Back in November, I took a knitting class at The Needle Lady. I had cast on a sweater for Sophie right before the class began, and I quickly realized I could not knit nearly as quickly as the weeks were progressing. (The sweater now needs to be re-cast on in a bigger size!) I knew I wanted to learn how to increase and decrease in order to gain any self-sufficiency in knitting so I switched projects: Let me introduce:
The Bear!!! Sophie received him on Christmas morning, and seems to have taken a liking to him. Deep down this makes me very happy, because I had a bear I was completely attached to when I was little. Truth be told, I was attached to him for way longer than that and my dad built a box for him once I was old enough not to sleep with him. I was very creative as a child and his name was Bear.
Knit from a Debbie Bliss pattern in Simply Baby out of Baby Cashmerino yarn. I liked the pattern and actually thought it was a good jumping off pattern into shaping.
