talldarkeyes, I don't like crocheting either! :) maybe because I haven't properly learned how, but I prefer to stick to knitting.

I tried crocheting many, many times and had a miserable time with gauge. I thought I would be terrible at knitting too but then I tried it and voila! no problems with maintaining the correct gauge and tension.

I have always had the same issues with crocheting. I tried to do a blanket once but instead of a rectangle I got a weird trapezoid!

I can let someone have it for the price of shipping as I am done with it. I dislike crocheting which is why I never recommend it.

I'd love to get this from you! How should I go about sending you the money for shipping? Assuming no one else has asked for it first. :0P

So, I certainly don't qualify this as a baby essential, but anyone think they can find/have a pattern to make these:  http://www.etsy.com/listing/121458276/plush-kettlebell-rattles-infant-size?ref=cat_gallery_1
