Don't fear the seaming ...

Yay! Bear is done. Forgetting to take the brown to start knitting another one was kind of an impetus to finish.

It turned out cuter than I thought but this was still a lot a practice bear. Maybe it's because I'm really not used to seaming (I've avoided it for years, rectangles and rounds for me, woohoo!). I'll see how it goes for the next one. I need to find a thicker yarn to do the face. She really does have a smile on their. Then again, taking pics at midnight ... yeah.

So huzzah for the bear! :)

Mother Bear Project Bear

Here's the body. I'm working up the strength to try and seam this puppy. I made a mistake that I will not make again. I slipped the edge stitches on the garter stitch sections, which of course will make mattress stitch much more difficult. Sigh. I think I need to eat dinner before I can think about seaming the head so I can knit on the arms. So far, this has been fairly easy, but we are heading into the soft sculpture section that I've never been good at.
