In the Queue Wednesday

Recently, I ran across this book while browsing the internet and was captured - er, rather, captivated:
I have several good friends with babies, and I fell in love with the idea of weaving the "skin" and then sewing up a handmade stuffed animal for each of them. :)

Unfortunately, I purchased the book without looking into it very carefully, and my loom isn't big enough to make most of the patterns. (By "big", I mean the number of harnesses - my loom only has 4 and most of the patterns require 8.)

But one pattern that I fell in love with and that CAN be made with only 4 harnesses is this polar bear:

Isn't it cute? It's definitely next up in my weaving queue!

Now, my Christmas weaving project took 6 months longer than I thought it would... So, when will I get to (and finish) my polar bear family? Who knows? But, don't worry, I'll get to it! It's in my queue...

That polar bear will be so cute and loved by these babies.
