(I also know that not everyone who visits here knits, so I don’t plan to share this type of thing very often. After all, I do have another space for my pointy sticks endeavors.)
I have recently finished up two projects for kids and both of them were simple knits with a lot of sweetness.
The first was a Lyric baby hat, which we are giving as a gift to a new little babe we know we made his appearance just before the holidays last year.
This was a free pattern and I used up scraps of yarn from other projects, so it ended up being a very frugal knit, but I think it turned out very sweet and special. I’m excited to see it on the head of the smiley little fellow it is intended for.
The next thing I finished recently was a softie toy for my 3 year old, Amelia. It’s the Knitted Baby Doll pattern by Amy Gaines.
Amelia loves it!
Baby Sunflower has been welcomed into the fold. Amelia’s only requests are that she would like Sunflower to have the knitted headband with the bow (it’s an option in the pattern) and she wants a hat of her own to match Sunflower. I think I can accommodate the little mama on both counts.
This was a paid pattern, but I think I will get a lot of mileage out of it. In fact, Lucy has already requested that I knit her a little baby doll in purple. And I can see this being a gift for other kids in my life as well.
So, my knitting and crocheting friends, what have you been making for your kids? Any super successful projects? Perfect patterns? What about the rest of you? What have you made for your kids lately?
PS – I’m on Ravelry, if you’d like to friend me over there.
