Run around the back,
Out through the window,
And off jumps Jack.
Youngest (8yrs) has been wanting to learn to "knit for real" for a while...no more spool knitting. And his face lit up when I told him I'd teach him. Within 30 minutes he was reciting a shortened version of the poem ("in the front, around back, out the window, off jumps Jack") in his head while working very seriously on his stitches.
And he was Q-U-I-E-T! Which is saying something because he's a top-volume motor-mouth, lol!
I broke my own personal rule for buying knitting books by getting this one...as it doesn't contain very many projects that I want to make. My saving grace is that I had a 33% off coupon.
And that cute yellow cup? I've liked them for a veeery long time and they're now 75% off at Borders!
BUT, those little hearts on the cover had me!
And I just knew they'd make cute Christmas ornaments!
The 2010-handmade-holiday-gift-production-line has officially begun.
And those little hearts are just rolling off the line!
They are so fun and sweet...
and they make the book purchase totally worth it!
I'm doing mine with worsted weight wool and size 9 needles.
Finished size after felting; approx 3"x3"
