ok, so i decided i wanted to learn to knit again.  i decided to start with the cute and fluffy rocky the grizzly bear!

He is knitted all in one piece (like a skin).  Unfortunately he is not very photogenic due to being massively fluffy (i actually had to give him a haircut once i'd finished as you couldn't see his legs!).  I've also ordered some eyes as you can't see the ones i stitched... If I did him again, I would use slightly less fluffy wool, and possibly put some rice or something in the feet to help him stand - he does stand now but has a tendency to topple!   He was great to learn with though as the fluffiness means you can't see any dropped stitches etc - a great practice piece!  What do you guys think?

At first I thought this was a joke- first attempt at knitting and the ball of yarn got tangled kind of joke!

Please try more pictures Id love to see his face!
