Commissions - A Christening Set

I have been working recently on this heirloom Christening set consisting of a shawl, bonnet and booties. The set was knitted in ecru DK New Lanark wool with a gold coloured lurex thread incorporated into the border of the shawl, the cuff of the booties and throughout the bonnet. The bonnet and booties were completed with gold coloured ribbons.

I designed the shawl myself. It consisted of panels with a lacy leaf design separated with stocking stitch panels. The edging had a different leaf design. The bonnet and booties were adaptions of old patterns.

The set was a commission for the christening of a friend's grand-daughter. I also knitted a commemorative cushion cover. I can't show you a photo of that because it is personalised with her name and date of birth. I've previously produced personalised cushions for wedding gifts.
