Toys, Toys, Toys!
This is Franklin. Ain't he cute?
Okay, not a toy, but I finally got a pic of my MIL2B in her 76 stitches hat, made for her for Christmas.
The colors are close to life. You can really see all the beauty of the Lone Star in the picture. Soft, fuzzy halo, gorgeous color variegation.
Not a great picture, but it shows the cute little ridge in the hat.
And finally, by special request of The Boy, the snake from Jess Hutchinson's book, Unusual Toys for You to Knit and Enjoy
He wanted it loooooong and he selected the colors from my many oddball skeins. This is on Sunday night. Last night I measured it at 23" and I still have 18 rounds and the head to complete!
And I leave you with a couch potato kitty shot -- too funny! We did not do anything to Tomi (The Boy's mom's cat) to get him into this position; apparently he finds this comfortable. :)
