The last few weeks have been a bit crazy, but good. I went on an excellent (and free!) trip to Paris...

And then spent a relaxing week skiing (translate: picking up small children and carrying them around) with my family.

Nothing earth-shattering to report on the knitting front, but I thought I'd post some pictures of my latest finish - a baby gift for a friend. She doesn't know if she is having a boy or a girl, so I went with gender-neutral green :)

I'm not sure if I'm completely satisifed with how he came out - I knit him with bulkier yarn and larger needles than the pattern called for because I wanted a bigger toy. Regardless, I think he's very huggable, and the yarn is very soft.
Yesterday I went to my parents' house to dig out some old t-shirts for a quilt. Turns out that my mother has been saving them since I was very small (with what goal in mind, I'm not sure) and I have enough t-shirts to make several quite large quilts. I suppose there are worse problems to have - now I have to pick my favorites!
Thanks to all have been reading and commenting - it's nice to know there are people out there!
