Some of my recent things...

I have been testing a pattern for KristieMN. The Sea Monster.
A side view. It is supposed to be 'Lily' the sea monster, but... I made this one for a boy. (Being surrounded by boys sometimes it is hard to think pink...)
And a different angle. I am saving this one for her toy drive this year.
I just recently bought the Crazy Casserole Toppers from Cupcakes' Etsy store. I made the duck. I made it in acrylic. I was reading about acrylic hot pads melting (as opposed to cotton). But, if you are just using it for a lid, it might not be so bad... The next one I make I will probably use cotton for the bottom piece. I don't have that much cotton.
And, I recently ordered this online, too. In it is the Cardigan that Lisa tested for the Crochet Dude. I really want to make one. The actual sweater you see in the book and on the model is the exact one she made. It was the one that was sent to the publisher for photos etc. How cool is that!? I'm so happy for you, Lisa! Now to hurry up and finish my Central Park Hoodie, so I can start one of these!

Aren't you sweet Tina? Thanks for kudos!

The Sea Monster you tested for KristieMN is so cute. Just adorable! You did a great job!

Looks like I'm going to have to buy one of those books online the time I actually get somewhere to buy one whole knows if it'll be there.

I hope you had a great day!! I just love reading your blog all the time!

Lisa that's exactly what I thought, by the time I even get to a JoAnn's out here... And today, when I went, they didn't have one. So I'm glad I ordered it online. I hated paying almost twice w/ the shipping, but... you'd probably spend that in gas driving to the store. So... It all evens out. :P

I hope you will do well with trying to design, I think you already are off to a great start with your tea cozy line!
