I, or rather Tibbs, just received this in the post from my Godmother. I’m in love with it already and it’s not even jumper weather yet!
The last time she sent a hand knitted item for Tibbs, it resulted in this camera-cracking cuteness
What is it about knitted clothes for kids that makes them look so lovely? Is it the innocence and simplicity of the design? Is it the love that has gone into the wool as it was knitted? Is it the colours?
Don’t get me wrong, I’m no knitter. But I love people who are, and do. I raved about the Kaffe Fassett exhibition in Bath’s American museum earlier this year.
But I know that there are some parents who’d rather avoid the knitted children’s wear. The weird washing cycles, the magnet for squished food between every groove and fancy stitch, the constant ‘did you make it?’ questions.
Personally, I love cuddling my daughter when she’s wearing knitted woollen stuff – it’s like cuddling a solid warm sack of relaxation and cosiness. So here’s some more knitted hats and cardigans, if you like that sort of thing. Roll on winter!
