Grumpy Old Bear is complete and he only took a few hours to make. He is a perfect size to tuck into a diaper bag, pocket, or even on top of a present. Grumpy was a lot of fun to make. I used a yarn with wool in it, so, he turned out a little different in shape. He seems a bit stiffer. I still need to work on facial expressions. It frustrates me when my expressions don't look like Susan's. I realize she is an artist and has the magic touch, but, I really love the faces on her toys.
I am listening to the news, after watching the Saints beat the Colts. I DON'T EVEN KNOW THE TEAMS! I just wanted the Saints to win. Louisiana can use some good news. Anyway, we have a HUGE winter storm heading our way. I need to get my next project in order, in case we are snowed in.
The Grumpy Old Bear is a great project for the beginner or for an experienced knitter. It took no time to knit the pieces and just a few hours to sew him together.
