PROGRESS REPORT: Teddy All-In-One has now got two feet and two legs. I am going to put them together on one circular tonight and do the 1/2 inch of connecting and then I think I will pack it in for the night.

Even knitaholics need sleep!

Construction of Teddy All-In-One
PROGRESS REPORT:

OK Fellow Knitters:

I need a push here. I am in garter stitch hell! I have gotten the right front done, am half way done the back and the left front is on a holder waiting for me. Every time I make this outfit I get to this point. I would not call it laziness, just boredom with garter stitch. All those different increases and decreases didn't bother me, in fact I liked that part. Now it's just straight knitting and knitting and knitting! That's not the best part of all of this... the hood has to be knit onto the body and this is the hardest part of the whole project. Everything else just hangs there while you are knitting the hood and it stretches it all to heck. The hood is next!!! OMG how I dread that hood. Every single time I have knit that hood I have made an error and had to frog it! This is GOING TO BE the first time I AM GOING TO DO IT RIGHT, THE FIRST TIME!!!

So fellow knitters, give a communal ummphhhhhh to me please, just to get me over that garter stitch hump and on to the hood.

Friend, Knitters, and Countrymen, lend me your MOJO!

Here's a picture of Ted as of five minutes ago.

Go, knitter, go! Go, knitter, go! Sorry, I just saw this thread just now so I'm a bit late with the cheerleading. I can't wait to see the finished teddy!

Contruction of Teddy All-In-One...

Here is Teddy All-In-One with his hood finished and the shoulder seams sewn together. He sure looks different than he did two days ago. He is missing his button bands and his sleeves, and to have his sewing finished. Oh yes, and I have to BO the hood ribbing too! The knitting is going faster than the last time I made this outfit. AND the hood was easier this time too!!!


OK dustinac??? Here's your pictures.......
