Yarn Along

I haven't taken a picture yet of what I am working on. I just cast on this yarn in the colorway Denim. What my plan is, is to make a Totoro for Rowan. I am going to knit a big tube and then felt it and try and sort of fashion the guy from that doing something like this . If the felting goes as planned then I can just sort of add a white belly with wool felt and do the same for his eyes and then just use embroidery floss for his nose... that is the plan anyways. LOL

We are reading a few books right now, still plugging away at The Wonderful Adventures of Nils, and since it is sort of becoming winter-ish here we are reading The Mitten and The Hat by Jan Brett. Those are such lovely, fun books.

I have to say, I am very happy with what I have created this last few weeks. I have never given the children any homemade gifts during the holidays, it is so much fun to knit all these hats and mitts. I dream/goal for next year... sweaters!

Sounds like a fun experiment :) Kids always seem to like it when you make something for them- I know I loved it when Mum made things for me as a kid :)
