And yes, that is a tiny bihorn hat he’s wearing. “What about his army?” I hear you ask…
There it is, marching one hundred strong! “But what of his enemy?” I hear you ask…

Ok, I may have gone just a little, teeny tiny, bit mad, but who wouldn’t after knitting so many polar bears?!
(Pattern btw is free, it’s Polar Bear by The Knit Cafe Toronto.)
The purpose of these is to be Christmas ornaments for Christmas 2022, after I discovered 60 penguins wasn’t enough last Christmas. I was 12 short, so I planned on 80 polar bears.
Then Rabbie suggested it should be a centurion of polar bears, a polar bear garrison if you will.
And then I got brain fog with covid and there was 101. So the extra became Na-polar-eon at Engels insistence and the chaos ensued…
You have probably guessed that things have returned to normal, and I use normal very loosely here, in my household and yeah, it is, slowly. We’re all tiring out a bit too quick, and I have some issues with my lungs but other than that, yeah, getting there.
Its been a welcome break to the plague or drama or something or another.
In non knitting news, I’ve been dabbling in other fabric crafts – nothing too exciting, but it’s been fun doing some upcycling!
Will leave it here for now as I have cthulhu to prep, and I will convienently not mention that I bought six more balls of wool at the weekend – these are for a project coming up, honest!
Starting total – 843
Wool used – 32 (3 since last post)
Wool bought – 23 (Up 6)
Wool given to me – 16
Wool gifted to others – 1
Wool handspun – 3
Total – 852 (Net difference: +9 – really need to work on this!)
