A bit of knitting and life in general....

I just finished what I think might be the cutest knitted thing ever....

He still needs eyes and a nose, but he's almost ready to be sent off to my mom for her birthday. He's from a pattern by Fibertrends which I picked up at Isle Knits.

Here are some prefelting pictures...

I've also made some progress on the Diagonal Triangle Tank. This picture doesn't even come close to doing justice to the gorgeousness of the yarn.

And, in non-knitting news, I got engaged last month. I just got the ring yesterday (it was being resized) and here is a picture I took today.

Yesterday was my last day at work for the summer, I'll be here in Hawaii until next Friday getting to play tourist and have some fun before school starts.

Thursday was my last Aloha Knitters Meet-up for the summer. I just want to say thanks to all the wonderful ladies I've met this summer. It was great to get out and knit and hang out with people. I will miss our Thursdays (not to mention the Lemon-Spinach Crepes). And, and extra big thanks to Barb, who gave me these gorgeous earrings she made. I'll be wearing them tonight at Casino Night.

That hedgehog is the cutest thing. Last time I was at Isle Knits, I resisted getting that pattern, and now I'm sorry I did! Glad you liked the earrings. Your ring is beautiful. It was fun knitting with you and hope you'll come back in the future. Good luck to you!

Hey! Hope you landed on your feet back on the mainland, and aren't too overwhelmed with the return to school, etc. We miss you and hope you're laying the groundwork to return to us next summer!

The hedgehog is adorable.
