Snow Bear

Please say hello to Snow Bear!

He's been aptly named Snow Bear given that he is white, but also because he was created during this snowy weather which has kept many of us indoors; but for us crafty people it's a perfect excuse to indulge in a spot of craft!

He sits 11cm tall (seated) and was knitted up using Stylecraft Fantasia wool, which I got at my local craft shop and is just gorgeous and soft. I might get a ball of the muti-coloured wool and do a variation in that next.

I think he's adorable... x

Knit 1, Purl 1

I seem to be suffering from inspiration overload at the moment gathering tonnes of ideas for various things. Plus with this snow and ice keeping me housebound I thought I'd make the most of my time and kick things off with this cute little bear which I found totally by accident:

The pattern is available here: and is a free download.

I'm in the process of knitting him (albeit very different to how he is pictured!) and will post up pics as soon as he's finished. so watch this space...
