I discovered the Children’s Lit n Knit blog yesterday which helps you create little gift sets for the little ones in your life by pairing children’s books with related knitting and crochet patterns for toys, hats, blankets, etc. This is such a great idea for a blog! My two favorite things to give my nieces and nephews are books and hand-made toys and dolls. (I am the aunt and godmother who is always making sure that everyone has the essential books like Where the Wild Things Are or A Light In the Attic, etc.). I have made my own little gift sets, like when I made this Little Red Riding Hood doll for my niece, Ellie, and paired it with a copy of the story
or when I created this blanket of a cottage in the woods and paired it with a picture book of Goldilocks and the Three Bears and three little teddy bears as a gift for when an old friend was expecting a baby.
But this blog is filled with a ton of great book / knit combinations that I have never considered before. I am definitely going to keep it in mind when I have to come up with gift ideas in the future!
