I'm on a cute streak...God help me...

Yep, first it was Amigurumi stuffed animals. They're cute and funky. Now, I found a blast from my childhood yesterday at a fabric store in town. May I present:


Yes, Care Bears! I had a Funshine bear as a kid and a Grumpy Bear too. As if I needed another book to add to my ever growing collection...but hey, it's freaking Care Bears! I can't wait for Kathy to see this because she will probably just die laughing. It was an impulse buy, I'll admit. But it wasn't yarn! And they had nice yarn at this store...very hard to resist. Of course filling up my car with gas or buying yarn was the two choices...gas won out. Why are gas prices so high? Don't they know I have a gas hog of a Buick? Blah.

I've been swamped at work, but I've still been finding time to knit on my breaks and at lunch, so the paradise fish back panel is about 5 inches now. Only 19 more inches to go! Whooo! The funeral for Bishop Frank is today. I wish I could have made it, but I don't have the vacation time to fly in for it. I think he'll understand. I lit a candle for him.

I also bought felt last night to complete my little bunnies. I'll get pictures of them once they're done. I think now I'm going to use my last few minutes before getting to work to finish one of the scarves for the cousins.

Knit on...

Hee, hee! Hey, if you need an excuse to make one to give away, Thing Two LOVES Care Bears (she had a Care Bear party last year for her bday). She'd love a Bedtime Bear or Good Luck Bear (is that what the one with the 4-leaf clover on is?). Sorry to hear about Bishop Frank. Cancer's a rough way to go...
