Bears and Robots - Oh my!

Hello Everyone!

I've been a little knitting obsessed the last few days. I can't seem to ever have a balanced life--- I get excited about something and out goes everything else!

I made two different types of softies this week-- a bear and a robot!

This little bear is for my little 'nephew' (I'm an only child, so I count my cousin's kids as my niece and nephew). The little guy is turning 1! He doesn't live here, so I've never had a chance to meet him-- so I decided to be the fun 'Auntie' that sends him cards and makes him things.

I love this little bear... He has such a cute little expression and I'm so happy with how the colours came out! When you're sitting on your couch with a dozen balls of yarn in your lap-- it can be a daunting task! Here he is!

This little lady is my newest creation! She's Kamiko the Robot! I have a weird love of Japanese names... and the Japanese are much more advanced technologically... and make everything cute: hence Kamiko. (^_^) The name Kamiko also means "Superior Child"... and the nerd in me thought that was fun. She's only for children +3 with her safety eyes, and maybe even older with the buttons. I can always embroider eyes and use felt for buttons if the order is for a small child.

So, that's what I've been up to lately. I'm using knitting to blow off steam from the extremely frustrating class at Sprott Shaw right now. The material is all to do with business (I'm an MOA-- remind me why I need to take this?) and the multiple choice tests usually have two answers that are equally right. *happy place*

Hope everyone has a great weekend! Did you have productive weeks? If you're in Victoria, be sure to check out the Oak Bay Tea Party and watch the fireworks tonight!!
