My son made this
A while back I posted on the general forum that my son was knitting a bear. It is done. All the knitting is his, I did assist with color changes at first, I sometimes ripped several rows back and then knit one or two to get him going again. I cast it on and bound it off. He did half the seaming--via whip stitch, but then school began again so I finally did the rest. I did the face and bow tie too. But still he did the bulk of the knitting. I just sort of shored it up. This is the first thing he's ever knitted to completion except for an i-cord. He just turned 14, so was at the end of his 13th year when he knitted this. It has a few wonky spots but none the less I am very proud of his effort. We will be sending this off to the Mother Bear Project.
