Polar Bears and Penguins

I started my week off in one of the best ways possible; as a penguin.

A coworker and I spent the morning dancing in downtown Evanston, bringing smiles to the sleepy faces of commuters.  It was so much fun.  Also, check out that penguin costume.  Guess where I got that?  I totally made it. There are 3 large buttons going down the front, discrete slits in the sleeves for slipping my hands through, an adorable little tail, and get this: pockets.  It totally rocks my world.

I finally completed the Increase square for the Tech Square Afghan.

I am in love with that blue!  June, from Mosaic Yarn Studio, picked it out for me.  It compliments the darker red and salmon wonderfully.  I kind of want to pick up a bunch of the blue and start making things.  All manner of things.  Dresses and sweaters and socks and bloomers.

It has been a very inspirational week.  I’ve almost finished my latest project, which was an ingenious design for using up the big box (about a 10 gallon box) of random odds and ends of yarn that I didn’t want to throw away but didn’t know what to do with.  The downside to this project is that reproducing and writing the pattern may prove difficult.  I suppose the One-Of-A-Kind creations that result will just end up on ETSY.
