19 Days since my last Post, That is bad!!!

I have been in a hiatus for the last two plus weeks.  But, Deb don't worry, I am still knitting, and trying to write this pattern out so that you can get through it.  That is not easy, but I am now on the home stretch.

As always it is real easy to knit out of your head, but making it a written out pattern is the challenge.  But, MommaBear can do it if you push her hard enough, right Deb?
I have also been knitting socks, socks, socks.  Just because I needed a break.  Over the last two weeks my Mother in Law has been in a poor state of health, understandable as she is approaching her 98th Birthday.  But, she is pretty tough and seems to be improving.  She is a resident in LeisureWorld Orillia and they are very good to her.  PoppaBear is the main family caregiver and it has been stressful for him as he is in constant pain with a bad back, knees, hips and bad arthritis.  Getting old is not always fun.  But MommaBearKnits on into the night and it gives her coping capabilites.

Progress Report

First and foremost,  Hoodie Progress

I have written the pattern to the top of the hood.  So, it won't take long to knit the hood.  The neckline is done and I am right at it.

Of course, I also knit several hats since the last posting.

I, actually worked on four and finished three of them, but one was tried on by my granddaughter, Sammie, while she was visiting this weekend and surprise, surprise, it went home to Washago, no picture, but a very warm head will be going on the school bus tomorrow morning.  Now I have one more to finish, and of course more to start.

While I was visiting http://cabinfeverknittingdesigns.blogspot.com/ I saw that Deb was bragging, or, venting  about her supply of needles.  Since she decided to show you hers, I decided to show you mine. 

MommaBearKnits forever.

I believe that a picutre is worth a thousand words.  Hope so, here is my progress report.  Now I am casting on the stitches for the Left Front Panel.  Keep on Knitting, I will.
