What's On My Hook/Needles/Spindle:












Still in Progress:

I broke down and started another bandana cowl, this time in Madeline Tosh worsted in the Cousteau colorway. Oh, SUCH a gorgeous dark teal!


No more work since last episode on:

My extremely well-fitted (so far) Noro Kuryon vest

And the endless Petal Shawlette.

Dizzy Blondes:

(YAWN) I am STILL working on some SW BFL by BeeMiceElf. I neeed to get down to some serious plying with my other finished singles! I amk STILL trying to hack up a lung with my typical winter respiratory problem!

Strategy: Artist's Date weekly.

I cannot look any more bears in the face, so to speak, and more reflections on being a road warrior.

Instructions from our own beloved KnittyBarb on how to turn in your bears for the Mother Bear CAL/KAL at Stitches West:
1. Limit: 5 bears per person
2. Place: Booth #941 - Ellen’s Wooly Wonders - she sells patterns for felted animals.
3. Important: bring $3 per bear for shipping bears to their final destination. No change will be available at the booth - those dropping off bears will be expected to have the money with the bears. we will have envelopes available to put money in, and bags available to group bears and $$ together, if you want to do that.
4. Tags: there will be tags available to sign and put on your bears.
