I've been scouring etsy for some cool learning toys today. It's bad news when I do this, there is just so much cool stuff out there! A lot of it I can make, I even have a few suggestions of things my husband can make (blocks, etc.).
I became totally obsessed with babus toys organic wool felted teething rings and ring toys:
It's $11 US for the 3 ring and $16 US for the bigger version. Well priced for sure, but I know this is something I can make!
I spent last night visiting with baby M and her mom - and I know baby M (who is 7 months now) will be teething soon. That led me on the search for organic wool to make some ring teethers for baby M. Apparently these ones can be put in the freezer to get icy cold and many commerical teething helpers no longer can. Plus, they're just cute.
I chose the Handpainted Millspun Worsted weights in Ink, Tangerine and Green Tea. You can't find them in the etsy store right now because they are mine!
Aimee has lots of great stuff to choose from - handspun, millspun, and novelty yarns in a tonne of yummy colours! A skein of 140 yards of worsted weight yarn costs $10 US. There is also a great yarn club that I am dying to be a part of. You can sign up for 3, 6 or 12 months and get yarn delivered to you every month!
Why am I "Knitting a Baby?" well, technically I'm not. I am preparing for a baby in the near(ish) future, and since knitting for a baby is way less stressful, I'll blog about both! I am currently expecting my first child, due in July, 2011. I'm very excited to share the experience with you!
I am 29 and a wife and already a "mama" to lots of pets (4 cats and 2 dogs).
