Toadstool Rattle

How cute is this little guy? He jingles too.

Toadstool Baby Rattle

Not the quietest knitting project, since you insert the bell after the cap but before knitting the stem. But I had a great time picking out mushroom-y colors and then having Bella help me ball them up (a breeze with my swift/winder).

I was going to do duplicate-stitch spots on the top, but then I wasn't sure how to start/stop the thread so that a baby wouldn't be able to snag it and pull it out.

I also finished this gorgeous little thing.

Woolly Nest

It's completely out of season, but so pretty. A little felted nest and needle-felted robin eggs. Sooooo cute.

Today I'm home sick with The Crud that is going around work. Brent convinced me that staying home really does everyone a favor, which is what I tell everyone else but never do myself. It is certainly weird here, staying home without Bella. So far, it has been quite expensive, since Christmas shopping is pretty fun in your pajamas from the couch. I also googled best bunny pellets and ended up buying a new 2-level bunny condo. Whoops. Maybe I should step away from the computer now.
