Knits for kids

The tiger hat for DS is almost done - decreases for the crown have started, a la Knitting Rules. Right now it seems a bit big, we'll see. Then fingerless gloves from the same yarn, Opal Rainforest, and hopefully the tiger stripe will show up better in a smaller diameter thing. Gloves and socks have similar circumferences, don't they?

The socks are done, and fit "okay" though a little warm for the summer weather. These are Gjestal Reggia. DD would prefer a stretchier sock, so next step is to find a stretchier, thinner yarn. Another entry on the "to be knitted" list. The field hockey stick cozy is next - can't wait to see how that yarn knits up. I'll bring that to the book discussion tomorrow night.

That tiger hat is so cute!!! Yes, I would think the stripes would show more on the mitts because they have a circumference similar to a sock. The socks you're making are cute too. How long is that "to be knitted" list you mentioned? Mine is VERY long and seems to grow faster than I cna knit. Hey, I'm not sure what part of CT you're in, but did you hear about the Fiber Fest tomorrow in Vernon? I've never been to one, but we're going to go check it out. My e-mail is on my profile and blog - shoot me an e-mail if you're interested!! :)

Cool hat & socks! I love knitting for kids . . . so much less worry about whether it'll be appropriate for an office environment, more attention to whether it'll be colorful enough for the child's taste.
