That explains a lot bears knitting those cute little clothes...

Mental P Mama said...

My daughter can knit me under the table. I have never managed the casting on....

kenju said...

I probably should have learned to knit. I tried once and the potholder I was trying to make turned out to look like a banana cover. LOL

Re the pack rat? Those 4 badges didn't take up much room all those years, Bear....LOL

Miss_Yves said...

A fun fur boa scarf, indeed!
Great knowledges about knitting!
"How to knit your stress away" : this is a good "recipe" because your female teddy bear seems
K ool !

Rebeckah said...

Wow, those scarves seem WAY cool, but I don't know how to knit. I've always admired people that do. PS I LOVE your free rice button! I try to play for at least a few minutes each day!

Kay Dennison said...

Knitting one-handed is impossible for me. I used to enjoy it and this pattern looks so simple even I could have done it.

Kim from Hiraeth said...

I've never learned to knit but I'd like to someday. My husband would not be happy to learn that I want to learn yet ANOTHER crafty way to spend money! : D

Reader Wil said...

What a lovely bear Kathleen is! My two daughters used to knit and I had to knit socks for my exam as a teacher. It was the only subject I failed, which was not so terrible, for a year later I could do it again and I got my appointment anyway. The second time I passed.

Gary ("Old Dude") said...

oh wow----"purl one, ----bind up---did ya know your eyes light up when your talking "dirty"? (lol)

antigoni said...

So beautiful post for letter "K".

marina said...

Knitting is my favourite hobby and I can't believe my self that I didn't put it for the "K" word!!!

ChrisC and JonJ said...

What a great idea!

Ink and Stone said...

Nice choice for K and it teaches something too!

Smart Mouth Broad said...

My mother used to knit and taught me as a girl. I lost interest when my tension wasn't what it should be. I so wish I had kept at it. Now she is gone and I've no one to teach me.

Liz said...

Do you know I think even I could manage that pattern!

kml said...

She is adorable! I love to knit - I remember my Gram teaching me all those years ago!

Jay said...

Knitting!! I didn't think of knitting. Possibly because I'm just not a knitter. I was given one of those knit-your-own-scarf kits about two years ago and it isn't finished yet!

Love the picture!

babooshka said...

Never did learn hot to knit. My freind does the most wondeful jumpers. Lovely choice.

Rose said...

Kathleen looks so comfy and relaxed there with her knitting needles. Learning how to knit is one of my goals this winter!

Daryl said...

I used to knit and I found patterns more interesting to do .. tho often I would be counting and Husband would kibbitz and confuse me ... admittedly I am easy to confuse

naturglede said...

As always, a beautiful post. Love your bear:)

starnitesky said...

Kathleen Kennedy is gorgeous! I have knitted many scarves with this type of yarn - so easy to do.

MumbaiiteAnu said...

Beautiful photo. I know basiics of knitting but really haven't knitted many articles. I wish I could learn more.

nonizamboni said...

Knitting! Great idea for 'k'. And thanks for the pattern. I know I have some eye lash yarn in my stash too. What fun.
Happy Wednesday!

Annie said...

Thanks for Kathleen Kennedy and her knitting...not to mention the scarf pattern...will have to give it a go...glad my Mum taught me to knit , not that I do much of it! I now try to encourage the grandchildren too!

Thanks for your visit to my post...I love all your bears...so cute..and the stories too...love the tea for a stuffed head cartoon..very clever!

My garbage bin has just lost its lid...but all I have to do is put it out on the footpath (sidewalk) and the council will come and replace it...how is that for service? Lucky me!

splummer said...

Hi!
Your "K" is great. But, sorry to say I can't knit. But I do crochet! Take Care!!

Midlife Slices said...

My MIL taught me about 3 years ago but I can't keep consistent tension and then I lose count. I'm a failure. wahhhhh.....I want to be able to knit things to give away.

Dave said...

That Kennedy Klan is so Kute!

mannanan said...

Great choice for K. I learnt to knit many years ago when in the cubs but I've long forgotten the art.

Kim said...

I wish I could knit. I tried it once, but it took me too long to not get very far, so I stopped. Maybe I'll try again someday.

leslie said...

Ah, I just LOVE this bear! Reminds me of my mother who used to knit a lot for my sisters, me, and my two girls.

peppylady said...

I never learn to knit but hope to sometime.
Thanks for stopping in earlier.

Gemma said...

Your posts are so cute!! Kathleen is keeping busy!!!

kRiZ cPEc said...

cute as always, thanks for sharing.

Tash said...

a knitting teddy! is her nickname Purl? Definitely the cutest K post.

I will say 'hey' to Mr. Kelly the sandwich shop man for you. He'll be thrilled.

mrsnesbitt said...

LOL at Tash's comment! Pearl lol!

I can not knit, despite the many times mum tried to teach me. I think she despaired!

Louis la Vache said...

"Louis" has great difficulty knitting - something about difficulty with hooves and those needles combining with a lack of opposable thumbs. Be that as it may, Klever "K" - post!

JeanMac said...

Thanks so much for posting the instructions, uh, could you post how to cast on - I forget:)
I made a baby sweater in 1967 for our first born - it's still sitting in a box, wrapped in tissue as I didn't know how to "put the pieces together".

AphotoAday said...

Ah yes, that would have been my mother -- knitting miles of stuff that only a knot scientist could ever figure out...

Nydia said...

Bear Kathleen is a cutie! Shame on me I can't knit!! ut I'll pas this recipe on my mom, she makes som basic patterns.

Kisses!!
