Little things

Sometimes when you need something really quickly it's best to stick to little things. And that is just what I did recently. I needed two gifts in a hurry. So I looked at my knitting books and I surfed the patterns on Ravelry and found just what I needed.

The first is Baby Bear from itty-bitty toys. I used some left over Noro Kureyon Sock yarn and 3.25mm circular needles.


The second is a seahorse knitted with half a skein of Anchor Magicline on 3.25mm circular needles.


Both toys are knitted in the round with a minimum of seeming and both knit up really quickly. I love not having to sew seams.

The little toys look wonderful. Is the Noro sock yarn itchy at all?

Amanda said...

Sue, the Noro isn't itchy but its not at all soft and pretty useless as sock yarn.

Adorable! I love the striping on the seahorse. Absolutely precious.

Cute, cute! Love them! I just hate doing small projects like that seahorse, it just looks too small to handle. Maybe it isn't as bad as I imagine.

Great use for the Noro! Such cute little toys. Maybe when I redecorate the bathroom I should do a sea motif and get you to knit me a bunch of seahorses. :)
