Ta-dahhhhhh! (Are you ready to meet Pixie Moon?)

I've had so much fun with this wonderful pattern. I really can't tell you how satisfying it has been to bring Pixie Moon to life from just a few balls of yarn. 
So in my favourite Ta-dah to date, I'd like to invite you to meet Pixie. 

Pixie's favourite colour is blue, 
she loves Marmite on toast 
and to sit around chatting into the early hours. 
She also has a fondness for Hexipuffs and is often seen snuggling one (or more).  

So far I've only made her boxer shorts - socks and a top will be on the needles this weekend

Oh, and a 'quick and dirty' poncho from scrap yarn.  
(This will move on to someone else once Pixie's clothes are made - she deserves better.) 

I could write about this little lady all day, but I have two of my favourite people arriving this weekend and far too much to do around the house. If you would care to read more about the pattern and the process, there is a day-by-day commentary on my project notes *blush*. 
Find more FOs at Tami's
I have LOTS of other things to be getting on with but the only other Finished Object was a little crochet Remembrance Poppy from a pattern published by a friend this week. For some reason I can't add any links at the moment, but you can find it and link to the free pattern on my Ravelry page.  

Edited: In the Pixie excitement, I forgot to show you the other exciting thing that happened this week. Look what was in Let's Knit magazine....

Hoping you had as much fun and excitement this week x
