It's no secret that I love knitting for little people. The projects are so tiny. They're so adorable. I can't help myself. And, I may have reached a new personal best for gooshy mushy cuteness with this latest project.
I can't help grinning. It's cute, right? Why is it so much fun to superimpose animal ears on infants?
It's so cute that I might have to sit down and try to remember exactly how I made it, and possibly write up the pattern so I can make it again, and again.
My cousin and her husband are welcoming their first child at summer's end. She'll be the first of the next generation on our side of the family. It's a pretty big deal. To make things even better, they're having a GIRL! My favorite!
I was a little stumped when I tried to choose a pattern for her. For as many baby girl patterns as I have in my Ravelry favorites, I'm at no loss for options.
Still, I wasn't sure what to knit. After I received my shower invitation and had a confirming conversation with the aunt-to-be, I formed an idea. I love working around a theme.
However, the pattern I wanted to knit didn't exist, so I improvised. I wasn't really sure it was going to work until it was finished. But, I'm pretty tickled with the end result.
Also, can I just take a moment to say how good it feels to have finished a knitting project. I'd almost forgotten the satisfaction; it's been ages.

Way too cute!!!
Catching up reading your blog posts and my head just exploded with the CUTENESS of this! The inner me screams "I want one!" while the outer me says "knit one, silly". Okay, maybe I don't need the ears but the rest of it is just...just...FABULOUS!! I can knit, barely, and I occasionally scroll through your creations for inspiration. Now I'm going to have to go find me some red and white yarn and figure this out : )
