I’ve been a bit obsessed with the idea of knitting teeth lately—party because I recently read The Story of My Teeth, and partly because twice a day I’m wrangling my toddlers into the bathroom for a brushing. There’s something a vaguely easter-like about a tooth, so I decided to make some knitted teeth and toothbrushes to go in my kids’ baskets this year.
They weren’t the biggest hit ever, but they were not reviled. I’m calling it a win! And after I showed my 3-year-old that the brush could brush his tooth friend, he gave it a try himself for a few seconds, which totally melted my heart.
No pattern for these, at least for now. It was fun to knit something just for fun!
