I really liked working the wave pattern. The original pattern had peace signs worked in purl stitches on the ears, but he wanted a Z for his last name. I may be regretting saying I'll knit for people soon. I already have yarn for a set of fuzzy mittens.

In order to convince people that this is a bench where they can take off their winter boots, and not a table they aren't allowed to use, I made a cushion out of fabric and batting from my fabric stash.
Sometimes I worry that I'm turning into Mary Engelbreit, with all the pattern mixing. But I hate that couch, so I refuse to take it into consideration when decorating, even for things that touch it.

This is the second year I've done these. And as Sarah requested a refill and this is a Wilson version, I don't think I'm ruining any surprises. They're month at a glance calendars, with special days highlighted. If you take a slimline cd case and crank the lid around (so it's like an easel) these fit in the display side. I don't have one at home or I'd show you. Everything is done in Photoshop Elements, and then I have them printed as 5x7s. A little trimming and they're good to go. It makes a nice present for godparents.

I've only invited the people that I know are crafty, so feel free to pass this on to anyone I've missed.
