Crafty Kits

Christmas has been and gone (Merry Christmas everyone) and one of the things I did was to make craft kits for the children.  I’m delighted with how these came out.  I started by dying up some yarn.


I added some undyed yarn into the packs too.  My daughter had a french knitting doll and my son had a set of bamboo needles.



Sadly, my daughter quickly lost interest on this occasion, but once my son was steered away from big knits like a scarf and had decided on a blanket for a teddy, he was away. I cast on for him and every so often I catch any dropped stitches and get the stitch count back down to the starting number. The mistakes are now happening less often and his knitting is neat and even.  In the near future we’ll be casting off this teddy blanket.
