well Holly, the one I did, (the one in the green dress) is Elizabeth, and the red one that my wife did is one of the beginner bears. my wife found that the beginner bear was a bit challenging, but then she's not a practiced knitter either. Elizabeth was fairly easy to knit up, and put together, though I wasn't familiar with doing a backstitch seam, though looking back, it's pretty easy once you get it down.
Wisdom is knowing what to do. Skill is how to do it. Virtue is getting it done.
That which does not kill you, isn't trying hard enough.
