Oh, please, those could not be sweeter. Do you have a favorite pattern and yarn? They really are too cute.

This answers the question, "What is this yarn good for?" They look great and lovable.

Very cute! What do you do with all of them? Do you donate them to children's charities? Or sell them? Or give them to family members?

I would imagine that an addiction like this would mean you eventually run out of room to store them (that is, if you keep every one you make).

And what a great use for fun fur--yeah, FUR!!

Thank you, yes this yarn is useful for something lol!

I don't knit so many these days, I mainly design bears of all different shapes and sizes. Also puppy dogs and I've done a kitten too, oh and a bunny, that was for my grandson for Easter last year.

I tend to give whatever samples I've been working on away, to friends in need of a hug. Hence the name Huggable Bears That's how I started designing bears, a dear friend was in need of a hug and she was too far away for me to give her one, so I knitted her a bear lol!

What a lovely idea! You are indeed a good friend. The knitting and shapes of the bears are wonderful but the expression on the faces is perfection. It's a great obsession.
