WIP Wednesday 84

I’m in a hurry this week – too much to do, too little time…

First up, I have no new photos, but I’m nearly ready to turn the heel on my Alpha sock, and I’ve nearly completed the lace section on my Cherry Blossom.

But all regular knitting was derailed a bit on Sunday, when I learned that the little Pippa bear that I gave to a special Small Person earlier in the year, had gone walkabout leaving behind a very sad SP.  So…

I’ve taken the opportunity to work some more on converting this pattern (knitted flat) to a knitted in the round pattern.  I’m still not very happy with the shape of the arms (I’ll adjust that for the next bear I make), but I added in a raglan-style top to the body, meaning that I had live stitches to pick up for knitting the arms.  I’m reasonably happy with how it’s working out!

Now, I need to get back to it… sew the head, stuff the bear and attach the head, sew on the face, and then knit the dress and shoes, attach them, and then add the accesories to the bear.  All before tomorrow!
