Remember last summer (http://www.knittinghelp.com/forum/showthread.php?t=81175), when we had so much fun knitting toys together? We've decided to do it again this year.

So grab your knitting needles and crochet hooks, and start making some cute stuff!!!

If you need help deciding what to make, you can get lots of ideas on these webpages:

I've got one toy as a Travel Project (Agent P-http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/perry-the-platypus) and two lots of three to get done by Xmas (Jean Greenhowe's Owls-http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/owl-2, and Eco Fairies-http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/sally-the-eco-fairy).

Welcome to the KH KAL/CAL, both of you! :hug:

Last night, I made a quick toy, to get our KAL going.

A cute little Hula Hand Puppet. The free pattern is on the Lion Brand website.

It only took a couple hours to make, and it's so cute! :)

Cute, Sandy!

I have a tea party set planned for Ladybug's Christmas present, so plan to knit toy food.

OK, my friends. I'm two up now. You all need to catch up!
:teehee:

Here's the dress I made for a Barbie doll, using a free online pattern called "Summer Sorbet Dress for Barbie (http://www.geocities.com/iluvdlls/sorbet.html)".

I used Bernat Baby yarn, with teeny tiny needles. It went quicker than I thought it would.

I wish my nieces played with Barbie so I could make some clothes.
