hunkering down


The weather here has taken a turn for the cold and snowy, so Elise and I have been laying low, staying cozy.  We are giving Elise a play kitchen for Christmas this year, so I've been busy knitting fruits and veggies to go along with it.  

What are your thoughts on play kitchens?  Elise enjoys working in our real kitchen, so at first I wasn't sure if she would get much out of a play kitchen.  After watching how creatively she plays with her dolls and stuffed animals, I think she will have a lot of fun pretending in a play kitchen, too.  I'll keep you updated!  ;)  

I found all the fruit and veggie patterns (free!) on Ravelry.  Do you knit?  I haven't knit for awhile, but I'm getting back into it.  I'm clementine on Ravelry if you'd like to be knitting friends!

  1. I think a play kitchen will be a very good addition! I wanted one for Sixtine but she won't get it until January. I too have noticed that she enjoys making stories, and play pretend - I am sure she can make the difference between cooking/baking with me and playing with a mini kitchen. I say: go for it! Elise will have a blast. I wish I knew how to knit :( Great job!

  2. Soooo cute!!! I needle felted a whole pile for L a few years back. I just brought out the play kitchen for LJ and he enjoys playing with it. I love when he sets his little table and pretend eats. I'm sure she'll love it!
    PS if you're on FB check out Jen's Felted Jems if you have a chance. My new small business. : )

    1. I didn't know that you were a needle felter! Have you blogged about the play kitchen? I'd love to see the food you made. I am dying over the cuteness of your needle-felted owls!
