I was poking around on the net for some interesting clothing patterns for my nieces for Christmas. One is 12 and one is almost nine and they love The Limited Too. Everything I saw was way too little girly for the grown up and worldly girls I am wanting to knit for.(Cause you all know how grown up and worldly 12 and 9 y.o. are!) Any ideas - or should I just make them some funky bags?

Rowan has pattern book for Juniors that looks cool. Also Luisa Harding. Hope that helps:)

She also likes all the wrist warmers like fetching and those little pedicure socks.

Hope that helps :)
