Embroidery is not my friend.

At long last, the Baby Bobbi Bears are done. It may have taken double-digit numbers of tries (and ripping out and cursing) to get them both done.

Reece's Bear:

Julie's bear:

Pattern: Baby Bobbi Bear by Bobbi Intveld (for Blue Sky Alpacas)
Yarn: Blue Sky Alpacas Organic Cotton (except the purple detail which is Peaches & Creme)
Needles: Size 9 Clover DPNs
Started: Sometime in November (don't remember, and they were both different start dates)
Finished: December 16, 2007 (both)

To anyone considering using this yarn, be forewarned: it BREAKS with a vengeance. Worse than Noro Kureyon.

Embroidery onto knitting is definitely a whole different thing than onto fabric. I think it's going to take me quite awhile to get it down. The bears are really adorable! said...

Baby Bobbi Bears by you are soo cute! They turned out very nice. I like to knit toys, too. In the season I knitted Santa's Little Helpers (the pattern is by Alan Dart).
Happy New Year 2008!
