well...sorta ;)
Hug by Sarah Pasternak
Jo-Ann's Sumptuous in Teal 1.75 skeins for both projects
US 15 dpns

I've always wanted to knit this since it first came out. Sorry no posed pictures...I would have behaved very badly I know this.. It's a pretty quick knit too.

Gotta have a hat too...
Chunky cable hat
Cable & Rib hat by Veronica Machak
Same yarn as above and using US 15 circular. Mostly knit continental style too :) I was practicing the Norwegian Purl to help with my cabling. Tightens up the sts after the cable sts. Continental style was easier with the super bulky yarn...still working on worsted yarns...

Hanging out together waiting to be shipped to my sister-in-law for her birthday. Didn't finish them in time for Christmas, good thing her birthday is in January ;) She's allergic to wool...this yarn was a great substitute. Hmm maybe I should have called it a Sumptuous hug... ;)

Your hug is so cute! I knit half of one in a light pink yarn, and it just kinda creeped me out. (It was toys in horror movies creepy) I couldn't finish it.

Two thumbs up! Happy birthday to your sister-in-law!

That scarf is too darn funny! I like the hat too. It reminds me of the Dean Street hat that I made for my son.

That's such a cute concept for the scarf! I followed your link and find the petrified looking baby in the pattern photo a little too humorous. I'll have to keep that pattern in mind for my niece.
