The bug for knitting little people clothes has truly bitten, but the problem is, it’s really hard to find nice knits for little boys.  Has anyone else noticed this?

For girls, there are literally hundreds and thousands of gorgous little frilly, lacy, pretty items you could make, but finding a proper little boy jumper or cardigan is a bit of a minefield.

I have found a few though, and my queue continues to be added to with cutesy little baby items, anyone would think I had children myself, but no, they are for my neighbours little boy.  Anyway, I thought I would give you a sneak peak of some of the lovely little things I have found on my self assigned mission:

This is a proper little boys cardigan, it’s wonderful, and is definitely one that I am going to make for Freddy.
