My first shipment to KAS ever - made from 2014 but shipped so late in 2016 I counted it as 2017

The dog with sweater was particularily hard to part with, I fell in love! Sadly, the patterna are from an old Norwegian kids' knitting book, so they are not available online. The "cat" (far left) is from same book, NOT as memorable, so put it gently ...
The two leftmost bears are Foliage Bears, my favorite bear pattern - you knit the front, then the back, then stitch them up - no positioning - and the curves just make themselves! Has such a cuddly butt. :-) (Free pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/foliage-bear)
Then there is a Magic Loop Teddy, which I found hard to make, but the yarn was yummy (Mirasol Miski)
The 4 dolls and lion are Jolly Jumpsuit dolls
Next to the dog in the top line is a Crochet Giraffe (free pattern by Emma Dent), which was a very nice crochet experience.
Otherwise there are
10 pairs handwarmers
1 Zanny's T-sweater - my first knit sweater ever, which gave me confidence to keep knitting - thank you, Zanny & KAS!
1 " Non Stop Top" by Torunn Espe which is so stretchy it fit me! Loved making it, top down & seamless.
2 "Roundabout worsted ribbed child's top" by Emmy Kay, a free top down seamless pattern I loved making so much I made two! (free pattern: https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/roundabout-worsted-ribbed-childs-top)
1 "Top Down Seamless Baby Jerkin", free pattern by Suzetta Williams with edits for this larger size available online. I loved this making one too, I'm itching to make another one! :-) Very girly though, and I make it a point to make unisex stuff as much as possible.
Then there are squares. I taught myself to knit through KAS patterns - I am forever indebted to KAS for making patterns available that are easy enough that beginners aren't put off trying, and provides a glorious goal to keep practising. Thank you, KAS! I got addicted to the handwarmers pattern and still love making them.

A very generous parcel, Cille . Love the dog with a cool sweater and the foliage bear, just adorable. Thanks so much for the pattern info. I might try it. I'm addicted to the hand warmers patterns, in particular the one from Kathy C. I have used that stitch to knit beanies as well. Happy December!!
