the bear. Pattern: Best Friends Bear from IK Gifts Issue 2006.
Yarn: 5 ply yarn. - Just over 1 ball of cream, and half a ball each of the navy and dark pink.
Started: Saturday and finished on Wednesday afternoon.
This is really the first knitted toy that I have made. I am giving this to our neighbour's daughter who is nearly 2 years old, for Christmas. I hope she likes it. Isabelle and Lachlan have requested a knitted bear too, but theirs will have to wait until next year when I have more time, and can be bothered making another one. I find these bears very fussy to make with all the increases and decreases, and I need to improve my sewing skills too I think. Maybe they will be less fussy the more I make of them. Well I wont find out for a while will I. Now onto finishing the scarves for Isabelle's kinder teachers, and then not much more to knit for presents. Happy knitting everyone!
