Smalls SAL for May - I've Been Beary Busy

I could hardly wait to post these cuties.  I had so much fun stitching this monogram from Kelmscott Designs  It measures approximately 2.5x 3 inches:
I'd like to introduce Ted E. Bear.  He's knitted using size 1 needles and very fine yarn I received in a Ravelry exchange over two years ago.  He stands sits a proud 2.5 inches tall. The pattern is from Huggable Bears Craftsy Shop.


I made his little bow by using a fork.  I can't find the blog that showed me how to do this, but if you search on the web, there are quite a few methods available.  In case you can't see the heart around his neck, it says "Made with Love".  Ted E. Bear will be sent to a dear friend who collects bears.  Their home was broken in to and they lost just about everything.  Hopefully Ted E. will brighten her day.

I must say, making the little bear was addicting.  I see more in my future.  Hmmmm - maybe a teddy bear picnic?  Sounds like summer, doesn't it?

Better run - Keep yourself surrounded by stitches ~ Cheers ~

  9. That bear is so tiny and cute. Very fiddly to work on something like that. You did such a great job. I'm a huge fan of fork bows and that's the perfect technique for the tiny guy.
