>Poor Teddy

>Oh, poor teddy. I’ve started sewing him together and look what I’ve done to his ears:

(Photo no longer available)
I’ve put them in the wrong place – they should be higher up. I’m sorry teddy, I didn’t mean to. You’ll get used to them though and I’m sure nobody will laugh at you. And anyway they’ll make you more unique – really they will.

The instructions say to sew him up using back stitch. Are they serious? Have you ever tried sewing this stuff up? Well I’m sorry but I’ve oversewed it – I can’t do backstitch on this, it’s so difficult to see the edges with all that ‘fur’ in the way. Besides, who’s going to see the seams? They are all hidden by the fur. Anyway, he should be finished soon.

What else? Well I’ve started the right front of the Brioche rib jacket and I’ve got as far as the armhole shaping. I’ll be doing some more of that tomorrow.

The multi-coloured sweater is just about finished, I only have to sew the neck facing down and weave in all the loose ends and that’ll be it:

It’s not bad considering it only cost me 50p for the yarn.

I’ve also cast on for the hand knitted Patons Astro sweater and I’ve done a grand total of 6 rows. Hopefully I’ll have it finished by Christmas!

So that’s all I’ve got to report. I’ll post more progress updates as they happen.

Talk to you later,
