New babies like snugness and warmth, and Jen's just made a wee project that steps right up to the mark. It's a newborn sleepsack called Owlie. Knitted in the softest wool, with ample room for little legs to wriggle and kick, there's no fiddly buttons or ties to get in the way (or puzzle new parents). Keeping watch all the way round, there's a line of clever cable owls, with a practical purpose: the cabling pulls the sack in just enough for comfort. What a terrific colour too - Malabrigo Rios comes in a whole paintbox of happy bright hues, with plenty of gender-neutral options, and a single skein is enough for an Owlie. It's an unusual and practical gift for a new baby, and oh, how cozy it'll be to cuddle up in!
