This is what my 7 yr old made me for mothers day! She is a such a sweetie, She made the little bear to go on the bag it was wrapped in. Then they made the book marker I will use when reading to her at night before bed. I had a wonderful day, relaxed in the morning with Barbie and hubby. Then off to Mother in Laws house to deliver her Glad blubs, and we had a cook out. My step daugher called me , My daughter Colleen called and put 55 dollars on my paypal account, then my son Daniel called and said he didnt get it in the mail in time but he sent me a 20 dollar gift card to Starbucks. So all and all it was a good day:). Hope everyone elses was as wonderful as mine!
I attempted this the first time with a different yarn with the free pattern online. It just didnt work for me. I ended up throwing what i had done in the trash! So then i decided to do it the way i wanted. Started off with the Grandma's dishcloth pattern and used that for the body. Did the head in the round and faked the ears. Turned out pretty good I think? And its a lot smaller than the pattern. Had fun with this one hope she can love it for years!
This is the bright pinks,blues, greens, plyed with the oatmeal in my previous (2 or so postings ago) I ended up with 22 wpi and not sure on the yardage but will add that when i get it done. I love the way it turned out! Wow 500 yards!
