Baby Bobbi Bear is done. And when sewing on his face, look what I found! Ah the memories. You can see my masterpiece in the picture there. That thing took forever! I sold my bracelets for about a year before some teacher told me I wasn’t allowed to sell things in school. If only she knew that I wasn’t actually making a profit at all! Sometimes I made enough to buy more embroidery floss, but I sure wasn’t charging by the hour. Oh well.
Pattern: Baby Bobbi Bear from Blue Sky Alpacas
Yarn: Target yarn – “Knitting boucle yarn,” 98% acrylic, 2% polyester. 50gms/90yrds.
Needles: Size 8 bamboo double points
Finished: January 2, 2006
For: adorable 2 year old
Notes: Personally, I think his head is too big and his stuffing is a little wonky. Hopefully the 2 year old won’t notice. It’s a fun pattern. I would definitely recommend using the yarn it actually calls for though, or something similar. The target yarn said to use size 8s, but really that wound up being much too loose a stich for this pattern. I’ll probably make another one at some point because even despite user error he’s darn cute.
