Golden Goldilocks

Greetings and hope you're warm and cozy this chilly afternoon.
I've not knit a stitch since I finished my sweater, but I'm watching some videos by Elizabeth Zimmermann...that almost counts as knittin', right? Anyhooo....
Blogger friend Susan did a couple of posts on her blog featuring Little Golden Books that I really enjoyed, and it got me to thinkin' about the ones I have kept to read to the grandgals. The stories are well done and really come alive when read alongside this cute likeness of Goldilocks. The doll turned upside-down reveals Mama Bear and Baby Bear...
Papa Bear is on the otherside of Mama and Baby.
I know you're dyin' to see both ends of the doll at once so here 'tis.
Just as a reminder...we're still offline, but I do have the opportunity to post now and then. Hope you have a great week!


  1. You are watching videos by Elizabeth Zimmermann and we are knitting patterns by Elizabeth Zimmermann at home...
    I love when we get 'connected' this way! :-)
    Stay warm!
    Feliz Navidad

  2. That Goldilocks doll is super cute. I am relieved you showed us both sides at once. I'm quite embarrassed to admit I was a tad confused at first ;)

    Merry Christmas and a very happy new year :)

  3. That Goldilocks/Bears doll is adorable! I've not seen one of those.

    I'm knitting the Delores Cowl right now.

    I wish you a wonderful Christmas. There has been at least 4 inches of snow on the ground here in my corner of West Virginia for about three weeks now. We're expecting another 3-5 inches for Christmas. Very unusual but welcome for the holiday ... then I hope it all melts on Dec. 26. :-)

    Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
