    I have a grandson who these cute knitting projects would be nice for….. It’s always nice to make something to take back home when we go to visit for the family and always especially nice when it’s something hand made for them to keep and pass down (if it dosen’t get worn out!!) to possibly their kids. I try to go every year but did not make it down to Ohio from Ontario this year so I’ll have all winter to knit something special. I have pinned these to my pinterest board. I have grand daughters also I like to make for too!!
