Thanks Jeanne, I love making these teddies for the children. Stripey was a challenge but glad I persevered:))

I tried to send you a message but the kas email did not work. I will try at the library computer in the next few days. Now it is raining buckets here and basements are flooding! I am working on the blue scarf from the lovely yarn you sent me. Also a hat for kas. Hope you are well. Blessings!

Thanks Jeanne,

The yarn I used said 10mm needles but I used 7mm to make him more chunky. I find it is best to secure the scarf at the back and make buttons from wool:))

Hello Jeanne, When i used to do this knitting in my younger:)) days I tried to make a rug but it used to curl up and no way would it stay flat. Years later as of now I thought scarf for teddies and I really enjoy doing it:))

Hi Jeanne,Thanks soo much for your praises. I do struggle with the faces. Many a time I have to start again but I am determined to persevere:))

Hello Jeanne,

I did the scarves on a french knitting dolly. Haven't used one of them since I was a young girl:))

Hi Jeanne, Thanks for your lovely comments. Boot sales  are a good place to find cuddlies. So many children here don't keep their toys for very long so they are virtually new toys. I hope to knit some more teddies when I get some more stuffing and hopefully their faces will be better with a few tips from Kathy P:)

Yes, I made hem. I call him Joe Louis (the boxer) and he is finished so I will be sending him. Because I was satisfied with my terrible picture taking with that photo so that became my avatar.

Hello Jeanne and thank you for your warm welcome :)

I'm enjoying browsing the useful links you gave and am very inspired by the lovely things being knitted. I was amazed by Lizzie's story so sending needles and wool whilst my squares slowly take shape.

By the way, I did search and was unable to find a list that define PJs and Gogo.

Thank you for the warm welcome. I have been browsing the site and glad you pointed to the ones I missed. Must look now. 

Enjoy small pleasures Jeanne.

Hi Jeanne:) Thank you so much for your kind compliments :) I hope you are doing fine again and that your health has improved. The hats are exactly the size you mention, I took that into account while knitting. They (almost) fit me. The handwarmers are 5 for the boys and 5 for the girls. The white edging is "Phildar Neige". I have used it before for handwarmers, it is extremely soft and strong. The crochet handwarmer do not need a special edging on top because I made the 1st 6 stitches with hook size 3.5 and the remaining 22 stitches wit hook size 4.00mm, so the top of the handwarmer will fit without a gap. Let's see what Ronda's findings will be. xo

Hi Jeanne, I said the same to this lady that I admire her being able to knit gloves. I am in my comfort zone with hats squares and scarves also. She looked soo happy when she knew where her gloves were going. Such a shame she didn't have more as my husband and I won't be in that area until spring next year. It is where our holiday caravan is which we have now closed up for the winter.

Hi Jeanne, Thank you so much. Yes indeed you are right about the wool, but luckily it is superwash. But I will put a note anyway. Thanks for the tip. xo
