Sent out my new batch of bears today; here are pics of them in more detail:
I love how they turn out different shapes and sizes depending on the stitch patterns I choose. Right now I'm into bears with stockinette-stitch fur and garter-stitch clothes - the stockinette is easier to sew faces onto, and the garter makes them shorter and chubbier. I've made a project of using up the heavy-worsted-weight, fuzzy novelty yarn that I received as a donation; you can see some of it in the sweater of the black bear in the first photo. I like this yarn so much that I've started making bears wearing jumpsuits out of it. See next entry.
