This post was originally meant for yesterday, but in the chaos of moving out of my residence hall, not having internet when I went to study for my last final, having a (minor) fire in the building during my final, and the four hour drive home, I was unable to post per usual on Wednesday and join the yarn along. Oh well; worse things have happened.
So as you know I've been without my stash (but we were reunited last night and it was GREAT), so when I finished as much of Gromit as I could and completed Bear in a Jif for my baby box, I picked up the Buff colored Red Heart yarn that was leftover from Gromit and began making a hippo. Not just any hippo, Hippo Hippo Hippo. I had nothing particular in mind when I began this project, just that I needed to make something or I was going to explode, so when I told my Bible Study leader about it I offered it to her. "It can be your Slovenia Hippo!" I said (as I will be in Chicago with Campus Crusade, she will be going to Slovenia with Cru). She said okay, and then it became crunch time. I was just leisurely making the hippo, but then She was leaving the next day at four so I needed to complete it quickly. Luckily I already had a lot of it completed (even though it was not a long project at all) and my sister was willing to stay up and Skype with me while I finished him.

Until next time!
