Busy Times and an alien

We are getting back into the swing of things after Christmas break.  We had a great trip to California where we spent time with my entire family.  But now, we are all back at school and work.  The days just fly by.

When we got home from our trip, we didn’t have much time before school started again.  One of the things we had to do was to create an alien for Davey’s class.

This was so much fun.   We had a great time planning it.  Davey art directed all the way through and helped me build him.

I decided to put my knitting skills to work.  I used the Rebecca Danger Monster Chunk pattern to make the body.  (I used a bulky cotton that I had.)  We used ping pong balls for the feet.  The pipe cleaners worked great for legs and antenna.  Then I glued together several buttons and painted them for his ears (I guess those are ears?!).  Davey helped me design his felt face.

We had a great time with him.

I’ve not been knitting much the past few days.  I have a “chicken coat” started which was requested from a friend.  I’m hoping for a picture of the chicken modeling the coat, so I need to get it finished!  I made some progress on “Hulda Holly” on our drive to and from California.  I have hopes of finishing it this year in time to enter it in the fair!  That’s my goal which I hope will drive me to finish.

Happy Weekend!
