Brendan loves a car and a truck. But I thought, since his parents are both stellar cooks, that he might want to have some super fun cooking play time as well.
Cut to two months of fervent crocheting later, and I think we've got a respectable line up of dishes for him to cook.
As luck would have it, he recently became the proud owner of a kitchen, (complete with microwave and dishwasher) but no play food as of yet. (He's been cooking matchbox cars. I hear that they're very high in protein.)
This might be the most fun I've had with yarn in a long time. Short and simple projects, each fun enough to keep my attention for a few hours, and then--poof--over.
My bible was this book (which I checked out from the library three times. Yep. Three. Plus the renewals. And the fines.)
And ravelry, of course. And google.
Anyway, you always take a risk when you make stuff for kids (since they're honest), but here's hoping he becomes the best imaginary chef around.
