These chairs via MadebyGirl.
In handwork classes at school, we often have these conversations that go something like this:
Children: I wonder if you could knit a house!
Me: I bet you could figure it out.
Children: We could knit everything!
And they make a long list of the things they can knit....dragons, horses, and now we can say chairs. I should write down some time the things they think of knitting.

  1. Hello, new to commenting on you blog so thought I should say hello first, have been peeking in recently.
    Love those chairs too.
    Did you ever hear about the knitted house that Alison Murray did in England in 2007 - verly lovely. Here's a couple of links to the story and pictures, perhaps the children will be interested in seeing them too.
