I love Bubby Bears and hate spinning with beads!

Bubby bears

The pattern is in Knitty, in case you were wondering. They are really quick to make - I nearly finished one in one night of knitting. Poor bear had to wait a day for me to knit the remaining leg. Now that they are both whole, I present you with Mama and Papa Bear, as Chris called them.

They will be added to Brenda's bag of things for the kids' hospital. They are so easy to make I think I will make another couple over the weekend.

Bead spinning

Spinning with beads or sequins - I HATE IT! I am not even sure I like the effect!

Tonigt at spinning class, just as an experiment, I painstakingly strung some beads and sequins on a cotton thread. I then spun up some black merino top and pled the two together. It was horrible. The sequins refused to slide along the thread and the result was a frightfully overplied yar with sequins and beads at rather irregular intervals. I knitted it all up into a swatch - and it was still nasty. Never again, I think.

I leave you with a picture of the night's work - eek!

Oh how cute are those bears! I can't believe how much knitting you get done with school and all. I wanna be you when I grow up.
