Other must-have craft ideas include:
- How to crochet a bicycle toe clip cosy - because all that lycra isn't quite enough to make the cyclist in your life look really hip and trendy.
- How to knit a sushi toilet paper cosy - because you really want a reminder of why you're sitting there in the first place (actually, I love sushi - but I'd rather eat it than knit it).
- How to crochet a smiling pooh (no, not Winnie-the-Pooh - the other kind)- presumably to sit next to your toilet paper cosy.
My sister joined a knitting group just after my niece was born, and they spent most of their time making breasts for midwives and health visitors to use in breastfeeding demonstrations.
According to this article, there's still quite a demand for knitted breasts in the NHS. I was interested to see that they're produced "in a variety of skin shades". The ones my sister made were neon pink, orange, green (presumably for breast-feeding Martians), red, purple... Yes, I think you can call that a "variety".
