Lincolns bear

Well I didn't work on Apple today... didn't even look at it .
I have been seeing bobbi bear and baby bobbi popping up all over the net, since I don't have the patience to wait for a pattern to come by snail mail I found a free pattern online
I couldn't for the life of me figure out the top of the head how it was written so I made my own by using a figure 8 cast on. I think if I make it again I'll make the head fatter. it's too skinny, looks like a cat to me. I started him around noonish today and just finished sewing on the "L"
a few mins ago. I also added a few rows to the legs and arms.. and gave him some fat paws.
I think he's quite cute.. and I used the same yarn as Apple so they'll be a pair for little Lincoln.
The sweater is actually a lilac purple, it looks more blue in the pic!??!
Bear is 8 inches tall

and see he's anatomically correct:
I had a call from my cuz Jenn today too.. was phoning to thank me for the sweater for Keagan.
She says it fits, and it so cute on him...
I'm glad, I was a little worried that she wouldn't like it...
Can't wait for a pic with it on him!!
I still have 2 days left in my weekend( I get Monday off too).. so tomorrow is Apple time...
I have to get it done, the baby shower is next weekend.
Wish me luck... it's a boring knit and I don't really want to work on it.
nighty nite
