A good knitting buddy of mine (Megan is my knitting mind twin - we are often working on the same thing at the same time....she has such good taste ;) ) has just released her first pattern - "Little Rocket". I couldn't help but drop everything else and knit this up straight away.
This is a very quick (one day) little knit using only a little bit of yarn. Very cute - Well done Megan!
The only bad (sad?) thing is that I have been singing the theme song from "Little Einsteins" ever since I started knitting this - which is very sad considering my kids haven't watched that show since we moved back in April!! (It's a kids cartoon featuring a rocket if you're not familiar).
I'm giving this to M1 for Xmas as her "Something Mum Made" - I had hoped to finish the blanket but sadly I don't think it is going to happen. I thought I had just 2 squares to go but now realise it needs to be wider so have about 6 squares to go, plus an edging (thanks for all the help in my last post about this) as well as some unpicking to do (sigh). The squares will make good mindless holiday knitting though (don't have to take a pattern) so I am hopeful I'll have it done in the not too distant future. I'm sure she won't mind.
So if you're after something quick as a kid pleaser, stocking filler, or even something different for the Christmas Tree this year head on over with your little bit of leftover yarn and before you know it you'll have a cutie little rocket too :D
