These would look darling in a nursery or a craft studio. I know, because I have them up on my wall right now! They depict a sort of “water cycle” for knitting. :) It’s raining outside > you make yourself a nice hot cup of tea or coffee > and then it’s time to knit!
If you don’t have any room on your own walls, they’d make a great last-minute gift for a baby shower (pun intended) or a knitting friend. You could print them out & frame them before you gift them, or for the more tech-savvy, how about putting the files on a pretty flash drive / USB stick? I think that would make such a cool present! The prints come in blue, pink, and green (in case the baby’s sex isn’t known yet), and I’ve included the original SVG file, so you can actually make them any colour you like!
The ZIP download includes:
- PDF file for prints in Blueberry
- PDF file for prints in Raspberry
- PDF file for prints in Green Tea
- SVG file of all prints + alternative colours & frames
- All prints are 5″ x 7″ to fit a standard photo frame (2 fit on an A4 sheet)
- All prints are vector & can be scaled as desired
Honestly, I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve promised to knit for a baby, only to find that they were suddenly racing towards their 2nd birthday. Oops! Have you done this? Or if you’re one of the amazingly organised knitters who haven’t, please tell us, how do you manage it? Luckily, printing these out is 100% faster than knitting anything. I’m glad I’ll have some backup from now on. :)
Looking at the lamb, I’m reminded of this poem, which was one of my favourites when I was little (and still is, actually):
There Were Three Little Sheep
There were two little sheep,
And three little sheep,
Came to see why baby
Wouldn’t go to sleep.
They peeped in the window,
And they entered at the door,
And their hard little hoofs
Tap-tapped on the floor.
Said the first little sheep,
You will waken all the lambs
In the fold if you cry!’
But the third little sheep
Never said a word,
For baby cuddled up
Like a tired little bird.
Then the three little sheep,
In the turning of a pin,
As they tap-tapped in.
Aww. I wish I could be in Wales over the spring; it was one of my greatest delights to take the train from Shrewsbury to Aberystwyth, and watch the new lambs hopping away to their mothers. Have a great weekend, knitters! Time to Knit!
