I love Chistmas time. I love Christmas music... I love knitting Christmas Presents...I am insane...
I fear the bear...
As cute as this bear is I have locked him in a closet. Baby Bobbi Bear is patiently waiting to get his arms..and I am dreading it. I am frozen with "I hate finishing syndrome"!
As Patrick Swayze once said "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" - let alone the closet - so I must muster up the strength to soldier on and finish the poor little guy.
Let just say..Baby Bobbi Bear is not that little.
There is a Bobbi Bear which looks adorable on the instruction flyer cover.
But this Bobbi Bear is a monster. The finished bear is about 20" tall! It's such an illusion!
So I decided to do Baby Bobbi Bear thinking - Oh, this will be a better size.
But is it no mini bear - it's 15" tall!
Here is the poor little guy waiting to be finished. He's screaming - "Hey Nicole there are not that many days left for Christmas and you can't give me to your Niece Davis without arms, eyes or ears - you'll freak the little girl out!"
He looks like an alien! I used the Blue Sky Organic Cotton in color #82 nut, 100% cotton, weight: worsted/aran, 100 g / 150 yds, gauge: 4-5 sts = 1", needles: US 7-9. He's very soft - not a harsh cotton at all. I think Davis will love hugging him.
Let's get crackalakin'!!!
