little surprise, fun quiz

Hello everyone! I've been rather quiet on this KAL and it's time for me to do better. Do you all remember when I asked if anyone would like a little gifty for a Random Event back in March? (I think it was March...) Anyway, I actually got the little gifties made and I want to send them out to you. If you've sent me your address already, you don't need to do it again--I still have them (except for Kim who moved). But if any of you other lovely ladies would like to send me your address, I'll be mailing things out on Thursday. Lillian had this fun quiz on her blog--I've grabbed it and I present for your pleasure: What Kind of Yarn Are You? Me? I'm merino wool, but I already knew that by looking in my stash closet. :)

What kind of yarn are you?

You are Merino Wool.You are very easygoing and sweet. People like to keep you close because you are so softhearted. You love to be comfortable and warm from your head to your toes.
Take this quiz!

I haven't actually done any knitting on my Pea Pod yet. I got side tracked with what I'll call the "String Bean" baby sweater that I was making and the Presto Chango pattern that I sent to Jimmy Beans Wool for their pattern contest. If any of you haven't yet seen it, here it is. You can get the pattern on the Jimmy Beans website, if you'd like.

I tried it on my PeeWee just for fun, but I made it for Kristen's new sweet baby boy. I'm currently working on another one in size 24 months that should fit me girl a little better.

Finished Pea Pod for my Sweet Pea!

I finally got around to the finishing! It fits great and feels wonderful on her this cool Minnesota May evening.

Now I just need to make some booties to match, I'm not sure about the hat... I'm just happy to have another finished object! Yay!

Next I should finish her next striped hoodie...

Happy knitting,
