Work-in-Progress Wednesday 15


Well, my big work-in-progress this week was finishing up Jack's soccer ball and baseball (click links for patterns).  The soccer ball turned out so large that I had to run to the store for another bag of stuffing!  Here is the ball next to EJ's head for scale.


Now, I am working on two super secret birthday gifts.  I realized today I was making both in very similar greens, but different yarns.  Guess I was feeling extra Christmas-ey?  Or wishing for a little Spring perhaps?


Joining up with Yarn Along at Small Things & WIP Wednesday at Tami's Amis.

Epic. That's the only word for your soccer ball. It looks fabulous! Beautiful work, almost as pretty as your little model. Merry Christmas!

Oh my gosh, I'm so envious of that soccer ball---it's huuuge, and it must be so much fun to squish! :D I'm glad it's finished in time. And I love both of those super-secret-gift-greens, too---is the one on the right Impeccable in "Lush"? I have a skein of that myself. :)

love the huge football :) And I'm betting the yarn colour was just a wish for green :)

Aww that ball would've been perfect for the little boy who's Birthday party is today. He's having a football party.
