  4. My son seems to LOVE tags. I've even caught him sucking on his tags on his shirts! So the throw would work wonders. Especially now that we're trying to break him of the pacifier. UGH! And wouldn't it figure, we're both Traci/Tracy's. :D Oh and the sweaters would fit my son. He's in that size clothes.

  28. I love the knitted sweater. As a non-knitter it is beyond me how someone can knit from the top of her head such a pattern! You are certainly prolific with your tag comforters, you have a lot of different ones. I would choose a boy one as I don't know what is in my belly yet.

  29. This is a beautiful set. I would love to give this to my little sis...a soon to be mom of a little girl this August. As a first time auntie I'm dying to spoil my sis and her baby!
    Thanks for the awesome giveaway.

  37. I'm currently expecting my first child and would love a handmade toy for them! We're not sure yet if it's a boy or girl so I'd prefer a gender neutral one (maybe green or yellow).

  40. I scrolled through all the other blogs hoping for a SMS poster from Ireland-- 'cause I'm coming for a visit NEXT MONTH! YAY! Boyfriend and I are flying in and out of Belfast, which is, apparently, a sister city to where we're from: Nashville, TN.

    No kids of my own so I don't have a preference, but I'm glad to have found you and glad to follow you :-)

  41. I won a knitted vest for my 4 year old daughter last year, and I will tell you that I was so honored - it was beautiful, and having tried knitting myself (and failed spectacularly), I could tell it had taken a lot of time and love.

    I would be honored with your grandmother's work, it is beautiful.

  48. I added you to my blog list on my blog Muffins and more. I think I should win because I simply have the cutest baby boy ever - check it out http://muffinsnmore.blogspot.com/2010/05/baby-hat-with-crocheted-sheep-applique_12.html
    He is the sweetest thing - BUT he tries to EVERYTHING! He tried to eat me, our dog, all of his toys ... he is only 6 months old and already ate pizza!!! I am not kidding! So I think he would love to eat the tags of the taggie comforter - and it would give all the rest of the family (and the dog) a rest of being eaten! :-)
    Thanks for the giveaway!

  54. I'm following. These are lovely! I'd like a neutral tag comforter -- maybe some yellows and sage greens that would work for a baby to be. PS: I'm a sentimental girl with a sense of humour too, but can't think of anything sentimental or funny to say... Thanks for the giveaway. mybabyappleseed(at)yahoo(dot)ca
