    Double Pointed Needles Needed

    I am beginning to knit again after many years away from it. I thought I would try my hand at finger puppets for my grandchildren. Boy was I wrong. These puppets are too tiny for my beginning status. I was thinking they would be something simple but they have several color changes and are worked in the ¿round¿ with double pointed needles.<BR/><BR/>This would be a good book for a very advanced knitter. If you have made socks or done any other work in the ¿round¿ with double pointed needles, then you will have a grasp of what is needed to create these cute puppets.<BR/><BR/>The directions are not overly complicated to read IF you know the abbreviations and how to work each type of stitch. Do you know what ssk means? It is a left slant: slip, slip, knit. Even reading the directions, I didn¿t get how to do this stitch. There is a section on ¿how-to¿ but most of it goes over my head. The patterns are also skill rated but even the ones marked as easy are still worked in the round, rather than worked flat and sewn together.<BR/><BR/>There are over 30 different puppets to knit and they would make great gifts for children. These are especially nice when a child needs to be entertained quietly and without electrical power! Just make sure your skills match the difficulty level.

    Fun Little Toys

    Knitted Finger Puppets by Meg Leach contains 34 quick projects for finger puppets. This is a good way to use up leftover yarns, and these wonderful portable toys can provide hours of play in public places when you have to wait. Whether your child is in church, in a doctors office, or going for a car ride these will provide fun, imaginative, and quiet playtime. The instructions are clear and there are good photographs of each puppet. All skill levels are represented here, with most being easy. There are basic knitting instructions, instructions for using DPNs (double pointed needles), and increasing/decreasing. Using DPNs takes practice , but once you catch on, they are fun to use. There are also instructions for very basic crochet stitches. You can make individual animals and characters or make a complete themed group. The themes are a North Pole Christmas, circus, and fairy tales. This is a nice book to make some quick toys for family or charities. These are popular in some charities, especially for children in hospitals or dialysis.
