This was a cute little project for the eldest of my younger brothers, who turned 23 a couple weeks ago. I have a disease that prevents me from getting birthday, anniversary, and any other time-sensitive items and cards in the mail before the recipient's big day, so I mailed it about five days late and he got it just this last Wednesday. He said (and I quote), "Oh my god. This Totoro is mind-numbingly amazing."

We used to watch My Neighbor Totoro all the flippin' time when we were young and I kept stumbling upon this pattern in my queue each time I went through to purge it (I do that a lot. I never gets any shorter than five pages :/). I told him I have a pattern (maybe even two!) for the big Totoro that he might could expect for Christmas. I just have to find my grey yarn. He's super excited. I mentioned he's 23, right? :)

I have three knitting goals this weekend: design and knit a new cabled phone cozy for my super awesome new phone, begin my grandma's beautiful scarf (before winter hits!), and SEAM PACIFIC COAST. It will happen, I swear. I also have a lot of grading and Greek,'s going to be a busy weekend.

I'm also due for a Style Saturday post since I was out of town last weekend and didn't do it. It will be much better this time, I swear.

Go see more FOs on Tami's Blog!


  1. Aw! Totoro <3 I love it! And it's OK...I'm almost 28 and I would have been bouncing up and down too if I got a mini Totoro.
