Living Books and Living Knitting

Sometimes I like to combine something we're doing in our home school and something I want to knit.
Here's a great example of what I'm talking about. We're getting ready to send someone a "baby shower in a box" -- she doesn't live close enough to have the shower in person. Anyway, we thought a Jan Brett theme would be fun. Since the baby was born in the winter, we chose The Hat. Here's the Christmas stocking and hat I designed from Brett's illustrations (Kotch helped me chart the hat): Pretty cool, huh?

Oh, I love those! I enjoy Brett's illustrations, and to knit from them ... wow! What a great idea!

Oooh...when I read the books I thought about wouldn't it be neat to have patterns to match the knitted items! You did a GREAT job!
