Not a knitting post, but on the continuum of handcrafted artwork.

This was a Christmas gift for Julian from Rebecca, our former neighbor. She brought it along when we had a playdate with Julian and her kids, Nathanial and Lily. Isn't it super cool? It's a Poo-Goo. She used to sell these in the very cool bookstores and toystores in town (and I will bet many of the city's hipper than thou scenesters vowed that when they had children, these would be the only stuffed toys they would let their children play with), but stopped because, well, motherhood is time consuming and she found that she was spending more money/time making these than she was making selling these. I am lucky to have one and feel honored that she gave us this gift.

Julian's Scarf

This was the tird and final scarf I made for the holidays, so, of course, I post it's photo first.

It is made with mohair scraps.

I will post its story, along with the greater story of the role of the mohair scarf in my knitting life, when I get around to posting pictures of the other, larger mohair scarves I have made.

For now, you will have to make do with this one lonely picture (because I apparently failed to upload the entire contents of the flash car to this computer and I am too cranky to do so now).

I knit scarves for the whole family this past christmas.

I am furiously finishing up some UFOs from the past year.

I am going through my stash and will be giving away yarn in the next few weeks.

I will be posting photos of the scarves, the soon to be finished objects, and the yarn in a few days.

That is all.
