The Teddy Bear is complete!

Been meaning to post this for awhile.

teddy bear all-in-one

Finally finished knitting up the Teddy Bear all-in-one from the Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino book. Stocking stitch can take a long time when you are knitting up something long for a baby. Sweaters? Quick and Easy. Add some trousers to it? Long frickin' time.

more progress

I started to read comments from other knitters about this knit and then started freaking out. Most people found the newborn size too small for the little one. I was too far into it and really didn't want to rip anything out (I normally don't), so I trucked on.

getting there

The very, very good news is that IT FIT!

FO - the teddy bear suit....with ears!

A baby made even cuter by one of my knits. Heck yeah.

On to the next project for the nephew...a matching stuffed teddy bear. Matching, of course, not because of style, but because in the end, I bought too much yarn.
