Good idea, I should have done that as I had two the same colours for the polar bears :sm03:Grandma G. said:Have you ever thought of making 2 identical buddies? Then one can be washed [or lost, or left at nursery] without a meltdown at bed time?
How lovely :sm01: Little ones love something soft to chew on don't they? That's why I recommend these blankets are knitted in cotton.knit4ES said:I've got a picture of my grand -niece chewing on a dishcloth I made of this yarn .
... her grandmother (SIL) had them in a lower drawer in the kitchen and she loved them.... blankies for her stuffed animals, etc.
She'd sometimes take one with her when she went down for a nap at their house.
So easy to wash.
Not the koala?? Now I designed that especially for my Aussie friends lol!leannab said:I love this Polar Bear. It's a toss up for me whether to make him or the kitty cat. Your patterns are ever delightful Pat, we're so lucky to have you as a designer on KP.
lol! in that case don't go rocking that boat Leanna! I've had first hand experience of mixed marriages remember lol!leannab said:Well now you mention it, the little baby is half Aussie but I don't think his mother likes ANYTHING Australian! Perhaps I should just test her. Food for thought now!! I have to say that Polar bears are probably everyone's favourite though!
Aww thank you :sm02: I like Lily's Sugar and Cream but it does seem a bit stiff to knit with, does it soften after washing?Spreuss said:That is just darling! I got the pattern today!!! I can't wait to start my polar bear. I love Lily's Sugar N' Cream Yarn!!! Now I have something else I can use the Yarn for!! Thank you, Pat!!!
