Little Man's Hedgehog

I checked out Family Circle Easy Toys from the library. In my opinion, most of the patterns were not easy. However, this hedgehog was so easy that I made the toy in one night. It's adorable and I hope to get three toys from the one ball of fuzzy yarn and one ball of worsted beige.

Red Hat and Scary Guy in Momo's Room

I recently fell in love with this yarn at my local yarn store. I bought 5 balls of it. One in shrimp, one in green, one blue and two in red. Its width is variegated as is the color. It's pretty cool to work with. Here's the hat I made with red and leftover green.

I purchased a glass head to model my hats. I left it on my dresser and forgot about it. Then the Little Man came to my house one afternoon. While I was in the kitchen he ran to me and said with wide eyes,"Momo, there's a scary guy in your room!" I had no idea what he was talking about, so he grabbed my hand and took me to my room. Then he pointed at the glass head. Scary Guy. I laughed because he was with me when I bought it. I put a hat on it. After that he wasn't afraid of the scary guy.

My Little Wizard

I finally finished my house scarf. It's just in time for the new movie, too. I brought my scarf to my yarn store and the ladies there thought I did a good job. I was pretty proud. It took me about two months to make it. Now I am working on knitted presents for my family and friends. I cannot post them in case they look up my blog, although it seems nobody comes to my blog.
