FOs! Who wants some FOs?

It's Spring! This winter is confusing the hell out of me... But I don't care, it's 70 degrees out!
Anyway. I'm still working on the finishing touches of all sorts of forgotten projects. Here's 2:

1. the Teddy Bear sweater and hat (ta da!)
I went all over town to find toggle buttons. And I found them at the place I should've gone to first: M&J Trimmings. Ms. Sassy recently described the euphoria induced by going to this amazing store. I had never been, and all I can say is: whoa Nelly is right! .
(Can you see I snuck in the 2 fronts of Rapunzel? I've started the back too.)

2. my step-mother's Christmas '04 gift!
Pattern specs:
Pattern by Phildar (purchased by my step-mother, she put post-its on the pages she liked. This was her #1 choice). No link, this was a magazine from 4-5 years ago, and I can't find it online.
Yarn: 2 skeins of black Manos del Uruguay, 7 (?) skeins of burgundy Koigu, purchased at Purl. Ball bands long lost.
Needles: 10 (or maybe 10.5, I can't remember) for the Manos, and 3 for the Koigu. (Now do you understand why it took me forever to knit those sleeves?!)
Zipper: Zipperstop. Only the best for my step-mother.

Now excuse me, I am want to get away from this computer and go outside! Or to the Point, which is the next best thing.
