I have been busy since my last post. I have made 3 mini teddy bears and set up an office just for my knitting. My little Knitting Nook, as I like to call it. The bear above I made especially for my daughter.
I think I did pretty good with my bears right from the start. I use baby yarn and #2 needles. The pattern is very simple. Go to my previous post for the link to the full pattern.
My needles are foreign and I am actually using slightly smaller 2.5mm needles because I am cheap and ordered foreign needles. 😂 Cheap or not, they do the job.
I deviated from the pattern by making a cloth scarf for each bear (rather than a yarn bow), and on the bear for my daughter I added 2 rows to make the head a little more proportionate to the body. As you may have noticed in the first and second blue bears, the head is a little small. The green one used 2 extra rows for the head (40 total rows) and I like how it looks.
As you can see, my hobby has taken over a corner of my living room and I love it! During this quarantine, nothing makes me happier than being able to sit in my nook and work on a project. Now I just need an office chair! My folding chair lacks, how do I say this, comfort.
