I wonder what you charge for knitting a huggable bear? Someone in our neighborhood keeps trying to get me to knit these bears for sale. I told her that I do it for fun and for grandkids. If I had to knit them to sell, it wouldn't be so much fun anymore. She kept pushing me on this and asked what I would need to make it worthwhile to sell a bear. I answered 5,000 dollars, meaning that I want to make things for my grandkids. Now she is leaving the neighborhood and said to me that she wants me to knit her a bear and she would pay me. I didn't answer her then. So I want to know what you guys charge when you sell a bear. Thank you for any information you are willing to share. Johanne
Gorgeous prayer shawl. Thanks for sharing the link to the pattern.
What nice tea cozies and what fun to have knitting challenges with friends!
Amy, I truly believe we are all blessed by this group! Know that we are sending good thoughts and prayers to you and your son as your both embark on this next phase of life. Hugs to you both!
Nice job, Amy. You are sending love and hugs to your son with this blanket. I understand the bittersweet aspect. It is truly mind-boggling how fast the time goes by. My aunt just sent a picture of my husband and myself with our oldest son when he was 6 months old. He is now 38 years old and a father himself. Treasure each moment of the next two weeks and keep those memories close to your heart. Hugs to you!
Your group is very lucky to have you crafting for their sale. Thanks for sharing your gorgeous work!

So cute. I just gotta knit a bear. All these bears are making me want to join in the fun.
Hey Jan, you will have such fun with these bears. I have knit 3 of the huggable bears and have 3 pocket bears knit and stuffed and ready to be put together. Be careful, though, it is addicting! Hugs, Johanne
Hey little bear, don't feel sorry for yourself. You and your big bear are adorable! Hugs to you little bear!
My advice is to work for a certain period of time, like even 30 minutes, on the boring project, and then work for a bit on the new, fun yarn. Use the time on the boring project as "payment" for getting to work on the fun stuff! I am a firm believer in having fun with your stitching.
When you get your pattern from craftsy.com (a gypsycream pattern), if you have any questions or need any help, just send Pat (gypsycream) your question and she will help you. There are also lots of people knitting LOTS of bears here on KP and much helpful information has been offered, so you can do a search for more information or just post your question here. Just a word of warning, once you get started knitting these bears, you run the risk of getting addicted to knitting them! Have fun!
Lovely work. We'll be watching for the pattern.
What darling baby shoes! Thanks for sharing.

You can buy Gypsycream's patterns on craftsy.com. However, she is wonderful about answering any and all questions about making her animals.
