OK, I think I'm a little burnt out on teddies for the moment. I suppose that's what happens when you make six of them in two weeks. As you can see, I got more creative as time went on, and I certainly got better at embroidering their faces! The green one is my favorite; it was my first attempt at a fair isle pattern, so I learned a lot about pulling too tight, and also about what happens when you accidentally read the chart backwards for a row. I'll send off my teddies to Mother Bear Project soon. And maybe I'll make another den of bears when the urge strikes again!


(P.S. The maroon one has a really cool cable pattern that doesn't show up at all in the photo.)

Those are adorable! You did a great job on them, and I know they'll get lots of TLC when they arrive at their destination.

Sarah... OH MY GOSH!!!

My dad taped some Knitty Gritty shows after you were talking about them - and I was so excited that he got the "Knitting for Peace" one.

I am amazed at the fair isle pattern :) The green one is definitely my favorite, too.

Your own "Knitsters" miss you a lot.

How much would you charge to make one of these cuties for my one year old niece? I'm serious, e-mail me and let me know!

Love the blue and white one on the far right.
He's clearly a referee of some sort of Bear
Football League. TOUCHDOWN!

Dang. I stay away for a few days, and I'm totally behind on your blog!

The bears are awesome though! I can't wait to start some of my own!
