He's finally finished. I bought this kit after falling in love with him on QVC and wanted to give him to my daughter when she was born as he comes with a little Adoption Certificate that you can fill in. Needless the say, the knitting part got done really quickly but I left the dreaded sewing up for months.
My daughter is now 20 months old and Popcorn bear is finally finished - here he is and he looks so cute that I have now added him to some of the pictures on my website as a kind of Mascot.
I think I need to trim the fur around the eyes a bit don't you?
On a technical note - knitting with the eyelash yarn was horrible as I couldn't see the increases and decreases clearly enough - even counting the rows was difficult. I don't normally use row counters or stitch markers but if I ever do anything in this kind of yarn again, I'm going to use both. I can't tell you how many times I dropped stitches and couldn't find them, nor how many times I lost count of the row number and had to start the piece again!! Still he's really cute and has his own little blankie to cuddle too!!
