It’s with great joy that I announce my latest fait-accompli! Or more specifically Bear Accompli!
Focused Solely On A Goal of Bear Accompli
Knitting 3-dimensional shapes isn’t my forte. Neither is embroidery. So knitting this beautiful bear required that I rely heavily on a good design.
Fortunately, I picked a design that was very well written. All I had to do was follow the directions. And the embroidery was minimal and relatively simple. I also like that the bear’s imperfections added to the personality of it.
The pattern is Bear (Knit a Teddy) by Sarah Gasson.
I used Jamieson’s Shetland Double Knitting yarn in colorway Osprey (238) for the main color and Rowan Felted Tweed in color #7240.
Fortunately, I had a couple of bags of poly-fill to stuff the bear.
Surprising, this project was a quick knit. Especially when I focused on only this project. On Facebook, Robbie noted he also made one of these bears and the young recipient loved it.
Now I’ll come up with a sweater or other garment for mine to wear.
Obviously, I was busy finishing the bear. But I also started a new shawl project after I finished the bear.
This is Waterline by Laura Aylor.
I loved the colorway she used in her Ravelry project, so I’m doing something quite similar. I also love the graphic strength of this design.
