La la la la la Rocket

Little Rocket

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

Such a cute idea! I love when knitting and hi-tech combine, it always makes me smile!

You are a knitting *machine*!! Love it!

Luckily I dont know the song youre referring to. I suffer dreadfully from ear-worm-itis and have a head full of stupid kids songs. Thank heavens PJ no longer loves the Wiggles!

That is sooooo cute, M1 is going to love it...... I would like to thank you for now putting the fabulous theme tune for little Einsteins into my head, catchy isn't it!!!! I am sure it will not be in there long as Kalem got a keyboard for his birthday and my ears have been ringing all morning. Nana is bringing round some headphones later today, THANK GOODNESS! But for now.. we're going on a trip in a little rocket ship la la la la arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh !! X

That rocket is so fun! Too bad about the blanket but it's always nice to have some mindless knitting to work on after the craziness of Christmas :).

I really wish I'd started knitting when my children were much younger. There are so many toy and baby patterns out there that I'd love to have knitted!
