Thanks for everyone’s sweet comments. Hope I didn’t sound like a whiner. I did get to relax and we have had some better days, although the boys are still being a challenge. The weather is one of the biggest problems. Little Man just needs to get outside, and the weather is not cooperating. We had snow today of all things….cruel, cruel, cruel!

Knittybaby’s bear doesn’t care. He has arms, legs and ears now, so nothing else can get him in a bad mood:

Pattern: Bedfellows Bear, from “Stitch and Bitch Crochet.”

Guage: no idea

Yarn: Wool of the Andes, Lamb’s Pride Bulky, Cascade’s super bulky stuff (the name escapes me now).

Notes: my first crochet project, ever! I’m quite proud, despite the excessively long legs and arms. He’s still cute and Knittybaby digs him.

Next: My birthday gift from the Skeptic and the boys. Carders!!!

I’m so thrilled about these. I need to put them together yet and then I’ll get back to that crazy mixed bag of colors I’ve got to spin up.

SP10 came through with an awesome birthday package!

These were just half the packages. Everything was so cute and wrapped so nicely with little notes. Once I opened it all up, I had this:

Chocolate, coffee, candy, one of my favorite yarns, and a notebook. Can I be more lucky? (Notice the little hand reaching for that bunny?) The coffee is so good, and perfect for a rainy, dreary week like this has been. And of course chocolate is always a great pick-me-up.

Thank you to my SP10!!! You really added some smiles to our house that day!

Next up, Little Man’s birthday. There’s a reason I’m still up this hour of the night! I’ve got until Saturday to get this done.

Hope to see all of you locals at the Harlot tomorrow!

  1. The bear is adorable. The legs and arms are the perfect huggable length.

    Such nice presents, you must have been a very good girl this year.

  2. What a great SP!! And the bear is cute. 🙂

    Hey, did I remember to invite you to dinner?! 4:30 pm at Pad Thai Grand Cafe – drop me an email before 2:30 if you can make it… I think we have 15 people so far…

  3. That bear turned out so great!! I can’t believe it’s your first crochet project. I may have to try one of those super cute little animals myself.
