Aforementioned 11 year old craft/art loving daughter received a book from Father Christmas entitled knit it stitch it by Jane Bull. It is a super book with loads of simple but effective ideas that are relatively easy to achieve once the child has the hang of basic knitting and stitching.
She has just got stuck in and at the weekend made this little critter,
his name is Pudding. And now she is cracking on with a bobble cap. I am very impressed with her diligence.
