I have been so inspired these last two weeks. Not sure what it is, maybe because I’m not in pain? Maybe because I know the mad heat of summer is coming to an end soon? Maybe just because the quiet voice inside finally starting roaring, and instead of doubting, it started declaring. I’ve been getting out and making friends, knitting here and there and connecting with people. I’ve been knitting three bears a day. Two from past orders, and one ready made, ready to ship. And nothing feels better than curling up in front of my laptop at the end of the day, with Mario close by, and unwinding with a dose of ridiculousness on Hulu. My friend Kevin Potter suggested I start doing more video posts, which I’m slowly working on. And my friend Giovanni always inspires my mind with great ideas whenever we talk. I have two books working that should be ready by fall. I’m outta control! There’s a great smile on my face and a great sense of hope and joy in the actions I’ve taken of late.
Do you remember my telling you about the box of yarn that Jennie sent me? Not only did it contain that amazing Noshua cotton, but tucked inside were three skeins of a Cashmere, Merino wool blend by Debbie Bliss. Man, this stuff felt amazing, felt so tender and delicate, so soft and refined. It doesn’t feel like yarn, it feels like a lifestyle of comfort and pleasure. So, this is the first of the three bears I plan to make with that little stash. I adore this bear. I really do. I love the color, his pouting face….I hope he goes to a well deserved home.

He measures 12 inches tall, and is ready to ship with a signed card by me. Cheers! I’ll talk to you soon!
