My FO and WIP work for this KAL! Yay! :chhering: I made a bunny, out of less than a quarter of one skein, and 2 yards of another skein, AND I am working on a mary poppins scarf that will use the entire skein of 525 yards :-) That's a biiiiiiiiiig skein of yarn!

Pics are here!

I couldn't resist. I had to make an egg last night. It used only a small bit of a skein I found in the statsh. Thinking back, I probably used close to the same yardage of yarn scraps to stuff it as I did yarn to knit it! Now I just need to find time to make a few more (and possibly a bunny) before Sunday....

It's not the time or difficulty I'm worried about - its the stuffing! I don't have many yarn scraps left and no fiberfill, so I will have to either get creative or go to the store.

Fabric scraps! I have lots of fabric scraps! Guess I'll cast on for a bunny after work. :D

You're welcome. I did it in less than an evening, and that was before I was used to making socks! It was actually the second "sock" I ever made! I'm thinking about doing it again in wool and felting it for my new cell phone that DH bought me.

I made an egg today...it's felted now, but this is what it looked like before:



It's actually a cover for one of those shakey-egg things, you know, the little percussion instruments? I sewed it right in and was shocked that I was able to hand felt it and put it in the dryer and it wasn't damaged at all! :D
