It's "back to school" time of year and that means the annual drive to Annapolis, MD to drop Youngest Daughter off at school.
I pulled out a bag of leftover Lion Brand Wool Ease and set to work. 1037 miles later - I had two little bears.
Oliver - Mother Bear Project Bear #1.
Clara - Mother Bear Project Bear #2.
Boy, were these addictive! And I was pleasantly surprised how easy the pattern went. I adapted the pattern from "Knitting for Peace" into an in-the-round version and then went a step further and made it a la Magic Loop.
After I finished two, I pulled out my Botany Shawl and went to town on that as well. I have about two more rows to go before binding off, blocking and - photos! I guess there is something to traveling long, long distances in search of an education!
Along the way, we stopped off to tour the Gettysburg Battlefield. Very interesting - but also very sobering as well.
