Your Mr. Bean bear turned out great! Maybe I'll just insert another color for the last couple of inches that I have left to do - you've motivated me!

Thanks for the compliments everyone. I'm so chuffed with him, in fact I've nearly finished hubby's Teddy (just one ear and a load of sewing and stuffing to do).

Carolyn, good luck finishing your bear, I'm curious as to which part of him will be a different color, blue ears maybe, or a red top of the head?

Earthchick, thanks for the comps on the blog, I feel I'm a bit of a geek having one on knitting (of all things) but it's a great help for me to keep a track of all I've done in such a short space of time. Thanks also on the congrats on the wedding, it was a truly wonderful day, and we are so happy to tie the knot after 10+ years together!

Hi Cathy,

First, congratulations and best wishes!

Sorry I didn't reply earlier - have been busy with work. All the pieces except part of one "body" are done and some pieces stitched. I ran out of yarn when I was working on the second "body" - so - it's the last couple of inches which would be the crotch. What a place to run out. The yarn I'm using is old ("inherited") and it didn't have labels. I'm not even sure if I'm using the same yarn and dyelot, but it felt and looked the same. I should just start over again - both my kids are big Mr. Bean fans.

Carolyn

Where can you buy the woodblend crepe yarn? I can't find it anywhere.

I'm pretty sure that you can't, it's Australian and I think that it's out of production (although you might luck out watching ebay for a few weeks/months). I had a nightmare trying to figure out the yarn, eventually settling for a worsted weight wool yarn, but the second bear I did was with a British acrylic (really cheap and nasty) and it worked out fine too. Since it's Mr. Bean's bear I'm pretty sure he doesn't have to be perfect. Good luck.

Could this be the yarn?
I found something called "Panda Woolbale" at Smiley's Yarns.

Could this be it?

I'm just starting my mr. bean bear, but I thought I would ask this now, so I don't run into headaches later. Do you guys have any tips on how to embroider the nose? I have no experience with embroidery. Thanks!
