WIP finished

Finally I can show you a picture of Robert the bear, who I have been knitting for Tony's Birthday. He is from a book -The Knitted Teddy Bear by Sandra Polley. Tony chose him and decided he should be red. I used Rowan Classic Poppy and Donkey colours with added plastic beans to give him some weight. I finished him off with a golden yellow bow.



















We also gave Tony an ipod video which I made a pocket for from material and batting.

Lovely home crafted goodies :)

I think after seeing your red bear and Kaz's red monkey, I need to cast on something red too!

Love the teddy. I suggested a knitted Ipod cover but was shot down. The Cath Kidston version was similarly rejected.
