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.
