Thai Twist Kimono
Hi Ya'll --
Greetings from another Southern Knitter (although I hail from the 'other side' of the Mason-Dixon Line!).
I love children's books just as much as I love knitting. For the past couple of years, I've tried to pair a book with a knitted gift. Usually, this takes some planning. This time, it just sort of happened.
I was knitting up the Baby Kimono using Blue Sky All Natural Alpaca for a friend's soon-to-be-born babe. The Dad is of Thai decent so I thought it would be a cool gift. As I was knitting the kimono, my daughter was reading "Hush: A Thai Lullaby" by Mingfong Ho with pictures by Holly Meade. I realized this would make a perfect combination to give the family!
I'm having a fantastic time with this book! I'm plotting my next project now ....
