Knitting a couple of teddy bears was a fun break from knitting the Lover's Knot blanket, my latest expansive off white cable project for my son and daughter-in-law.
Meet my new nameless friends:
and what they look like from the back:
Stitchin girl's bears were my inspiration for these bears. Hope she doesn't mind me copying her idea. Her bears look like bears....I'm not quite sure what animals (or aliens) mine resemble. I like hers much better. I've been admiring her bears for quite some time now. She does have a knack for bear making!! She's made more bears than I can count, even small key chain ones. My boys think my bears look scary, but I think they kind of cute.
The construction of these bears is pretty simple, but the fun comes in embellishing them. I thought a ruffle skirt or tutu was a cute addition to make one of bears look a girl bear....then I added overalls to the boy bear. The pair is a gift for my friend's daughter's new baby and big sister. Hope they like them.
I'm still plugging away on the blanket...not much progress this week. Hopefully by next week I'll have a progress picture for you. I have to focus and just get it done.
Happy Knitting :)
