View Full Version : My son made this

01-12-2009, 07:46 PM
A while back I posted on the general forum that my son was knitting a bear. It is done. All the knitting is his, I did assist with color changes at first, I sometimes ripped several rows back and then knit one or two to get him going again. I cast it on and bound it off. He did half the seaming--via whip stitch, but then school began again so I finally did the rest. I did the face and bow tie too. But still he did the bulk of the knitting. I just sort of shored it up. This is the first thing he's ever knitted to completion except for an i-cord. He just turned 14, so was at the end of his 13th year when he knitted this. It has a few wonky spots but none the less I am very proud of his effort. We will be sending this off to the Mother Bear Project.

That's wonderful! I hope your son keeps knitting.

I agree with the others. This great knowing that he was so young. He's about my age and I can't manage to knit well [enough]. It was a great job, even if you helped him or not. Can't wait to see other projects!
