My son's private Special Needs school is called MDE School and their "mascot" is the bumblebee. So I felt inspired to create something for the school this year. Let me tell you, the bumblebee was cute, quick and did I mention cute? I could make 12 of him. The letters on the other hand....quick, sure. But of the persnickety pattern type where you constantly need to check the pattern while working, "wait, was I supposed to decrease on this side or is that the next row?" Of course, when making angled and perfectly symmetrical letters, one must be persnickety and the pattern is well written, easy to follow and cheap at $1 per letter. Just not good for a distracted crocheter like myself. Oh and she even offers some letters free.
Unfortunately, my 4yr old loves the letters. And she is learning letters. Thus, I feel a compulsion to crochet her a set of her own. Luckily school starts in less than 2 weeks and that does a pretty good job at squelching any and all creativity on my part.
"But what about the boobies?" you may be thinking. I bring you the boobie hat. I sooo wish these were around when I was nursing my kiddos. I love the "in your face" statement it makes about nursing in public (AKA...get over it!) and it's so fun and quick and easy to make. I especially like that the pattern comes in sizes beyond newborn, since some of us *cough, cough* nurse a bit longer.
I cant wait to see it in action, once my friend has her newest babe and the weather cools down a bit!
