FO: Mother Bears #3 & #6
 
This is Bear #6, Freddy Bear. He was double-knit feet up inside out up to the sweater where I switched to dpns because the yarn is self striping. Sounds weird I know, but it was faster than double-knit right side out since there's all that yarn positioning to do.


Now meet Charlie Bear. He was knit flat and seamed together. Why did I torture myself with the seaming? Because a friend of mine was talking about how relaxing she found seaming. Yah, about as relaxing as sitting on the beach during a hurricane. Anyway, I finished bears 4, 5 and 6 before I finally finished this poor guy; tells you a thing about me and seaming. He doesn't even look right :-P Oh well.




The bears knit in the round are larger than those seamed so there's more bear for your buck. Although the ones I've completed with double knitting were done on size 2 circs and size 6 dpns for the sweater they are considerably larger than the bears totally knit in the round on size 7 dpns. The flat knit one, Charlie, is small compared to Freddy who was in the round.

So cute. Love the colours in these.

They are both really cute. At least doing that seaming taught you that you have chosen the best way for you when you do it in the round. LOL They are both adorable though.

Thanks Jan! I do like making them. They are fun, very easy to transport, no need for a chart and easy to put down and pick up quickly without loosing your place and such.

I started to write an explanation here about bear #6, but it's kind of mind boggling. If anyone is interested in my quick ramblings about it I'll post what I just cut out from here over on my blog.
