Close Encounters Of A Finished Kind

First off, here's the shawl. Eight hundred yards of yarn. I wish the shawl was bigger, actually. I must have broad shoulders because this feels a little small to me. If I were to do it again (and I might...I loved the pattern), I would add more rows.

Love the colors!

And, just in time for the baby shower tomorrow, here's Harriet the Hippo. She's pretty cute, though I think she would be cuter with safety eyes. But safety eyes are a no-no for babies. She has a cute little tail that you can't see here.

I was an idiot and deleted this by accident but Oh, Brother said:

Just remember, shawls will get you through times of no hippos better than hippos will get you through times of no shawls. (Or is it the other way around?)

Set up an Etsy account and sell dem hippos (or should it be "hippoes"?)--way cute.

Wow, that shawl is beautiful. And so is Harriet. I agree that you should sell them on Etsy - far less talented artists do!
