Still Busy!

All that acrylic from the last post is going to the Mother Bear Project. I decided to make another bear with it before I send it all. (Plus I never actually sent the one I made last year, I kept thinking she'd be lonely. *blush*) I adapted the original pattern to use magic loop so no seaming, except for some kitchener on the arms and head after stuffing.

Legs started two at a time

Joined to a single item and then worked up through the head

Finished bear

Shown with last year's bear, I definitely will send this time!

Back in June at the Bead and Button Show, I bought a kit that was supposed to make a bracelet and necklace. The bracelet was done almost immediately but the necklace was never even started. I finally made it, but it's WAY too small, it fits my bear perfectly. But hey, it's done, it's now an FO instead of a WIP!

Last thing finished... these ribbed socks, started in May, were supposed to be a mindless project to carry around, but they ended up constantly getting set aside. So they didn't progress for a long time. Then I realized they are actually too small for me, but I have a recipient in mind for them. I finished them late last night (2am, which is REALLY late for me). Now they are blocking. I don't normally block but they are going to be gifted. They are 4x2 rib throughout the foot and the cuff is 1x1.

Ok, and these are just cute kitty pictures...

The bears DO look happier together!
