My quest for a handmade Christmas included thinking of a lovely present to make for two little boys. It had to be something suitable for little hands, something that could be posted and of course something that they would love to play with. I decided to knit them an army of little knitted aliens! The pattern is from a fantastic book called Knitted Nursery, which has knitting patterns for toys and clothes for babies and toddlers. What do you think of my rainbow army of aliens?
