More bears!

What's even better than getting sales? Finding pics of my knitted bears in the hands of their kids! These are in South Africa (the pastel bear) and Namibia (the one with the "mittens").

Cold in Cleveland

Here's something I'm going to have to get used to - waking up to a scene like this. It did not look like this last night; we had some icy flurries, but nothing resembling the winter wonderland/driving nightmare of this morning. And it's only November 6th! Still, it's a good day for hunkering down and catching up on my knitting.

The yoke sweater, finally

Here's the promised picture of my yoke sweater, finally! Warm, comfy, pretty - that sums it up. I used two balls of Lion Brand Fishermen's Wool and one of Ella Rae Classic Sand Art in "Grey, Charcoal, Beige"; the style is traditional, using Elizabeth Zimmermann's yoke sweater percentage system (EPS, for you knitters), except instead of the usual Fair Isle yoke pattern I used a variegated yarn (the Ella Rae). I'm in love with this sweater and don't want to take it off - ever!
Hastily getting ready for the craft sale at Jewel Heart Cleveland as well...
