Finished Object Update

Mr. Hedgie is finally finished! I had planned on embroidering his eyes and nose but it looked horrible so I bought some buttons. Don't worry he's mine he's not going into the hands of a baby so there's no danger of a little one swallowing them. Darn, but this little guy was difficult to capture with a decent photo but I finally managed it.

Pattern: Huggable Hedgehog by Fiber Trends
Yarn: Body with Lamb's Pride Worsted 85% Wool/15% Mohair 1 skein Sandy Heather
Tips of Paws with 10 yards of unknown - Molly at Knitters Underground gave it to
me Thanks Molly)
Fur with Park by FFF 2 1/2 balls color code 37
Stuffing: Standard issue poly fiberfill

I cast on for another pair of socks because I finished these:

Pattern: Wendy's Generic Toe Up Feather and Fan Socks by Wendy D. Johnson (aka Wendy Knits)

Needles: Chiao Goo Bamboo dpns size 1 6 inch (broke one and had to get them replaced)
August 12 - September 9

The only football I kept up with over the weekend were two games the first of course was the Penn State Nittany Lions at Notre Dame. Let's move on shall we. The second game was the Denver Broncos at the St Louis Rams. Again - moving on. OK OK yes my team lost. Yes the Denver Bronco offense embarrassed themselves. If you didn't see the Bronco game and just look at the score you'll think the Broncos were a lot better than they were. Don't let it fool you - the Rams offense wasn't very good either but at least they didn't turn the ball over on fumbles and interceptions the way the Broncos did. In a nutshell it was an ugly football game on both sides of the ball.

Tomorrow is of course September 11th and the 5th year anniversary. A time for reflection probably for most of us, myself included. I'm always sad on September 11th but the day also reminds me to live each day to the fullest. Take care everyone.

Handsome Hedgie! Superb socks! Way to knit some awesome-lookin' stuff, lady! :-)

I feel bad for my mother -- today's her birthday, now forever the day before Sept. 11. (At least it's not on the same day....) And of course she was a fourth-grade teacher in Shanksville (site of United Flight 93), so Sept. 11 is always fraught with emotion for her.

I agree -- carpe diem. We should never forget the past, but I hope this fifth anniversary helps us to move on a bit more and not dwell on the sadness and what was lost. We can gain by doing what you said -- remembering to live each day to the fullest! :-)
