    January 2015, i decided to knit up another winter hat (intarsia) with wool scraps. The main color is black with brightly colored wool in various patterns. When I posted it to a Facebook group, the members loved it!

    Just a couple of weeks ago, I crocheted a little bunny amigurumi for my 16 year old daughter from the book Edward’s Menagerie by Kerry Lord…she absolutely loved it and wants a bat next! My younger sisters want an owl and a penguin from me for Christmas…luckily, I found both patterns for free on Pinterest!

    The cutest patterns ever are Debbie Radtke’s knit &felt tiy patterns. I have made the huggable hedgehog and the playful penquin patterns. Absolutely adorable. They were baby shower gifts and loved by all! Fun to knit and fun go give.

    I just made a really cute gargoyle for a friend who is getting out of hospital. The gargoyle will keep watch during the night. He’s a pretty cute creature, with a bit of an attitude. Pictures and more of the story are on my site http://www.swatchless.com

    Anything worn by a baby is extra cute. When my first grsndbaby was born I made him a dinosaur hat/tail for his newborn pics. The photographer loved it and wanted to know where we bought it. I also made him shark slippers that didn’t quite work out. Then when he was a few months old I made a fox sweater out of rust and brown yarn with pointy ears. He wore it proudly in the next round of photos. Baby just turned one and again wore a handknit sweater, Gramps Cardigan this time, for his photo shoot. I feel like I have to raise the bar for each one. Considering making toys too. Does anyone have a favorite for a toddler?

    i knitted baby hedge hogs (pattern from little cotton rabbits) for all the kids at my wedding. They were about business card size and the girl hedge hogs had a little flower on them. I didn’t want the kids to go away empty handed. They loved them! Even the adults guests were asking me to make them one. It was the perfect party favor.

    A year ago I knit the cutest little sweater for a friend’s baby (I’d love to send the pattern or photo, so cute). Oh I knit a lime green Yoda sweater & hat with Yoda ears for a friend’s baby boy! Older brothers loved it & fashioned a light saber out of paper tube 🙂
