I think Grandma Carleen would understand.

I haven't finished her shawl. I will not get it done by the Day of the Dead KAL date of Nov. 2. But I think that she would understand that I've been devoting my time to knitting for Kristi's babies. I think that she would also approve of the fact that I finished the third teddy bear tonight even after learning of Kristi's very sad news. I want Baby B to have his teddy.

I also think that she would want me to knit some hats to donate to premature babies on Baby B's behalf. I hope that this will be ok with Kristi. I know that many of us who read her blog were crying today when we heard the news. I don't feel much like blogging tonight. I wish that I could reach out to Kristi across the miles and share her pain.

It was very sad news. I feel like a friend, even though we've never met in person. My heart hurts for Kristi and her husband.

I too cried when I read Kristi's last post. I haven't even met her, but from keeping up with her posts about the 3 babies I really felt like I knew them. My heart just broke.

i have been debating whether or not to finish the third bunny for kristi, but, now that you say you finished the bears, i think i will go ahead with it... a pair just wouldn't be complete, even with the tragic news about baby B...

I just found out now (like within five minutes) ... I didn't read blogs yesterday. I am crushed, and cannot even imagine how Kristi and Noel feel. :( The bears are adorable.
