Projects from the Past
I have refrained from starting any new projects since I'm leaving on a trip 9/8, so here is a project I enjoyed making in the past. During my sister's mad beanie baby addiction period, I acquired a few myself, and this squirrel was one. The sweater is New Zealand wool, knit from the top down, and while visiting my other sister in Wisconsin, I acquired the cheesehead.
He is posing on my Homespun poncho. Hmm, I have one skein left! I wonder if I can make the minisweater with it?
I have acquired a few acorns as in the picture. Acorns fascinate me to no end. They star in My Neighbor Totoro, one of my favorite movies ever, and they don't grow in Hawaii. I like to visit the Mainland in the fall when there are lots of acorns in all shapes and sizes.
