Another Useful Object

Isn't this funny? It just looks like a toy. It's really a door stop - I filled it with unpopped popcorn to make it heavy. My new knitting craze has yielded seven snowmen and one black cat. Next I'm going to try making a hat for Larry. :>}

Ladydi,you have turned the table, I have picked up my knitting needles :o) picked up some lovely yarn at Tuesday's...and will make a particular shawl out of it...I finally got it unwound into a ball...I have a winder but I don't like the results from using it..I do better by hand and I'm quicker :o) Ginny

I love the doorstop, Diana! It's very cute! :) Good luck with the hat for Larry. I'm sure it will turn out great.

Love the doorstop. I have never thought of using popcorn for filling before. Will keep it in mind.
(Don't let anyone put it in the mocrowave though!)

Love those two cats sitting side by side and yes knitting is addictive as patchwork, you are going to have a nice collection going.
I did have to laugh about the comment before oh yeah not a good idea to microwave Mr Cat.
