… they become children.
And all that baby knitting I did last year, for all those friends’ babies? Outgrown long ago, as those babies become kiddos. And while those kiddos won’t all be getting handknit gifts on a regular basis, I’ve happily discovered that knitting for my toddler niece is a lot like knitting for an adult. BUT FASTER.
Once I put the red buttons on, they seemed to come screaming out of nowhere.
So I added the red trim to match –just a single crochet stitch around all the edges.
Thanks for all the links to great patterns! I’ll close comments on that post on Thursday, and pick a random winner.
I’m sorry I haven’t responded to all your contest entries and comments. I spent the weekend recording new songs with this band I’m in, and was rewarded with a wretched cold. The only good part of being this sick is that I have less guilt about shirking all that work I should be doing, and wasting the day on the sofa knitting and watching MSNBC election coverage in hopes that Rachel Maddow will appear and save us all from the Crazy (which she does just often enough to keep me watching).
