Beary Cute

I finshed the back of Bridie last night as I watched US Open tennis. I've got that lattice pattern memorized now. I'm getting ready to cast on for the fronts.

A friend's baby is having her first birthday party today and I made this little stuffed bear for her from Debbie Bliss' Toy Knits book. Do you see those boots the bear is wearing? Those aren't just regular old boots, they're Wellingtons, according to the pattern. That cracks me up. It turned out much better than I thought it would. It looks cute even.
