Happy Leap Day – Green Bunny Blanket is done!

Green Blanket Buddy done!

A little more than a week before K returns to work and I got the green blanket buddy done! And in February as well. I guess it’s kind of fitting that a bunny project would be finished on leap day.

Another project done for year of wonders!

I was going to post last night about my awesome packages waiting for me when I got home, but after spending 1/2 hour getting hung up on by the insurance co’s IVR while trying to make a claim for my car I kind of ran out of blogging energy.

Squee! Loopy Ewe AND Knit Picks packages on the same day!

I’m not sure what I’ll do with these goodies: Malabrigo Lace Yarn in Cypress and Mariposa.

Malabrigo - Mariposa

Of course, Little Loopy is hanging out with frank. Jesse wanted to keep him, but I said Nope, he’s mine! 🙂

Got a little Loopy in the mail

And, my Knit Picks package contained my Options set I’ve been lusting after for months… I bought some extra cables and two sizes of the Harmony tips. Can’t wait to use them on a new project.

I also bought some Cotlin to use for my washcloth project in Year of Wonders. Not sure what I’ll do with my Merino or Wool of the ndes. The Navy Wool of the Andes — yes, I did buy some yarn that wasn’t green — will be for one of the felting projects in the book, just haven’t gotten to deciding yet.

This awesome sock creature was a present my mom made me for my birthday. His sister creature is currently hiding. I’ll post her photo when she comes out from hiding.

Frank is mine!!!!!

Frank - Flummeries


“Frank is an other-worldly escapee of Erik’s Menagerie made of kermit green fleece and celestial fabric. He requires no oxygen or food, but does enjoy spice of all types. Quite often when he appears to be staring off into space he’s merely searching for the nearest sandbox to play in. He’s really very friendly, low maintenance and well shaped.

He’s approx. 8″ w x 10″ h”

The kids love the DVD player, of course. Too bad they don’t get to watch movies unless we’re driving for at least 30 minutes.
