Handmade Gifts for my Grandson

I still haven’t seen my grandson and he turned 6 months old yesterday.  He’s growing like a weed and Grandmother Malone told me weighed almost 13 pounds at his last checkup.  She also tells me he smiles all the time!

I made these little sets for him for Christmas and my son will take them to him in two weeks.  I hope he’ll still be able to wear what I made and the things the family bought him for Christmas.

I want to make some bibs, which no baby ever has enough of, a quilt and some more hats and mittens if he’s grown out of the ones he gets very soon!  I want to make him some booties but need to wait until his Dad can measure his foot for me.  I’ll mail them to Grandmother Malone for him when they’re made.

  1. Rita, I’m so sorry you haven’t seen this little cutie yet. I hope you have been Skyping or FaceTiming with them so you can get to see him moving and smiling. We have been using FaceTime with our 2-year old grandson who doesn’t live near and it’s been surprisingly effective at him getting to know us as well as us getting know him. And now he has a new little brother, born on Christmas Eve. So far we’ve only seen him sleeping! Happy New Year to you and yours.

  3. Those are beautiful hats for your grandson. I have not crocheted in years. Would love to pick it back up. The only thing I ever made were pocketbooks many years ago.

  4. They were absolutely adorable! I think I’m going to have to take some lessons from you. Gwen’s been making some really nice things too! Maybe this should go on my retirement to learn list!
