What's Off The Needles...

Here's a scarf I knitted for my granddaughter. She is a Harry Potter fan. You can make it any color you choose. It's very simple. I used a 16" circular size 8 needle. Cast on 70. Place marker and join in the round. Work in the stockinette stitch (knit all stitches) 7inches wide and 70 inches long without fringe, or as long as you want it.
I was taking it to her today, but seem to be under the weather a bit, so it will have to wait.
Have a great evening!

What's On The Hooks...

While keeping the two grandkids a week or so ago, Fuzzy, the four-year-old, asked if I would make him an owl. I got out the crochet hook and some yarn. Within a few minutes I had crocheted a tiny little owl no more than four inches long. He was happy.

This past week when he came he asked me to make him a bear. We looked on line and finally decided on a Paddington Bear. I was actually looking for a pattern that I had made in the mid-eighties, but didn't find it. If anyone happens to have that pattern and doesn't mind sharing please let me know.

This is the best one I could find. It is a free pattern on Ravelry. You can find it under Yellow Pink and Sparkly by Janet McMahon. I have all the pieces completed, but not all are sewn together. It's a very easy pattern.

Here it is in it's almost completed stage.

                  Paddington has black ears.

Have a great week!

Winner of the GYB giveaway...

Have been waiting on the two week mark since the GYB post. Thanks to everyone who stopped by and to those who decided to follow. I visited many, many blogs and hope to visit more in the future. I will reveal the winner at the end of the post.

I've been babysitting two of my grandkids a few days a week since Christmas while mom and dad work on the building of a new house. They are four and two. Four is a very fun age. They can say the cutest things while being perfectly serious. One evening I told them, "Let's go to the kitchen it's suppertime." Fuzzy, the four-year-old, threw his arms in the air and shouted, "Yes, it's suckertime. I love suckers." When I told him I didn't say suckertime he said, "Next time say it's foodtime and I'll understand." Luckily, I just happened to have two suckers, from Lord knows when, in the pantry, so it all worked out. I also learned something about myself. According to Fuzzy, I look better with my glasses on. I thanked him for the tip and wondered silently if pulling my glasses on and off in public was a good idea or not. Here is a "selfie" taken on his mother's phone and sent to me as they were driving home.
The two-year-old had to have glasses last week. While I was keeping him I noticed his eyes were crossing. After his mother picked him up she called and said she had noticed it too. It was rather severe. She immediately called for an appointment with a pediatric ophthalmologist.

After a few days of wearing them he refused to let his mother take them off when it was time for bed.
I will contact via email.
Thanks again to everyone who visited.
Have a great week!
