I worked long and hard on a HUGE sample for a book coming out in the next month or so . . .
Next I wanted something fun. One day, I looked down at my knitting bag and this is what I saw!
Ok, not really, but this was a really fun knit.
Mom wanted some Teddy bears for her great grand kids. I was planning on sewing some, but I am honestly much better at knitting so I found a lovely pattern (Vera by Anita Wilschut) and tested it with some yarn I had on hand. This yarn is some of the leftovers from what I dyed for my Carved Kimono last summer.
The pattern is beautifully explained and a fairly easy knit.
After I finished knitting BearBear, he decided he needed clothing . . . he offered to help knit it.
More on that later . . .

First the disclaimer - I did not knit this sweater. I love this sweater very much. Anna knit it and that is her wearing it. Dena and I just posted this pattern for sale on Ravelry. I have another sweater from Splendid Apparel on the needles now, but this one looks like it would be fun and relatively easy to knit. The pattern for this one is here. You can also look at all the sweaters in the Splendid Apparel book on Ravelry.

This blog just keeps getting lost in the shuffle! I really do mean to post here but I forget. I am doing so much secret knitting that I cannot show and that means putting off posting and then I just don't remember to come back and do it.
This is an Anna Zilboorg design from ages ago that I knit to photograph for the pattern. The pattern will be coming soon to Ravelry. I think this will make a lovely winter jacket for me - nice and thick and warm.

The outside . . . across the street and 2 tenths of a mile to the ocean . . .
Front entry inside . . .
From the dining room, looking at the living room . . .
From the front door, looking through the living room and out onto the back patio . . .
From the back of the living room, looking to the front door . . .
Behind the tv is the kitchen, dining room on the right, stairs to bedrooms on left and front door farther left . . .
Dining room . . .
Small but workable kitchen . . .
Behind the kitchen, a laundry room that opens to a closed in patio (where trash and a/c unit live). . .
Heading upstairs . . . center hall with bedrooms off on all sides . . .
The green bedroom - one king or two twin beds. Each bedroom has a separate bathroom and there is a powder room downstairs.
The blue bedroom - two twin beds.
The orange bedroom - this has a king bed and would be considered the Master . . .
It has the largest bathroom with two sinks, a huge bank of closets and a separate linen closet.
And it has it's own balcony overlooking the back yard and golf course.
The back patio and yard . . . we do get a view of a nice sunset over the golf course and a small lake.
And, of course there is lots of sand and ocean . . .
And sunsets over the marsh on the other side of the resort . . .
