Monster Bears And Knitting
Over the weekend I watched a MonsterQuest episode about the possibility that remnant populations of prehistoric bears—the short-faced bear (Arctodus simus)—may still exist in Alaska or Siberia or Canada.

I’m not an arts & crafts person, but the ‘little monster bear’ (and sexy picture) got me interested and I looked around her blog.
It turns out, in fact, that she has four blogs. All about knitting. She lives, apparently, in Alaska and I’m guessing those longs days and long nights need to be filled up doing something. She does knitting and blogging about knitting. And her blogs look pretty darn popular. They are:
