new year, old knits

So these were the toys I made the nephews for Christmas, an alien and a dinosaur (that's the toys not the nephews!). I also finished a pair of brown socks (which I've totally failed to get pictures of) and have all the pieces to a sweater (but the sleeves aren't playing nicely with the arm holes so it's in timeout until I feel like wrestling with it).

We were snowed-in in WV for more days than we had planned on being gone and I had just run out of clean socks when I finished the brown ones. I literally took them off the needles, sowed in the ends, and put them directly on my feet. If I hadn't finished them I'd have been barefoot inside those snow boots!!

I did a spinning demonstration for 1-3 grade yesterday. Favorite question (besides the apparently standard "can you spin squirrel fur?" which I seem to get every time): "Does that take batteries?" pointing to the wheel after I had just explained to them all how it works!

Snowed-in in WV? That sounds truly dreadful. :-p

I'm kidding of course. (Just in case any WVians are reading this and don't know me.)

Every time I try to comment it gets deleted. Blogger seems to be liking me today, so I'll take a chance here. The little aliens are cute, but I am partial to the dino. Nicely done - are you everyone's favorite aunt?
