A Friend for Mr. Popper

Today's headlines include this cheery news: "It may be fall, but this weekend, it'll be winter." Our garden hasn't quite gotten the message. We still have hydrangeas, pansies and have even seen some roses on our walks. Our beauty berries are also in their glory. The holidays are sneeking up quite quickly, and it's time to speed up the knitting and sewing.

Mr. Popper was lonely, so he now has a friend named Nick. What with the threat of winter, it seems like a good time to show these Arctic pals. Next I'm going to try to use the leftover yarn to make a chicken.......

Back in the Midwest, Miss Sophia has found a new look, and the boys are modeling some of Oma's wares.



Gotta run. Have a great weekend!

Oh my goodness..what a beautiful blue sweater and what darling little duck slippers! They make me smile. :-)

What kind of berries are those? How pretty. Are they edible?

Hi Judy,

here in Bavaria it is snowing at this moment, I think winter is coming here now. I don't know which is the name of these blue berries, in Germany they are called "Schehen"?
Your grandchilds are so lovely, wonderful the blue sweater and the duck-booties!

Always a great pleasure for me to come and see!

Have a nice week and welcome to my blog followers!

Great knitting projects on cute models.
I'm still picking tomatoes and bell peppers here in Oklahoma, but we are supposed to get a hard freeze Wednesday.

Are those berries really that blue? They're gorgeous, and so is the photo in your header. Oma has been a very busy knitter--the blue sweater is wonderful!

Very cute knitwear on the boys. I made a similar sweater for my daughter when she was little from an old Patons pattern.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours. With all this cold weather, staying inside to knit sounds very inviting.

Dear Judy
Even here, near Cologne, is about tree days a little snow,
- We freeze a lot ;-)
Your knitting things for the sweet boys are wonderful - what a nice idea with the ducks.
Sophia looks so cute out ..
I wish you a beautiful Christmas season.
