Chichi

Tanya has created the CUTEST pattern for a little felted pig. I bought the pattern last night and immediately cast on. So, my Chichi won't be pink but hey, not all pigs are ya know? The best part of the pattern (besides ending up with an adorable stuffed pig, I mean) is that she's donating part of the proceeds to Heifer International. She's even thinking of making more Heifer animals. I'm really excited.



My Chichi so far. I think I'll be able to complete the parts tonight. Tomorrow at the latest. Friday, I'll go up to Mom's to felt him.

Mary bought some STR in Fire on the Mountain colorway so I had to post an in progress picture to show how beautifully it's working up.



Before I go snuggle with the cats (they're being very needy because of the rain and my weekend trip I believe), I have one more picture to share.



That's what happens EVERY time I wash dishes. I just hope that maybe one day I learn to wash dishes without getting my shirt wet. I'm not holding my breath though.

Thanks-I have no self control & started swatching-its really, really soft-like Briar Rose Fibers-only about 15 bucks cheaper!

I love seeing your Chichi parts :) Cant wait to see how it felts up.

And yeah, I have the same problem when I wash dishes so don't feel bad.

Thanks for posting the picture of the sock. I'll have you know that I bought that colorway after seeing the wound ball of yarn on your blog -- I gasped when I saw those colors, and decided I had to have them, so, I blame YOU for that purchase! ;-) I'm glad to see that it knits up so pretty, too, but that's no surprise.

Oh, and I always get my shirt wet when I wash my face in the morning, if that makes you feel any better....

Can't wait to see your finished piggie!
