Just wanted to share my new polar bear with you all. I am one proud mummy right now:D
This is "Thorvald"; a 23" plar bear made from Intercal's ivory alpaca (plug plug!). I am particularly pleased with his double neck joint - I have adjusted my usual pattern and I think I have now found a better shape which enables the head to sit naturally on the body. Hurrah - it has only taken me about six years to figure this out, haha!
Anyway, this lovely guy was a commission, sadly, so I shall only be enjoying his company for a few more days yet. I may have to make one for myself...
Christine, I'm even as I type imagineering a polar from some Intercal white alpaca I've got myself. Sadly, I'm afraid he won't be quite as spectacular as yours. Really a terrific bear, with amazing proportions, and he looks so solid and well balanced and just kerplunkity, which is something I strive for, but don't always achieve, in my cubs. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous!
Chris, I love that you schedule in a bear for yourself. I've done too little of this and that needs to change. So much hard work -- and yes, of course I'm grateful for the income -- but I also wish I had more of my little furry friends to cuddle myself, or to give to my kids, or my mom, etc. Good for you!!!
Do be sure to post pics of that panda when you're done.
