P1090797 smelly teds socks

Bit of a bizarre one this week – hat, scarf and boots for my sister’s teddy bear. He’s going on holiday with her and needed some clothes to keep him warm (one is apparently never too old for a teddy bear!). She sent the measurements to us. My mum knitted the scarf and hat, I crocheted his little boots for him. Double knit wool, and a nice simple project.
