Knitting has been stalled this week. Both John and I have been reading a fair bit; we've each read four books in the space of two weeks. Since I haven't found a way of reading and knitting at the same time (apart from the occasional audio book), knitting has suffered.
However, yesterday was Sit 'n Stitch, so I started another little bear. Meet Strawbeary...
I know... he/she doesn't have a face yet. That will come, but not until I'm inspired. The bottom picture is there as a comparison, to show the difference in size. Strawbeary is made with Patons Classic Merino on 4.0 mm needles. The pattern is Annita Wilschut's Carolus. I can highly recommend this pattern; it's well written and very easy to follow.
Incidentally, the tag on the little bear's neck reads "My name is Sammie. I'm a little bear looking for a BIG sister." Sammie will, as I've posted before, be going to Sam when her little sister is born.
Now, I'm off to get dressed for a road trip.
