While pregnant in one of my nesting stages, I attempted to learn how to knit. The needles and the yarn have gone by the wayside, but I still appreciate knitted goods. They just feel so warm and personal compared to plastic toys. I bought my sweetie the lola rattle from Petunia Petunia shown above. Honestly, I think I love it more than she does at this point, but we'll see if she develops an interest in it as she gets older. I also have my eye on the knitted dolls and toys from Blabla. They're reasonably priced and possess a neat vintage quality.
