Did I mention I was knitting bears for orphans in Vietnam? They've arrived! My two are the ones on the left of the first photo - pink jumper and orange dress.

I love the photo of all of them.

Here's more Irish bear photos, including in progress shots of teddy 3, which I'm still knitting. With fair isle!

unav, leedy, please correct me if I've got your bears mixed up in my photos.

Re: Want to take part in the next bear drive?
I''d encourage you to continue with your plan to knit for yourself. I have two colourful hand knitted cardigans, both at least 10 years old and still getting compliments when I wear them. They are getting a trifle thin in places but warm and comfortable. I have had to put a few rows of very thin elastic thread through the cuffs which have stretched over time. They don't show and keep things in control. When they were new I did get them drycleaned but now handwashing and drying flat on a towel inside out in the harsh NZ sun works well. I wouldn't consider using the washing machine although people do without complaint using a soft wash cycle. Not for me though.
