thanks,

yep, it's happy knitting. The only problem with my charity knitting I can't make the same item forever. I need a break but then I use some of those items as 'breaks' from other projects.

Must make some. I have a lot of stuffing that needs using up. Where is the patterns?

I just love them!

Thanks,
Tamar

Thanks! If you go here halifaxcharityknitters.wordpress.com and click on 'teddy bears' and 'comfort dolls' in What We Knit tag cloud, you will see the posts and relevant links. These patterns are available online for free.

It's my blog to promote knitting for local charities, you might find something else there that intersts you.

I recognize the teddy bear pattern. That's one I've always wanted to do. Yours look much better than the pattern pics, though. Thanks for the hint on getting rid of stash. Good suggestion! And I hate to say 'I told you so' but I've been telling you for a year how talented you are with your designs and how you should get published. I hope you get the recognition you deserve. Good luck.

Thank you, you are sweet

Ahem, about the teddy bear, I changed it, of course I am still thinking whether to add modifications or re-write it with permission. It's just different proportions -- longer body, shorter and thinner hands. So, altogether it's not just one line to add but I don't see how to contact the person who posted it first, there is no contact info on her website. So I picked a 'sister' charity site for reference...

I might get to it later, I think it's a brilliantly simple design that produces great results.

Okay, I couldn't figure out whose link it was that I had clicked on!!!!


Now I finally figured it out. A couple weeks ago I found the teddy bear pattern and fell head over heels for it, so I made a matching one for the baby set I had made for our crisis pregnancy center. Thank you for linking it because I couldn't find a toy pattern that I liked (and that was easy enough for me). The set is now complete.

BTW, yours are adorable.

Thanks,

just because the teddy bears are showing really small in the tag cloud, here is a direct link to the post with bear-making steps showing and the pattern links.
