Although I shouldn't be starting anything new...I couldn't help myself...and I started a sock monkey for Girl-child using only leftovers (per her request):
The feet are from a favorite pair of socks that she actually wore out, the blue is from my recently finished Poseidons and the little guy's shirt is going to be in the Franklin's Panopticon colorway - the little ball on the right.
And did you hear? The most challenged book of 2008, And Tango Makes Three, has become a real story. The Bremerhaven zoo has some gay penguins who "adopted" an abandoned egg and they are now rearing the chick as their own.
