More Totoros



I'm on a mission to use up the bits of blue and gray yarn in stash. Some of the balls are pretty small and bulky weight so I'm just making them up as I go. They seem to have gotten a bit rounder around the tummy and their ears are getting bigger. I'll soon run out of roving to stuff them with. Shipping to Hawaii seems unfairly high at times. I may resort to polyfil, sigh.

Opal gave me a spinning lesson today on her Majacraft Suzie Pro. I tried this once before at the Wisconsin Sheep and Wool on a Babe. Um, let's just say I don't get it yet, lol. Opal was working on a fantastic necklace for her mom. Her cats were all in hiding. Maybe they are imaginary cats?

My boys just recently watched "My Neighbor Totoro" and my youngest loved them and their acorns. I'm going to have to knit him one. :)

If you can bring yourself to use polyfill, let me know! My friend E's aunt died recently and E dumped a bunch of stuff on me including a garbage bag of polyfill.
