List of things to knit after thesis

I have been buried in thesis ever since I made that cute pink mouse. Here is the list of things that I want to finish/knit after all this is done:

Cable poncho from Vogue Knitting on the Go: need to knit the second panel
Alpaca cardigan: Made the original yoke pattern, so need to knit that up
Gifts for all who helped me with thesis work: toys! cake! knitted cake!
Icarus shawl OR Silver Belle. They will probably take me the same amount of time to make these.
Vest for Dad: Argyle classic
Ice Queen for Mom: for chilly california nights
Legwarmers for sister: I suppose her legs get cold in Georgia

Certificate of Excellence

One of my illustrations will be hanging in Illustrators Club annual exhibit! It's the flounder piece, you can see it on my portfolio website here. Quite exciting!

My toy knitting bug is back to get me! I am almost done with the body and the limbs of sheldon the turtle. He's going to be geeked out by me. ha ha ha!!

Also, I just purchased another knitted toys book from Indiana. I should have asked Robin the french horn player to get it for me. :)

I got the Dickensian Mice pattern sent from California. funny, it's a British design, but I ordered it from the west coast. I used Worsted weight yarn like everything else I use, and it turned out great! She's a pinkish kind, but there will be many more to come. 

The techniques used in making Kate the Cat (opens in new window) has been really helpful when it comes to sewing the arms and jogless stripes. I'm glad I made Kate, and hope that Kate won't eat Perla (the mouse in question). It is definitely recommended!

Now the plan is to make a gentleman mouse (Mr. Culpepper, Esq.) and start a cute mouse colony!

Woo hoo!

Cute, isn't she?  Her little feet are adorable!
