Findlay & Flora love flowers
Findlay Bear and Flora Panda are celebrating springtime by searching for flower buds that are just coming up.
It’s so exciting to see the new leaves popping up,
Some of the flowers are absolutely tiny!
Springtime can be a chilly time of year, so Findlay and Flora are happy to wear their new sweaters and pants while they are questing for flowers.
The pattern for the sweater and pants is available in my etsy shop:
and for Findlay Bear and Flora Panda:
Happy springtime, happy flowers, happy knitting, and happy bears!

Yes! They can!

Edward and Anastasia Bear are 2 little bears that I have designed for ‘Your Knitting Life’ magazine (formerly known as ‘Knitting Today’), and they’ve been in each issue of the magazine since it started.
They are small… they’re 6 inches tall, and are knitted on 2.75 mm needles using Regia sock yarn.
Recently, on Ravelry, someone asked if Edward and Anastasia could be made larger, and the answer is, ‘You betcha’!
The humungous Edward Bear in the photo is 18 inches tall. If you knit with 8 or 9 mm needles and super bulky yarn or 2 strands of medium weight yarn held together, you will get one very large Edward Bear! Stitch through the hips to make them bendable.
I am so sorry, but the Edward and Anastasia patterns are no longer being made available by the publisher, and since I don’t own the copyright on them, I can’t give the pattern out. 😦
