A year ago I retired from working in a Bank for 37 years and was bored ,so I decided to start knitting again.

My favourite things to knit were baby clothes but sadly we have no grandchildren or other babies in the family.

I have been knitting for unfortunate new babies in Africa for the "Baby-pack project" .They say that this project started when an English lady living there saw babies being discharged from maternity hospitals wrapped in newspaper.

I have been trawling the "net" for months looking for patterns for babies that were just that bit different,because I wanted a "CHALLENGE" and came across YOU! They were a bit awkward to decipher at first but I have re-written them like an English pattern as I have gone along.

Next I bought a doll from e-bay UK,because I just had to have a knitted set of my own to keep. It is an 18inch Antonio Juan "Baby Awake" doll and although she has a gorgeous face I have taken a rear view photo showing that your patterns are as beautiful from the back as they are from the front.

Don't you think so ?

This is a favorite pattern of mine as well, and as yet still on my to do list. You inspire me to bring it to the top of the list! Your version is so beautiful. You've done an excellent job of knitting it and of photographing it. I hope you continue to enjoy knitting for real babies and your dolls for a very long time.

Lovely Story!

Yes Jacqueline, I think you have made a good job. The doll is just adorable from both sides. Nice to hear about a project like this for babies in Africa. To hear things like this makes me so happy!I always think we cannot help everybody, but we alwasys do small things for someone!
Sorry for my translation. Trying to improve all time but I find it difficult. Glad you can manage to re-write it.
