Okay, I babysit for some of the most knit-worthy kids ever. Ages 6, 4, and 3.
Two weeks ago, they played with the tiny chickens and people I had brought along. It was really cute and rewarding to see them enjoying the toys I had made.
The next week, last Saturday, I brought yarn, knitting needles, and my copy of Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi.
I started on a gnome as they looked through the book and started placing orders: “Can you make me a mermaid with a pink tail and blue eyes?” “Can you make a hot dog next?”
I finished the gnome, made the mermaid,
didn’t have the right colors for a hot dog, and so began a girl instead. I didn’t finish the girl until today, so I took some detail shots:

It’s so fun knitting for people who enjoy things like this!
