I have a goal to give one handmade gift to my kids every birthday and Christmas. Now, it's something they love. I'm sure I'll reevaluate once they start complaining about mom's crazy homemade presents.
This year I made a trio of teeny-tiny mermaids for Ellery.
The pattern is from the book Teeny-Tiny Mochimochi by Anna Hrachovec. My kids adore this book. They steal it from my crafty room and flip through it for hours. I figured it was high time I actually made them something from it.
She's named them Ellie, Eleanor and Ellery. She's got a bit of a George Foreman complex. She names everything after herself.
They were such a quick, fun knit (other than thinking I was going to break my needles because I was knitting so tight). I think I might be addicted. I think these mermaids might need some dolphin and fishy friends.
