Don't you just love to knit for little girls?! I do...well, I normally do :roflhard: :rofl: In this instance I am so happy to say that it's done! I say this because 1. I DETEST knitting with acrylic and b. I HATE knitting with big needles....I used both on these projects! I did this because I was knitting for kids, 2 of my great-nieces. Acrylic, you know, washable yarns are the best for kids, what can I say?!

Okay, here's what we have....
Short Snort Tank from KnitandTonic (http://knitandtonic.typepad.com/) knit with Woolease (oops, forgot about this, didn't use big needles on this one, rather my usual size 6s!) and to go along with it, a child sized Anthropologie Inspired Capelet (http://peonyknits.blogspot.com/2005/11/anthropologie-inspired-capelet-fo-and.html) also knit with Woolease.
The other 2 sets are capelets and simple raglan tops from Loop D Loop (http://knitpicks.com/books/itemid_30620/books_display.aspx#) these were knit with size 10 circs and Lion Brand Jiffy (hate this yarn!, but great for kids, right?!)
Please look over my terrible knitting! I lost my ability to control my tension using this Jiffy yarn and bigger needles! What's up with that :shrug:

Sorry, I'm done with my whining about not liking the yarn, it was all worth it because I knit these for my lovely great-nieces :cheering:

:oops: I'm sorry!
I used to love it, too, I loved all LB yarns. But the more that I knit the more that my taste changes! I'm afraid that I have become...a bit of a knitting snob. What can I say :shrug: I likes what I likes....and, I've finally admitted that I have this problem.........LOL, just kidding, I've known for a while :teehee:

Your niece looks very pleased. Did you let her choose what color she wanted or do they wear different sizes? BTW, I can't believe you don't like big needles -- it makes everything go so much faster!

Thanks, guys :muah:
The girls happen to be the same age. No, I didn't have them choose the colors, they didn't know I was knitting something for them. I feel ashamed because Olivia's little brother came running to me, too, and I had knit nothing for him :pout: So I'm going to have to whip up a hat for him, and Ryleigh's (other niece) little brother, too!
Jane, I don't know what it is, I just enjoy knitting with smaler needles. Perhaps when I use some of the Lamb's Pride bulky yarn that I have I will enjoy using bigger needles more, :shrug: who knows?!
