Mr. Bear is a wonderful model

Mr. Bear, modeling the newly finished bamboo baby sweater.  He is not mentioned the fact that I have yet to produce clothes for HIM.
The baby sweater is complete!  This was the first project completed from the Vintage Baby Knits book I got last year, and I adore it.  It hangs beautifully, the shape is adorable, and I love the little hood.  It’s missing buttons, but those will come soon.
Blocking really made a difference with this one, the pattern is so much nicer when it lies flat:
In other knitting news, I have finished chart A for the Bitterroot Shawl.  That’s all 3 repeats of the chart, that’s 153 stitches my friends.  Now it’s on to chart B!
Didn’t end up taking knitting with me on my trip to Disneyworld.  The carry-on rules were getting silly, and it was only a 2 hour flight.  I also didn’t have a lot of down time to sit and knit in my room.  We got up early each day to get to the parks, and because all the dinners were booked for later times (after 7:30), we didn’t get home until it was time for me to fall asleep.  American channels are lovely though, I watched criminal minds almost every night as I drifted off to sleep.
Moving in a few weeks, eeeeee!  I start packing non-essentials tomorrow after I get some boxes from the bux.  We get our key on the 27th, in time to measure and clean a bit before moving week, which starts March 1.  Yay!  My own little home with fuzzyhead!
Till we meet again lovelies!
