I don’t think I’ve mentioned it before, but I like to knit – and Bruno is my latest finished project. (Actually, I probably shouldn’t say “finished” since he doesn’t have a face yet, and he still has a stitch marker hanging off his cheek.)
But I finished stuffing him and stitching him up this morning, and I’m just so excited I have to post some photos.
He’s my first stuffed animal – most of what I knit is garments – scarves, shawls, sweaters, hats, socks, and so on. He’s nowhere near perfect, but I’m reasonably pleased with how he turned out, as a first attempt. But his back right leg is a little duck-toed, and his head is tilted sideways, and his ears aren’t quite on symmetrically.
Eventually (next week?) he’ll have eyes, a nose, and a mouth. Perhaps I’ll post finished-product photos then.
I told Maxwell to meet Bruno, and he was like huh? Bear? What bear?
Then he thought Bruno was a game …
… knock him down, get a treat? Please?
Sadly for Maxwell, that’s not quite the way it worked out. We worked it out, though, and now they are peacefully coexisting.
