WIP Wednesday & Tom's new toy

This, of course, is Tom's new toy. Now we don't have to juggle one car for three people's schedules. Yay!!

Stor Rund Dug is getting there. I love how it looks but it seems like it's going slower now with the large number of stitches to knit each round. I haven't counted them. Someone on Ravelry is making this, too, out of Cascade 220. It's a purplish color, too. How neat.

I made these bears last winter but didn't get the faces put on until today. One's head is shorter because I misread the pattern. I don't think it will matter much. I'm going to make more. I found some yarn upstairs that someone from church gave me so I'm going to make several to send to Haiti. These bad boys will be headed for Haiti this Sunday.

Still plugging away on the Jaywalkers. I must admit I'm eager to move on to another pair of socks. Still haven't decided for sure which one will be next but I will know by the time the Jays are done.

I'm almost done with the back of the baby sweater. I don't have a picture of it yet because it's just plain stockinette stitch. When I do the front, then I'll take pictures.

Picking up stitches on hood of the Adult Hooded Sweater. I'm going to like the hood on this after all. I think I have enough yarn left over to make a child's version of it.

I'll be taking the Stor Rund Dug tonight for Zach's class. When it gets too dark for that, I'll work on the socks. They don't require a lot of light to work on. I've got the pattern memorized. Even though the stitches are tiny, it still is easier to knit on than the blanket.

Must go finish supper. I am feeling much better today. Thanks for the hugs and well-wishes. I think I just reached that point in the diet where I had to get past the hurdle. I stuck to it and am still vegetarian. It seems easier today but it still is more work. I'll get through it.

You have been busy! I like the bears, and I really like the difference in the faces...sort of like brothers in their similarity.

I love that color. The bears are great.

I'm sure I intended the bears to look like brothers. Yeah...I'm sure of it.

I love the color, too, Sonya. My great-niece picked it out although she doesn't know it yet. hehe
