I recently had the notion to knit little bears for my knitting friends for Christmas...this year. What I really mean is that I was going to knit actual, tiny teddy bears....like, 20-25 of them for my friends...and I would be finished in time to gift them at our annual Christmas party...at the beginning of December...yes, this year.
I didn't knit that one...but I could have...I have a pattern. (Marico knit the one pictured above, and you can check out her blog at this link...MARINOIE, if you are so inclined). I was also going to knit each of my 20 tiny bears a sweater, because I wouldn't want them to get cold. Winter is coming, you know.
I know, right?!? So then I thought that maybe I would buy twenty, tiny teddies and just knit twenty, tiny sweaters to put on them. So, I started to knit tiny teddy sweaters...
First one, and then another...
Ok, two down, 18 to go...
I know... I know... I'm not gonna make it...(sigh!) Each of those sweaters took more than 3 hours...I don't even know how my head goes there! Oh, wait. Yes I do...
LOOK HOW STINKIN' CUTE THEY ARE!!!
Gahhh! I need more hours in my days! I'm not going to get them done between now and Christmas, am I? (lol! and sigh!) Oh, well. I've got other ideas...I've got LOTS of IDEAS!!!
Yeah, I know. It'll be what it'll be. Right now, my head hurts from all the ideas. I think I need a nap!
Thanks for stopping by, and Knit in Good Health!
And, if you figure out where the extra hours are, let me know!
