Baby Shower Gifts / New Baby Gift Round Up

I think because this month is my littlest’s second birthday, it has put me in a reflective mood thinking about those last few weeks leading up to his birth.

I love buying some yarn from a new place and I love that my knitting then carries that memory of a place explored.
