for the sake of cuteness....

it's always hard to know what to get excited about knitting in summer, isn't it? yes.. i realize we're not at summer yet... but you know, warmer weather usually slows things down for us knitters...


and i would looove for things to be just as hopping in the spring and summer (interest wise) as they are in the fall and winter....
and i can't stop thinking about toys.

they are the cutest... the cuddliest.. the squishiest... and full of colour. no?
and they're cute. (i know.. i said that already)...

and i always thought i hadn't had a lot of experience with toys... but it turns out, i have made a few :) and i have to say... it's an addictive path.... so you know, i'm just warning you. ;)

remember this guy? he's a creation of rebecca danger's designs.. louie the lovebot

 
these were a labour of love for sure... dollies for my nieces. the pattern is: sally, the eco fairy


this little guy is sooo cute.. i've made two three of them. pattern: lamb by susan b. anderson


 this guy gets a lot of love around here... the pattern is sheldon by ruth homrighaus


and these guys... oh geez. i have such a crush on them. and so does everyone else! because i need to stock many more of them ;) the pattern? bunny nuggets by rebecca danger (who else?)


 there are more... but i think you get the idea... toys are addictive, and so fun to make! and really, they make the best gifts... did i mention that they're the cutest?

so what about you? are you a fan of knitting and crocheting toys? do you have a favourite pattern? i'd love to hear about it! xo

  1. Becca I say you should host a toy KAL this summer! It's perfect for those wanting to dip their toes in the toy making arena, plus they're fast and if you make a ton now at Christmas time you won't be pulling your hair out :)

    I love bunny nugget...soooooo freakin' adorable!
