a bear for zia

Posted on May 19th, 2012 by mountain girl  |  2 Comments »

With all the baby preparations going on around here, Zia has been excited, helpful, and very patient. But when I finished this little bear, she said, “Mamma, do you think I could have this bear, and we could make another one for the baby?

Yes, I think we could do that.

Already the bear has a dandelion and a name, Pink Watermelon.

I’m glad she wanted this bear. It’s a girly bear, and it would have been given away anyway if we have a baby boy.

Besides, a four-and-a-half-year-old can give a bear a lot more loving than a new baby can.

Note: Zia’s bear was adapted from the Cashmere Teddy Bear pattern in Simple Knits for Cherished Babies.

    And after her great “sighting” the other day, her new bear seems appropriate!
