I am Soooooo Sorry

I have not posted since Canada's Thanksgiving Weekend. I am still knitting and designing. Life has just taken over but I am still at it and I assure you I will be back again with pictures, comments and hopefully some fun comments about my passion and my joyofknitting.

Thanksgiving Weekend in Ontario

Jerry, Rusty (the Bugle Beagle) and me (MommaBear) took a pleasant drive in Oro Medonte today, just to see the beautiful fall colours. We live here (on the edge of Oro Medonte) and sometimes we fail to appreciate just what we have on our doorstep. Guess What! I didn't even take my knitting, just my camera. It was a great drive now we are home, having a few..... and enjoying our surroundings. Beauty!!!

Had family (Bob, Wendy, Sammi) for dinner yesterday (Sunday). It was a great meal, Ham (Turkey is not our thing), Scalloped Potatoes, Fresh Garden Picked Beets, Pineapple, Corn, and finished up with Dutch Apple Pie (Warm). We had a great visit and today we took a picture of a beautiful Fall Coloured Tree to Mary (96 years young, and she still likes the colours of fall). Unfortunatly we no longer can take her out to see the fall colours so my camera did it for her. We love you Mary.

MommaBear has just finished a week of holidays and tomorrow back to the grind.

Baby Patterns Crossing the Finish Line

I met with Deb today and showed her all my samples and we selected two sets of three to be featured in a 1-2-3 pattern. (Three levels using the same basic design). We decided to go with the (1) purple lace; (2) a similar style to the pink Baby K shown above (it will have twisted stitch collar and cuff instead of the whole body) and a (3) basic cardigan similar to the navy one below only using a k2, p2 border. This pattern will be a girly style except for the basic one. The white huggy will be on the back burner until the other two are done. I don't know if it will just be single style with perhaps socks and a hat to match or will I go the next step to make this one also a 1-2-3 pattern.
The second project will be a basic cardigan using a k1,p1 rib; a hoodie, and a very boyish overall patterned cardigan. This pattern will appeal more to the little boys even though girls like hoodies too. Life is good here in Lake Country, MommaBear will knit all winter, no hibernation for this old bear.
