Hurrah- a link for Edward and Anastasia knitted teddy bears

I am thrilled to bits…. a lady on Ravelry found a link to Knitting Today archives.

This means that people who are looking for patterns for Edward and Anastasia teddy bears (that I designed for Knitting Today) can now get the patterns online.


I can’t send them out because the publisher owns the copyright.

I did a LOT of designing for Knitting Today, so there are lotsa other patterns in there from me, too.

Here’s the link: https://archive.org/search.php?query=knitting%20today

I also searched for ‘Your Knitting Life’ which was a different title to the same magazine, and the Yellowstone Edward and Anastasia came up:


Happy knitting!

Edward Bear has two new fans

The phone just rang, and it was my sister.

She went grocery shopping and found ‘Knitting Today’ on the stand.

She thought… hmmm… Isn’t this the magazine that has Noreen’s teddy bears?

She was delighted to flip it open and find Edward Bear in his new raincoat, boots and hat.

Another lady was browsing the knitting magazines, so Sis said:

“Excuse me…. I just have to show you what my sister does…”

and showed her the photo of Edward looking spiffy in his raincoat.

They had a lovely chat, and as my sister turned to toodle off, the lady reached over and said:

‘You don’t need to buy ALL the copies of the magazine! I want one, too!”

She reached over and plucked one of the copies out of Sis’s basket, and grinned.

And, then she went off to see Mom.

Well…. Mom fell madly in love with Edward Bear, so, guess what?

I need to knit an Edward Bear for our mother, and of course, one for my sister… and, oh yes, I promised one to my daughter, too….

Hmmm… I wonder if Sis would rather have an Anastasia Bear?

I need to stop everything and knit up some small, but wonderful bears for the women in my family.

We all have a well developed sense of whimsy, and Edward and Anastasia definitely are all about delight.

Off to grab my needles….
