J Bear

Tonight I finished my J Bear, whom I named Jason.

Jason!

Jason!

Unlike most of my recent bears, I didn’t stick to two yarns for striping, but I tried to use up  scraps of many colors.  It’s fun to knit from scraps, it’s like a trip down memory lane.

Jason joins four other bears, which makes 5 for me to send off!

And here they are without their hoods!

Bald heads!

Left to right are Gloria, Frank Junior, Henry, Isaac, and Jason.  I mixed up F and G.  Oops.

I tried something new starting with Isaac.  I find that the hoods I make are pointy, and to avoid this, I started stitching a straight line about 1/2 inch from the point of the hood, and it works!

A solution.

A solution.

Here you can see the results from the back; the stitched hoods are less pointy.  It’s probably not a big deal, but it makes a big difference to me.  :0
