More quick gifts

A friend had a dilemma. She wanted to give her young niece and nephews some toys for christmas but didn't know what to buy for children who are already swamped with toys. So I suggested something hand knitted and she took me up on the suggestion. So I set aside a few evenings and got to it.

itty-bitty toys by Susan B. Anderson came to the rescue once again, helped by my stash of left over sock yarn. I knitted two Baby Bears and a Monkey.

My friend was very pleased to have something unique to give to the children.

I hope those of you who were knitting for christmas managed to get it all done in time. For those of you who believe in christmas, I hope you have a merry one and for those of us who don't : Bah Humbug!

That was quite a job! Knitting toys always takes more time than you think. But they are lovely!
