I have been meaning to do a new blog update for awhile but have been busy and the time has just slipped past.
When I finished Finlay's knitted hat a few weeks ago I realized that it had been on my needles for about four months, I have just not been knitting.
I love knitting but it does get put on one side alot, it takes about eight hours to knit a little jersey, almost as long as it takes to make a bear. I also noticed that almost none of my bears in the last year have had a jersey.
I got some lovely colours of thread out and started a jersey. This is where you can see the blog post in progress, I was going to show you the start of a jersey and now I can show you a finished jersey and the start of the second one and as I type this I have actually started number three.
A little girl bear dressed in the pink jersey is almost ready for her debut. I have a bear on ebay whose auction is almost finished. This is Peaches, made using a very pretty apricot coloured fur.
I have also become totally addicted to Pinterest, you can follow the link on my sidebar, so many lovely images and just not enough time.
I hope everyone is having a good week. Winter has arrived here and I am really feeling the cold, we are lucky here, no snow just bad frost in the morning, a daytime temperature of 0 degrees C and a nighttime drop to -3 or -5 degrees.

It's amazing to me that you're able to knit something so small. What are you using for knitting needles? The little jerseys are adorable however your bears don't need a jersey to make them appealing.

I love your knittings Megan ♥ And I know it takes a long time to knit such a sweet little jersey. At the moment I'm busy knitting a tiny sweater myself, but for some reason my new piece doesn't want to wear it. Holy smokes, I had to do it 5 TIMES!!!!
Lucky you that you're not living in Holland. Our nighttime temps. dropped to -13. And I am wearing extra tights and at least 10 pair of socks to keep my feet warm. Phew. Hugs, Thea xxxx

Thank you for the lovely comments. MaddyRose, I use size 18 needles for knitting, (mainly available for lace and miniature dollhouse knitting)
Thea, I hope you keep warm, it is bad enough here i wouldn't want it to be any colder.
