The Pink Bears
I knit up a little bear from a pattern that I found online, back in March. There was a lot that I didn't like about the completed bear, so I wrote a new pattern. A friend ordered one, and wanted it to be pale pink. Lion Brand doesn't make the yarn I'd been using in pale pink, so I bought a bunch of white and dyed it. Unfortunately I didn't dye enough. I had knit everything but one leg when I ran out of yarn. I ripped out the leg, arms and body, and reknit them on smaller needles. When I got an order for a second pink bear I bought and dyed an extra skein. I completed pink bear number two with yarn to spare.
