My Work Basket

I just thought you might like to see the state of my work basket. I have been busy working on this teddy bear, and am just waiting for the toy joints to arrive and then I can put him together. I can't find anywhere locally to buy them, and mail order does seem the best option.

It has been fun returning to my own pattern. It always astonishes me that I wrote it. But then I remember the weeks of work writing and knitting, and altering and rewriting, and testing. 

I love this wool that I have used. You may have noticed it before on my blog, mainly for baby shoes. It was a jumper once, and just seems to go on and on. I may have enough left for another bear, or perhaps a different project. The colour is bit unusual for a bear, but I just like all the different shades in it.

Just a reminder that there is still a little bit of time to join in my Ginx Woolly Linx party for November. Click on the photo above or at the top of the page to find the party. I would love to see what you have been working on this month


  1. That’s going to be a lovely teddy!

  2. It is a beautiful colorway! Lovely for the little bear.


  3. Oh, your bear is going to be just lovely, I really like these shades together.
    It a shame sometimes that we have to go online to find soemthing isn't it? I like to support smaller local shops when I can but sometimes of course the product is just not there!

  4. Your basket is full of cute things¡¡¡
    Love that wool and the basket too.

  5. Lovely teddy bear and interesting basket!

  6. Love the color of yarn you chose for the teddy bear. It looks like it will be such a cute bear once you assemble it.

  7. Been awile since I've been current with my posting, due to travels; but am back and hoping to get back into things. Love the colors for your bear, anxious to see it all put together. Hope you're doing well and look forward to our visits and catching up.
