Have y’all used the new Bundle feature in Ravelry? I love it! I started a New Favorites to help me keep up with all the projects I want to knit, including two (more – the blue blanket still has a l o n g way to go!) for the baby.

That Star Blanket is in the same book that the blue blanket is. I’m thinking about knitting it in Berroco Vintage (the pattern calls for a DK weight yarn) so it ends up a little bigger (and it comes in a beautiful gray that I know Katie loves).
And I want to knit a bear. I don’t think I’ve ever knit a toy before, but I’ve helped a few of my students with Ysolda’s patterns; that’s her bear Otto on the right. I recall it being a bit fiddle-y to get all the pieces seamlessly attached (in other words, we picked up lots of stitches) in the right spots and the face took a couple of tries. I found Vera this morning and based on the project gallery photos and comments, I think it’s a winner. If any of y’all have knit bears, do share! (or even if you haven’t, I’d still love to know your thoughts on good bear patterns!)
