Spark

Here is the finished sweater
Spark

It was a test knit and it is up (and if you check it out here you will see a certain someone)


The only mods I made was to undo the ties and make a frog closure. It makes it easier for her to close it

Spark mods

The new owner of said sweater is impatiently waiting for it to dry. =)

On my way to get milk tonight

This is what I saw. It was not the only house, just the one I could safely take a picture of. Plus I had to take radio station out of the car's memory. It is just too early for 24/7 Christmas music. Funny thing is,well besides it not even being thanksgiving yet, is that the house a few houses away from this one still has Halloween decorations up. Too early people!!!

1 Down 1 To Go

(better pictures soon)



This has got to be one of the strangest things I have bought. My son had a field trip to the Bronx Zoo. As our little group visited the gift shop I came across this little handmade notebook. It wasn't until after that I read the note card on the back.

The paper is made form elephant poo.

No lie. Here is there website.

Love the name - Mr. Ellie Pooh's Elephant Dung Paper. Even the pencil included is recycled from found pencil and hand sharpened.

(Yes you can actually see the grass that passed through the elephant in the paper. There is no smell and it is sanitized)

Progress

Well there has been some in the purple sweater. I am on my second out of a possible three. Not quite half way. This is a test knit. It is called Spark. I tested the adult version called Flint. Yes I know I don't think I showed any pictures. I think I am going to redo some of it. I get more into that when I get it.
Oh and the blue sweater well there has been progress on that too. But, it is a Christmas gift and even though the giftee knows all about it- I still want to keep it as much as a surprise as possible so expect limited pictures

Ok America

I voted. Did you?

The big bad

Hershey!! I was walking the kids to school and loved how the sun was turning the Hershey into a wolf. Yes Hershey is wearing a sweater (and yes I knitted it). She actually needs some help keeping warm when it is 40 degrees out.
