What Can I Say

Somehow, I just can't seem to commit to larger projects these days. It's all about the mini for me. I knit a single fingerless glove, took the picture, then ripped it. I used that yarn to make baby socks and a hat for my nephews baby. Well, when he and his wife saw it, they thought there was too much pink in it for a boy. I was slightly disheartened, but then sort of happy I got to keep the cute little things. My nephews little girl, she's 7, saw the little set and said it would be perfect for her brother. I told her that her mom and dad thought there was too much pink in them for a boy so I'd make him another set with "boyish" colors. She rolled her eyes and said, "They're so cute. He doesn't know what color he's wearing. What difference does it make?" Out of the mouths of babes. Well anyway, I've been on a mini binge. Quick fixes you might say. And loving every bit of it. Here are my mini creations.








Yes... I've gone too far. I even made a mini hanger for one of the tops. Heh! I love it.

Doesn't your nephew know that pink is a hip color for guys these days! And I must say, that is the smallest mitten I've ever seen -- fun.

Gee, he could've worn the little socks indoors and maybe if u put a blue pom-pom thingy on the little hat...

Anyway, I love 'em and would appreciate a hand knitted gift for a newborn in ANY colour! x
