And there is a 6-striping sock and fiber and a pattern to go with it all by our own FickleKnitter, Michelle Miller. The sheer awesomeness hurts!

Celebrating our listeners who have joined the CogKnitive 25 – , 50 –, and 75 – Bear Clubs for MBP. You can see who they all are right here. Great work!

STOP THE PRESSES! The ladies at 2KnitLitChicks are running a CAL/KAL for Mother Bear project! OF COURSE YOU CAN USE YOUR BEARS FOR THEIR CONTESTS AS WELL AS MINE! The goal is to get more bears made, not to chase you all around to make your prove something...

What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:

Still in Progress:

My Hitchin' a Ride Shawl in crochet, for the Rav Games continues to be my popcorn crochet when I need to keep my hands busy.

The Holly Holiday Stocking for my twin. Fair Isle knitting, how I love thee...
Annies Woolens--great for holiday knitting kits and patterns!


My  Noro Kuryon vest.well, okay, it is on time-out.

The endless Petal Shawlette. Really should be hibernating.... Or ripped out!
Traveling Woman --3rd repeat of Chart A...still
The Pivot Shawl by FickleKnitter (Michelle Miller)...5 repeats of ten done on the body as I record this!

Dizzy Blondes:

BeeMiceElf fiber in SWM in a luscious dark cherry semi-solid. Stalled because of the extreme heat at home right now.

Mindfulness 101: Being in the present as a personal discipline

Something I Really Like: Reduced phone costs by simpler technology. VMA v. CDMA phones and Verizon v. Smart Talk.

Put A  Lid On It: Syrups and concentrates. For high summer.
