This is my last baby shawl I have recently knitted for my very good friend Kim. It's a square patterned shawl with a square garter stitch insert in the middle with a lace edging.

This photo was taken while it was blocking and is extremely delicate!!
These cute wee jerseys were knitted for a charity organisation in New Zealand called Kiwi Family Trust who were trying to collect 1000 jerseys for under 4 year olds so they could distribute them to needy children this winter throughout NZ.
