That is an adorable avitar! If I weren't personally attached to the one I have, I would use it. The little cubs remind me of my grandchildren.
My daughter drew the bear in my current avitar since I live in the woods and like bear, as well as loving to knit socks.
Louine, I like the idea of the angel as a package decoration! I designed the angel for the lucybug charity knit-along, and hope to also make some for the warming Grace project.
I wanted something fast and with the least "fiddling" possible. The hair is probably the most fiddly part of the entire angel since the angel body is knit in the round and doesn't require seaming (although I hope to have a flat/seamed pattern out soon for those who prefer).
Nicole, thank you
