Creative Juices = a pretty cool teddy bear!

I have been so busy lately I haven't had a chance to do much blogging.  I am taking an online graduate course which is kicking my butt.  Work has been kicking my ass.  Students are taking the Iowa Test of Basic Skills next week and scheduling has become such a headache I have been having dreams of ITBS... wait they are more like nightmares.  

I decided I need some crafty time to center myself.  One of the businesses I sell jewelry at is having an open house so I went into crafting mode by making 100+ earrings and some malas and necklaces, but that just wasn't doing it for me...

So, when a bloggy friend, mama dawg, asked about a knit animal for her daughters birthday I got a little giddy.  I haven't knit for a while so I was up to the challenge.  I found an awesome teddy bear pattern and went to town.  This is what I came up with.

I absolutely love him/her.  It was so quick and easy I may have to make myself one.  But, what would the monkeys think about that?

Your input would be greatly appreciated!!!
