Now I know that for a lot of you, this is no big deal, being a very basic item. But this is the first time I have ever tried knitting anything without any specific written pattern; and then to have it look just the way I I had pictured it - well, I was really excited. I popped it in the mail, and my niece La Liz reports that a) it fits, b) he loves it, and c) she is sending me a picture of him wearing it (which of course you can expect to see here at some point)!
In the meantime, you'll have to settle for a shot of Barnsie, the Barnes and Noble Bear, modeling it.**
**As you can see, it's too big for him, but Barnsie is nothing if not a good sport.
