I have finished Sheldon :) Well mostly anyway, he still needs some little black eyes, but other than that he is all done. I used the recommended yarn, and some mystery plastic needles that I think are 3.00mm but to be honest I am not sure. His head turned out a little lumpy (I forgot to stuff it early enough and it was hard to fit through a small hole) but other than that he's great.

I have the baby bib I made in class the other day soaking in the sink. Some of the stitches are a little wonky so I am hoping that the water will even it all out. With the rest of the yarn from the skein, which was Knit Picks Shine Sport in Cherry is being turned into the boy booties from Natural Knits for Babies and Moms. I am really hoping that I will have enough yarn with what is left, cuz I don't have another ball!

In fieldwork news, I am pretty sure that I will be going to Pictou. For those of you not from Nova Scotia, that's about 1 hour and 45 minutes from Halifax. It's about 30 minutes from my parents so, I can commute every day from my parents and come home to Halifax on the weekends. Not too shabby. Now all I have to do is find a car...

Oh, Sheldon is too cute! You are right, knitted pets surely will find a home. If not, you can have him living in your car for company when commuting.
Good luck with the Knitpicks Shine, hopefully you will be able to stretch it long enough for the second booty.
