Thanks to the magic of scheduled posting, I can talk about people's Christmas gifts without ruining any surprises.
This fall I managed to pick up a lot of baby craft stuff since both a cousin and a friend were expecting. Since I got a great deal on a pattern book (Ben Franklin's 90% off summer clearance was very good to me), I figured I could make a Christmas gift for Taylor (cousin's baby, born on 9/9/09).
This is all straight from the pattern except for some of the blues. I think at this point I already own most of DMC's purples, and I just needed to get a few skeins to cover all the pinks.
Since this'll be the third thing Taylor would get from me, I figured I should make something for Taylor's first cousin Carter. Since Carter's going to be two in January, that ruled out most baby patterns, and I figured I'd give him a few years before actively pushing DC Superheroes. (I think based on movie and cartoon releases, the boys in my extended family seem to prefer Marvel)
Taylor's Nursery Rhyme alphabet. The book also has a dinosaur alphabet, but I thought the repeating letters/dinosaurs would be too boring.
CARTER was put on hold for the Christmas Sweatshop since I wouldn't be seeing those family members.
