The Quirky Bear
This is Goober. He's our latest addition in the quest for a use for scratchy yarn and the ever rowing yarn stash.
He was made using some handspun leftovers from Gandalf's light rose gray fleece. Goober's pattern came from Claire Garland's book, "Knitted Bears."
While his body is made of handspun alpaca, his little red overalls are made from some leftover wool sock yarn, and yes, they are knit in the round.
My daughter thinks he need a nice pair of striped socks or knitted shoes, but I kind of like him
in his "bear" feet--pun totally intended!
