Another Christmas gift that i decided to make was for my two older kids(3 1/2 and 16 months). They were fun to make but took about a week and half. I made them while we were in Dallas with my DH on his job venture. But here are a few pics of them. On one side is the Upper case letters and on the other side is the lower case alphabet. They are also bean bags so they can have fun with them as well.
Alphabet Bean Bags
These longies i knitted while i was stuck in Lubbock, TX with my DH who had been sent out fro training fro his new job. They had told us he would be gone from August 15th to October 15th possibly the 1st of November. But the first of October rolled around and me and the kids missed him so we took a drive north thru Texas to go see him. So while i was in Lubbock with him i went out and bought me some new needles and yarn and started to knit. I never knew how fast newborn longies would go since i had never knit that small before.
When i started these longies it ook me awhile to decide what i watned to do, but i knew i watned it to be her coming home outfit. So i made it really girly and i loved the stripes. So int eh end i decided to make a hat to go with it. And all that is left is to find a really cute shirt to go with the star on the butt of the longies.
And a cute little hat to come home in or to wear for the first time.
