Knitted Toys :: Project #3

1:19 AM

Itty Bitty Toys is my current favorite knitting book.  How could it not be when it has such amazing patterns as these!  Easy to follow directions that turn into beautiful handmade toys.  Can't get any better than that!

One of my favorite things about knitting is seeing the project take shape.  That was especially true for these knits.  These little beauties are on their way to two of my favorite nieces!  The other favorite has a sweet little puppy coming her way.

For Zoe, I made a cat and mouse reversible toy.  I love how it turned out and can't wait to make some more reversible toys!

Little Charlotte Ann is still, well, little, but I still wanted her to have something from her aunt!  I chose these cute nesting boxes.  MANY easy garter rows later and I had 4 boxes.  The bigger ones could even be used to store toys.

I mentioned at the beginning of the week that there was some family weaved into all these projects.  While I was working on the nesting boxes, I taught my little girl to knit with the loom.  Bonding while crafting.  Good times...

  3. If I could wake up tomorrow and know something out of nowhere it would be knitting and sewing... There's something so relaxing about those two things. I love everything you make, Jen! Genius and lovely!

  6. AW! These are adorable gifts! I love the little knitted creatures and the nesting boxes are amazing! Are the boxes supported by cardboard? or are they soft structures?

    Blessings & Aloha!
