We’ve got babies on the brain in my family these days, and no – i am not expecting. My sister had her little bundle of joy last week and named him Logan, which means i shall henceforth be calling him “Wolverine” (dorky x-men reference). Little Wolverine is already stylish and settling in nicely. My mama is up on her first Grandma visit and reports that he’s a “good baby” and my sister is rockin’ her new role of mama.
Doesn’t he look swell in his first Auntie-made hat? I think so, and i can’t wait to knit him more cute garments as he grows and supply him with an arsenal of handcrafted felt toys (whether he wants them or not!)
Speaking of baby toys: i’m developing a new line “For Small Hands” at my Etsy shop and would like a few more babies and toddlers to use as my test subjects. Are you a mama, dadda, auntie or granny? Leave me a comment to nominate yourself to test out and review a felted (quasi Waldorf inspired) toy for the beloved babe in your life. I’ll choose 1 to three lucky readers to send a toy to keep in exchange for some nice photos of the babe in question playing with my toy, and a brief review on his/her opinion of the thing.
And continuing to speak of baby related items: this week’s featured Fiber Friend is actually 2 friends in one! Two Welsh Corgis spin round and round after a tennis ball and baseball in an eternal game of not-quite-fetch. This mobile is perfect for the Corgi lovin’ family (gotta get that obsession going early!) and is sure to please parents and kiddos alike. Held into the air with hearts, these two Pemmies are full of love and can’t wait to stand guard over your crib.
That little red/white girl made my audibly giggle repeatedly as i finished up her details. So cute. I may not be able to sell these guys, after all.
So, comment away baby lovers! I can’t wait to send you a special handmade toy for your bairn to test out. Please comment with your location (city/state) and an idea for an interesting critter to feature on my next mobile.
