This little babe is going to be wrapped in love. The sweater is beautiful, and I agree... you are going to be a magical Oma.

Oh How I love sweaters. Will baby be able to wear the original, also? Such beautiful work you do. It is pretty evident that love is stitched right in every item. Hugs...


Oh my heart skipped a little beat seeing these beautiful knits! It's amazing that you knit the same pattern for your first child and now your first grandchild. Nothing could be more special.
Those three triangles of green are too cute too. Jx


so much handmade love
the baby will look so darling in these knitted goods


What a fortunate baby. Love the "oma m"

Best wishes to All.


How cute are these! There is something so very special about knitting for little tinies isn't there.

this is extremely precious & special
I'm sure B&C are aware of this
you must be so eager & excited to meet this baby now !!
sending big hugs to the whole family


you made that? that's amazing!


I gasped when I saw that first sweater (so pretty and my favourite colour when I was a little girl). The earthy shades of the new set are beautiful. You are a gifted knitter and will be a wonderful grandmother to a lucky baby.


Margie this is beautiful :)
I'm so excited to deck this little one out in your gorgeous knits!!! Any day now indeed!

Aaaah Margie, they are so lovely, some things never change! Fun to remember and fun to be able to use the pattern again. We also have lots of home made little cloths waiting to be used again (and again !) And ..... grand children are FUN !!!

Love To Crochet

Congratulations on being a grandmother. I have a simular outfit my aunt crocheted my daughter. She wore it along with my 2nd daughter...one day....I too hope to pass it on to a grandchild.

Holy holy holy!! Babies handmade knits and keepsakes from the cherished past... The divinity of all this stirred in me, is my spirit gift to your grandchild soon to arrive....


Oh! I am in love with hat!


gorgeous. every stitch.

Melissa R

Oh a baby! Congratulations :) Imagine the world that you will be able to show this babe. Enjoy!


this is precious


Tiny baby things, so precious. Wishing the little one safe passage in the next few days. My Mother in Law has a stack of Pingouin magazines from the 70s and 80s that she inherited from her Mum, such fun looking through them for ideas.xxx

There is so much joy and love in a sweater pattern knitted for a grandchild that was once knitted for the child. I too, have used patterns that I knit for my daughters for my grandchildren.


You made a beautiful work, Margie ! So much softness and love in each stitch ! This little marvel of sweater will make the baby want to hurry to arrive :)

So precious Margie! What a wonderful heirloom.


They're both so lovely and the hat is adorable! I wish I could find these color combos in the sweaters available in my size, too ;)


Congrats on your soon to arrive grandchild! The sweater is lovely and has held up wonderfully over 2 decades! The hat is also very cute

ana @ i made it so

this is so beautiful! all the best for the healthy arrival of your grandchild.


Dear Margaret, I was inspired by your lovely hat and tried to knit something like that. If you are interested, please be my guest.
