    I’m a button collector – mostly old and unique. Loved the button buttons! How do i order the pattern?

  2. Kathryn Lienau says:

    I made the fuzzy Polar Bear Hat. I had to hunt for the yarn. It turned out so well. I am making some for kemo hats for children. They are so cool.

    I bought the Knit a Teddy Christmas outfit last year for a base to knit my Donovan B. Bear (a Boyd’s bear) his “ugly Christmas sweater” – then turned around and reworked it for his pal Lambie’s “Canadian Pride” sweater. One of my next projects to start will be another turtleneck for Donovan with another yarn I want to play with. (His first turtleneck was my first attempt doing a traditional Aran pullover, about five years ago.)
