My little man LOVES soft fuzzy things. He curls up on the floor and just rubs his face on every soft fuzzy blanket we have. My husband got a Sherpa blanket for Christmas and the little boy promptly absconded with it.
When I went to make him a winter hat and gloves I let him pick out the yarn. Granted I had to oversee this since he was strapped in the cart to prevent complete mayhem in the craft department, but he picked this yarn all the same.
It’s called RedHeart Buttercup yarn, and it was the softest yarn in the store. Also, by far the most annoying yarn in the world to work with. You can’t see stitches, and you certainly can’t follow a pattern with this stuff. But I muddled through and make him a hat, gloves, and socks (his favorite thing in the world right now) for the nasty winter that is to come.
Here he is running around the house with them on.
Just as a little bonus at the end, here is little man helping mama make baby sisters dress
He climbed all the way up on the table by himself to get to crochet hook (which he calls a pen) and set to work without delay.
