Is it called short rowing?
Thanks,

Hi Jen!

For the avatar, I just did a google picture search for knitting and it was one of the ones that came up. I thought it was too cute! :-)

For the W&T - I didn't know how to do it before this either, but I used the knittinghelp video for it - Here. It is called like Short Row with Wrap I think. It is really easy, but I would have to watch the video again to explain it, so you might as well watch it first and see if you get it! :-) If you still have questions, PM me and I will try to explain it! :-)

It was actually a relatively quick and easy project. I made it more complicated by doing all the color changes and stuff, but that is completely optional. Now, I have to find something totally cute for my niece (she's 8). I think she is jealous that she didn't get something too. Her birthday is in May. Maybe a little handbag...

Oh, thank you so much! I want to make this for my grandson the one who is 3, he will be 4 by the time I finish it!
About your 8 year old neice...I just knitted my 6 year old granddaugher an ribbon like material yarn scarf and made pom-pom balls of a matching yarn...she loved it so much my daughter told me (they are stationed in Japan) she took it to school the day after she got it to "show and tell"! So, you are on the right track..little girls love purses, totes, scarf's !! Have fun making it!
Jen

Thanks! I think a bag will be the way to go for my niece - her birthday is May 30th and they live in Mississippi, so not much use for cold weather stuff...

I think your grandson will love it!! My daughter keeps asking me where her fish hat is...oops!
