Emma has knitted these - and I get to taken them to school. There's another couple to come I think.
These are sooo cute. Emma is very clever - I can only knit squares, rectangles and the trickiest part of baby booties (sounds weird I know but I always stuff up the easy part).
They look like fun. I'm sure the kids will enjoy them.
Emma is a very talented knitter - she gets her designs off online forums and creates them.
These are gorgeous - I didn't think the next generation was knitting but how creative are these?!Yesterday at the museum, I saw (and did not photograph - d'oh!) a set of soft toys based on microscopic bacteria... these included salmonella, chicken pox and ecoli... I doubt this provides Emma with any inspiration but it does show that imagination is the only limit ;-)
Claire - you'd be surprised at how many younger (18-28) people are knitting!! Even owning their own businesses creating amazing yarns ... she's a member of ravelry - http://www.ravelry.com/tour/peek - and they have some amazing patterns & creations.
ohhh I love these!! I was looking up patterns to do some of these when I found a picture of a jellyfish!! It's a Japanese style called amigurumi but alas I have no knitting talent! Go Emma!! :)
Sooooo cute. I used to knit and I am in awe of Emma's creations. It is very exciting to see this traditional hobby undergoing a revival. Would love to see the look on the kids faces when they get to meet these new friends. AK
