FO: Baby gifts

A very close friend had a gorgeous wee baby boy back in Sept.  I really wanted to gift something special to this baby and initially had grand plans of designing and knitting a baby blanket.  In the end time got the better of me and I had to put the designing part to one side and settle for knitting up a published pattern instead, but I am pleased I did because I am thrilled with the result.
I chose the Serenity Blanket which is a fabulous free pattern, which I knitted in John Q Mia 10 ply in cream.  I adapted the pattern slightly to make it smaller as I wanted it pram/car seat sized rather than cot/bed sized.
Here it is blocking:
And all finished:

I also whipped up some bibs and wipes to go with it.
