Baby Bobbi Bear

Pattern: Blue Sky Alpacas Baby Bobbi Bear
Yarn: Blue Sky Organic Cotton in Sage, 1.5 skeins
Needles: Size 9 circulars
Notes: This is the softest cotton I have ever used. I tend to avoid cotton yarn because it hurts my hands and wrists to knit with, but this yarn didn't, and it is deliciously soft. It does shed like crazy though, I don't know if I'd use it to knit something I was going to wear. The pattern was so confusingly written, I didn't really know what part I was working on until I was pretty much finished. It all comes out right in the end though.

Too cute! He looks all squashy and cuddly.

Elinor: Thanks! He is definitely squashy and cuddly.

Roxieann: Thanks, I really like the color as well. I came in a while ago to pick up more cotton for another one, this time I picked a lighter color, so we'll see how that goes too.
