I'm really excited, I went out yesterday and bought some yarn for the Mr. Bean Bear http://www.knitting-and.com/knitting...s/beanbear.htm
. Anyone who's ever seen this show will appreciate how cool this is, I can only hope that mine will look as great as the one on the site, I couldn't find the yarn listed in the pattern (since it's Australian and may actually be discontinued - it's not even on ebay).
So I've started and the yarn may be a bit too thick and not exactly the same in measurements in my swatch even using size 1 needle (but close enough I feel). I'm curious to see if anyone else has attempted this pattern. If so, any pitfalls I need to be aware of, what yarn did you use? Any suggestions (things missing in the original pattern). I am hoping to have this done, sewn and stuffed by Thursday since we are flying home on Friday to visit family for a couple of weeks and I'm hoping this will be a good gift for Dad. Right, better get on with it.
