Last Minute Gifts for Kids

November 30, 2010

A few ideas for last minute gifts for the kiddo’s in your life!  Here is a picture of niece Mabel in the Harper’s Hood from Petite Purls website – Winter 2009 Issue.  I knit this up using 1 ball of the Diamond Luxury Merino/bamboo blend yarn in both red and cream.  It is an adorable little hooded scarf that took no time at all to knit up – a great quick gift that looks adorable on any of the kiddo’s in your life!

The next quick knit are these fantastic ” stay on booties” – a free ravelry download. I used the riptide colorway of the Sweet Georgia Tough Love Sock and made three pairs (and still had yarn left over). They are a great baby gift and actually stay on – even the chubbiest of baby feet. I didn’t take them off Bohdan’s feet for weeks!

Finally, cousin Clara is modeling my new favorite big-kid knit – the Shroodie (Shrug+hoodie) designed by Nicole Johnson and a free ravelry download, i made some modifications – like adding 3/4 length bell sleeves, and the border. I used up some leftover Galway Chunky yarn for this project and it is absolutely adorable. It can be worn with jeans and a T or fancy it up over a dress.  This is sure to be a hit with any of the older kiddo’s in your life!
