Early in the fall I remembered that I wanted to knit Lucy a Sheldon. I thought about taking it on our cruise so it would be done for her birthday the next week, but decided it'd be too much hassle with different colours and a long pattern. Not sure exactly when I started it, but I was pleased at how quickly it was coming along. Until I got to the part where it says to install the safety eyes. I had searched this town a while ago for safety eyes for a pair of owl mittens, to no avail. Lucy has a large bead stash now, so I went shopping in her bead box.
