Six Inch Teddy

Unfortunately my phone's camera took this picturr upside down...

Ehow gives a easy to follow pattern on how to knit a simple bear using straight needles.  It’s knit all at once, meaning no ‘make two’ parts, and knit up for me in about 2 hours. 

While knitting it, i wasn’t too sure if i would like it or not, but now that it’s pretty much finished (i don’t think I’ll put a face on it), i find it to be super cute! Its a great pattern to use for your scrap yarn…not sure how much, but I’m fairly certain I’ll be able to make at least six or seven of these with one basic skein of yarn.  I used a size 7 needle, so I’m interested to see how big it would be with size 9 needles. 

Definately a great item when you feel like making something quick and low maintenance while watching a movie, or as i prefer, listening to an audiobook. 

I plan on making a couple of  larger Teddys for my friend who is expecting twins, but i may just add a few of these in as well.  They’re the perfect ‘newborn’ size and would look cute in the cribs, not to mention, a great stuffed animal they can keep and cherish for years to come; my grandma had bunches of stuffed animals this size from my dad’s youth that i enjoyed admiring for years.

It’s getting late here, so i don’t think I’ll be knitting much more tonight.  It’s Halloween and me and my love are planning on going to a cornfield maze tomorrow, so i better get nice and rested so i can run from any chainsaw bearing zombies or clowns that may center me out.  Not to mention, NaNoWriMo is starting tomorrow, and its the last day of my vacation, so I’ll need the rest before a world of stress hits, lol.

I hope everyone has a safe and spooky Halloween!
