I’ve got bears coming out of my ears over here!
I spent the weekend finishing up about one million bears. (OK, it was 4 bears, and I’m not totally done yet. A few of them still need faces.)
I was up to my elbows in stuffing, and my couch is covered in little bits of leftover yarn from weaving in all those ends.That’s the problem with knitting up a bunch of bears at once to “finish later.” It seems like a great idea as the bears pile up. But, then you have to spend six hours stuffing and seaming, which I do not love doing.
And this morning I’m putting on faces. Cute little faces with bits of felt and embroidery floss. I’m dozens of bears in, and I still can’t figure out how to make a non-grumpy bear. Oh well, what can you do? They’re still pretty cute.When these guys are finished, I think my bear box will be full and ready to send off. I’ll be sad to see them go, but happy knowing they’re going to be well appreciated.
Have you been making any bears? I’d love to see yours, too!
