something amazing has happened

I finished a project. Well actually two! Anyone who checks in here semi-regularly will notice that I start a lot of projects... and finish not so many.

But I actually have a couple done :)

I started a little squishy ball from "knitted Toys" by Zoe Mellor in July. I knit 3 of the little pieces and then put it down. In 2 afternoons I knit the other 3 and sewed it together. Not sure why it took me so long to get back to this one. Nice easyish knit (had to keep track of shaping the pieces). I used some Cascade D'oro (discontinued 50/50 wool alpaca) and Valley Yarns Stockbridge (Webs almost identical yarn - yarn.com). I needed less than 25% of a ball of each color.

I aslo finished my mom's poncho from a couple posts ago. Don't have a new photo yet though :)
