My young niece Thea (she's just ten) took up knitting in the last little while and, while visiting us this summer, presented me with her very first completed project. A little pouch from the Klutz Knitting for Kids book.
I was very impressed with this project. Her tension is perfect and I really liked the colour of yarn she chose. Look how well it goes with my ipod, I'm going to use it as a wee ipod cozy this autumn(it helps the battery last longer). Thank you again Thea. Really well done.
I have great plans to have all kinds of links and lists on this blog, but I still have to learn how to do all those things. In the mean time I thought I would tell you about my favourite blog, Wee Wonderfuls. Operated by a woman in the States named Hillary Lang, it always has the sweetest projects going on. She sells her patterns on-line and, though I don't sign up for everything, I've never been disappointed with her instructions. Last autumn I purchased her Make-a-Long Story. Too, too adorable.
Here are Olive and Archie:
Their friend Mr. Paws:
And their sleeping rolls:
There is still more of the story to come. I can't wait for the next installment of the story of Olive and Archie (all about their first day of school). You can check out Wee Wonderfuls on-line, just Google it.
Progress continues on the pink sweater and the Asian cross-stitch, but I'll wait to show you photos when progress is more easily seen in a photo.
