They have been knitted for. I used to dread being knitted for as a child, but I hope these will go down OK, I've worked hard on getting them right for their personalities. If they don't like them, I just won't do it again.

This is for my godson aged 5. I'm hoping it's both boyish enough and bright enough that he'll like it. I know he'll love the pattern, that way it wiggles too and fro. It's also long enough that he won't grow out of it for a while. And acrylic so it's easily washable, just chuck it in the washing machine with all the other stuff.

These are for my godaughter aged 6. She's a girly girl so I know the sequins will be a hit. At least to start with. If she finds them scratchy later, they can be taken off. Again it's acrylic so it's washable, but this one is amazingly soft and fluffy. It was made from a kit, that supposedly taught you how to knit. Angry Possibly the instructions were written in cantonese, translated via babelfish into congolese (is that a language?) and then again into english, or a very rough approximation thereof. Fortunately I could already knit basic stuff and I am adept at making things up if the pattern is gobbledygook. Or stops abruptly before the end.

Look twice, buy once. Nooooo
Look twice, decide I can make one instead.

I like the "wiggly" pattern on the first scarf. So cool! And the sequin set is really cute!

I'm sure they will be very appreciative, I find the younger kids really appreciate handmade goodies, my little boy is never happier than when wandering around the house with a length of crochet with googly eyes stuck to it. He loves having something made for him especially and I'm sure your Godchildren will too.

The hat set is so pretty and the wiggly scarf would go down well with my Caterpillar/snake loving toddler  Grin
