Bear to be Loved

Lovable Bear
Lovable Bear, from "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson

I have a nephew in the oven. Oh sure, I’ve had lots of seudo-nieces and nephews arrive over the last few years but this one is my first blood-relative real live nephew! He’s due to arrive late in September, which is just perfect because I too am a Virgo and Virgos are pretty terrific. I’ve knitted up a few little things to welcome him into the world, including this bear made from the Lovable Toys pattern found in Last Minute Knitted Gifts by Joelle Hoverson. Shortly after the bear was gifted it was pointed out that it looks oftly a lot like Mr. Bean’s teddy bear…

I’ve also knitted up a blanket, which has been well received. I had a ton of Bernat Handicrafter Cotton in all sorts of colours on hand so I figured it would be a good opportunity to bust away some stash, but in the end I bought more of the yarn to help vary up the colours. I didn’t know if the baby was a boy or a girl when I got started, which explains the amount of pink in the scheme.
