LOVE your big brown bear, Diana...what a handsome fellow. :))
His knitted friend is looking good, thus far, too. :))
I don't mind knitting toys, but like yourself and many others, I find the stitching together and the facial features a challenge.
THANKS Amy for the encouragement and tips. I'll study your later bears ( loooove their expression) and will try it again. I read for the eyes position, 10 rows from the neck and 4 stitches apart ...???. Thanks for your support.
So, so strokable a texture and the bow just sets it off perfectly. New owner will just love it to death.
The darling little bear above was also traveling with a wonderful bunny companion.
Indeed. The yarn was very soft, tiny curls and chocolate brown. I'm glad you counted it. Thanks.
I have a birthday this month......... I have decided that I will have an afternoon of knit / crochet and chat and an afternoon tea Teddy Bears' Picnic. I have asked anyone who wants to give me a gift to bring along a teddy bear they have either made or rescued from a local charity and given a wash and brush up........ so I hope that by the end of the month I will be sending a parcel of teddy bears to you.
Sadly January in the UK id far too cold and wet and even icy and snowy some days, for me to have a real picnic!
Rebecca what a lovely idea ! Good luck with your prezzies !
What a great idea.
Rebecca, what a loving and generous idea! And a great way to spend a birthday afternoon. If I was closer, I'd love to join you. I hope you have a very Happy Birthday with lots of Teddy visitors :)) xo
Rebecca what a fun idea. I wish I could be there for the fun and festivities.
Your group always has the best teddies. They are a very talented group. Can't what to see what is produced.
Happy birthday, Rebecca!
What a fab idea, Rebecca. :)) I hope you have a lovely birthday. xo
