Well, I'm pleased at the results of my little webshow on Saturday. By mid-afternoon, three of the four bears had been adopted. Only little Percy is still waiting patiently. I think that I must have been in a little bit of a silly mood when I finished his face. Although I still like him--he makes me smile--I'm thinking about adding some needlefelting around his eyes. I guess I just need to think about it for a bit.
Last night, I finished Aidan, a 13 1/2" cream-colored alpaca bear with hand-painted blue eyes, needle-felted eyelids, a wobble-jointed head, and a knitted scarf. I haven't knitted in ages and wasn't sure if I even remembered all of the nuances of knitting. But I guess knitting is just like riding a bike because his little scarf turned out quite cute and just right for him. Here's a quick photo of him. I have to get some proper photos of him and then he'll be on his way to Diane's Doll Shoppe.
Well, I guess it's time for me to start a new bear.
