    Smile Making gift for baby

    I don't know the first thing about knitting or professional sewing but I'd love to make something special for my newborn arriving later this year. Maybe something like a quilt, blanket or sweater/hat.

    Where can I buy yarn,needles etc.? And what about taking a class...any in the city?

    I want to do something that can be a keep-sake.

    That's a wonderful idea!

    Have a read through these threads on GeoExpat.

    http://www.geoexpat.com/forum/thread5285-quilting.html

    There's quite a few on knitting and supplies.

    Also, there's a group that meets weekly

    Maybe I can help ??

    I got a babygirl last year and also started knitting and sewing. I have a lot of information but one problem it is mainly in dutch but I can try to translate is for you. I really knitted a lot and also sewed a baby blanked. If your are looking for patterns you can also have a go to look on the internet because there are a lot of free patterns for knitting on the internet.

    I can't tell you where to go because I am just new in Hong Kong and when I am also wanting to find out where to go to.

    Good luck.

    Thks Roosmarijn.

    I'm still trying to decide what I'm gonna do. Blanket i guess.

    Most likely I'll get some patterns in the U.S when I go back in few wks.Tons of craft stores there...so it'll be easier.
