I finally got round to giving Baby Bear a face. He seems rather happy about it. This bear is for the Mother Bear Project that one of my groups on Ravelry is supporting this winter. I adapted the pattern so that I could knit him in the round. If you remember, I started with the sweater and then added arms, legs and finally head. I followed a lot of the ideas from the Campesino Doll Purse I made last year for my niece. I will write up the pattern sometime. Don’t hold your breath though.
I’ve been having quite a finishing jag. Diane’s hat is to go with the scarf I finished earlier. I knitted Grumperina’s Shifting Sands Scarf and as I had yarn left over, I made a hat using the shifting sands pattern:
I also finished October’s Washcloth, which was Lotzastitches King Charles Brocade done in seasonal orange.
Pattern: King Charles Brocade
Needles: US 5
Yarn: Zitron Polo, colorway 81 (orange)

Comments: Since I was using a much heavier yarn I cast on less stitches (42) so that I had three pattern repeats across.
