I saw something cute that would go great with the afghan. Knitting Today magazine has a darling pattern for knit boy and girl cheerleading teddy bears. They come complete with sweaters with a team logo and cheerleading pants and a skirt with the pleats. I tried to find a good picture of it on their site, but can't. If you look at the magazine cover in this photo, you can kind of see these bears in the top right corner.
I have the magazine, but I can't share the pattern, obviously because of the copyright issue. I know it's on sale at the newsstands right now.
Oh, wait! Found it!
