finally a FO

here's a little peep I made for an easter basket. I'm still thinking about putting feet on it. Obviously it's for DD.. I have 2 more to make for my kids, but I'm debating about making some as gifts... they're a quick knit and I think cute too!

Pattern: Easter Peep
Yarn: KnitPicks Crayon, Lily Sugar and Cream
Colors: Pink, Hot Orange
Needle Size: 5
Stuffing: various wool lint from spinning or yarn cuttings

On another knitting note, mom's felted slippers are too big. So back to the washing machine they go. DH took them to her today, she tried them on and returned them. So I'll put them through again this weekend. Guess they'll be Easter slippers after all.

My aunt is home from the hospital after her surgery. The prognosis is good. They feel as though they got all the cancer. She has a couple of blood clots in her lungs right now, but is on blood thinners and they expect them to dissolve within a month or so. Continued prayers are appreciated.

On a very sad note, a dear friend's DIL (who is only 40) died in her sleep just Wednesday evening. I don't have any of the details, but I'm sure it was a shock to the family.

OK... off to bed I go (I was there before, but awoke at midnight to do some schoolwork then stayed up listening to old CAST ON podcasts and knit up the little chick!)

Your peep for your daughter is so cute! I don't think 12, 15 and 20 year old boys would like one of those in their Easter baskets...I may just have to make one for myself!

So sorry to hear about your friends DIL. I hope they are coping as well as can be expected... And I'm glad you Aunt is improving. She is in my prayers...
