knitted crib

 I have been wanting to knit a crib for angel babies, and when I finished this ice cream, it seemed the perfect time to start.
 The knitting was very straightforward, and instead of lace or ribbon I knitted icords to thread through the eyelets. A row of crochet around the edge in the same colour. Then it was simply a matter of constructing the crib. At first I thought maybe the hood should be sewn onto the top of the back of crib, but this did not look right. At this point I undid my sewing and tried it various ways until eventually putting it inside the crib.
This looked much better, and I am quite pleased with the result. Although I am sure I will get better when I have a bit more practice. So I guess I had better eat more ice cream :)
