P.S. I could have gone back to the merchant but why should the store owner take responsibility.

This is my new version (new sizing anyway) the style is already finalized for the rest of the garment. This sample is knit in Sirdar, Country Style from my stash.
Finished my stretch socks for MommaBear and Bamboo socks for PoppaBear. Oh yeah, I have another pair on the go. What else is new? Nothing.
Bye Bye for now MommaBearKnits on and on into the night. I love visitors to my blog and I encourage comments-----makes me feel good!

I am working on two pairs at the same time. I could not resist as I have two new yarns (new to me anyway) and I could not use one and leave the other behind. The grey pair are knit in "SRK On Your Toes Bamboo" and the pink ones are "Patons Stretch Socks" (41% Cotton, 39% Wool, 13% Nylon and 7% Elastic.) It seems to be real stretchy, hope it washes well. Oh yeah, I have started another sample of my hoodie (Huggy Bear) in Cabin Fever Cotton Tweed DK. I hope Deb will take this one on as part of my next project.
Sitting here in Lake Country, It is raining outside, it is Sunday afternoon so what else is there to do but knit. I cannot think of another thing to do today.

And another grandma. What a lucky little Sadira.
Great Day, No Knitting, but MommaBear was thrilled with the compliments for the gifts. Everyone was very generous and all the gifts were totally cool.

Coming up next Saturday I am going to a baby shower. How lucky is that baby going to be. I will be proud to present her mom with plenty of knitted stuff. Sadie (baby's name) will have lots of love and attention. She has seven great-aunts just on her one gramma's side and who knows how many on the other side. Her gramma and plenty of other relatives will be there for her. Even her Great Grandma will be a part of the day. How good is that?
Chocolate wanted to show everyone that he now has socks to match his new cardigan. He has volunteered to be a spokesman for MommaBear and her patterns. We will see how that works.
PoppaBear raked the area under our bird feeder and deposited them in the back area of the yard, not expecting anything other than perhaps a little greenery - or not! Now we have this wonderful little collection of sunflowers. How neat is that. I don't expect that they will mature to bear seeds but they are pretty none the less.
Soon I will have more projects to display. Keep checking on my blog and I will keep posting.
Until the next time
MommaBearKnits and she is counting the days to Freedom 65.

Left: More basics from the #'s
Above: Diamond and Ridges, suitable for toddler
Left: Love it but pattern too deep for all the sizes, put on back burner for a possible 2-10 project.
HELP ME! I need a mentor before I have to add on a storage room for the knitted garments and stash. I want to get the help I need before January 2009 or all is lost. Then I will be retired with more time,
Oh I forgot to mention that the Baby "K" obsession is just a very small part of my UFO's.
