This Time With Knitting

While we're on the subject of stuffed animals, my teddy bear turned 50 this summer!  She'd been wearing the same store bought acrylic sweater and worn out blue jeans for many, many years, so I decided to make her a new outfit.  


I started the sweater back in the winter...I think...and finished it maybe in July?  Why oh why didn't I keep the blog current :-(.  I made her jeans just after the sweater...I think.  


The yarn is some leftover Jester and the buttons came from Auntie Reg's stash.  They are actual shell buttons and we decided we liked the colorful natural shell backs better than the polished white fronts.  The biggest design feature is that I knit this sweater in the round and did my first steek...and it worked :-D.
