hand knit, with love, please just wear it!!

i bribed esme' with a small bag of chocolate chips to get her to wear a pair of leg warmers to school today. leg warmers that i knit for her. anyway, the chocolate worked and she kept them on all day long and i am not above using bribery again in the future.


and here is the hat that i knit for my hubby- i promised him a skull hat all winter but there were too many other projects to complete and his hat was continuously bumped by another hand knit. a wool diaper cover for harper, mittens for esme', sweaters for dolls, and of course there were the several hats that i managed to knit for myself this season. but, at last, i knit him a hat and i think we may even have a couple more weeks of cold-ish weather ahead. he loves it and has been wearing it constantly... and this time the bribery is completely optional!

Both projects are so cute! If your dd tires of your bribery, you could steal them and use them for arm warmers!
