Shout Out!

I’m shouting it from the rooftops that the Berry Tart Hat is finished.  I only wish I had made it larger so the new baby could wear it until he/she is at least 15 because I will NEVER make another one.  You know what I mean—bobbles and all that!  So this is my shout out to all you brave knitters out there who will tackle a bobble or two in your future—Brava!
The weird little girl modeling Berry Tart Hat is Bear Baby.  Something you may not know about me is that I collect strange stuffed animals.  I started out collecting teddy bears, but as the years went on my children and friends grew stranger and creepier in their gift selections.  The result is an eccentric collection that I keep in a display case in my bedroom (and two or three on top of a high shelf) so as not to terrify small children who might wander into my home. 
Note: the dogs don’t like them either!  In spite of their love of all things soft and stuffed they have never touched one of the weird crew.  In the future, as I continue to knit baby hats, I will have them modeled by a few of my “pets” like 50’s sock hop rabbit, mink piggy bear (we’re not sure which) and BIG lady bug.  I’m afraid that if I revealed the entire collection at one time you would ban me from this knitty/bloggy group. 
The week has zipped by at warp speed without any other knitting to speak of except the phone bag, which I confess I only finished off with a cast off and an I-cord, and a few rows of the second glittery fingerless mitt.  I feel blessed to have found the time to knit that much.  Work knitting is non-existent at this time.  DH helped me find time to go to lunch with DIL and the grandkids’ visiting Canadian Grandma.  The Olive Garden never looked so good to me!!

Macy and Max are waiting for their lunch.  Kibble bowls all around….

Life is good!

So cute - Max and Macy, the mitts and the hat. I'm not sure about the baby in the bear suit.

I used to collect bears too. Sadly, my better ones have not been well-preserved.

The hat really is cute!

Looks like Max has recovered from his paw injury. I hope he is doing well.
