Hi, BAHS ’75 here. We have a lot in common. Love your blog. Read part of your book. Will read the rest as soon as I get a new Kindle. Hope life is not being nasty to you. Mine is but I am fixing it. – Peter
what a wonderful man you are, this will have taken perseverance and staying power, especially as it is knitting, and it is easy for people to knock knitting, way to go …. from a granny in UK.xxx
Love your teddy bears. Wanted to buy one for my great grandson but it said they were all sold out :(. Do you have a waiting list? I especially like te one you said saved you. Thanks and God bless you. Karen
Hi there! I love your work. I have left a post on your facebook page but I then read that here is probably the best place to contact you. I was wondering if you could possibly make me a bear please? My mother in law has been looking to get a bear for my son in memory of his great grandfather. As he was in the British navy during WW2 I was wondering if you could make my bear wearing a navy uniform (white shirt, navy neckerchief and navy trousers)? If this is not possible I would still like to purchase a bear. However if a navy bear would be possible, how much would I be looking at to buy and have sent to New Zealand?? Keep up the good work! Look forward to hearing from you!! Cheers, Faye x
Lovely work! I have issues with counting (I can’t keep track) so I crochet instead and mark the beginning of the round with a bobby pin. And I love the blog post about starbucks and cops! My husband saw it and posted it on my Facebook page.
Love your story and love your work! I’m a fan and now a follower.
you’re great! I love your teddy bear, wish I can make it too
I love knitting and crocheting, love your story in Starbucks my favourite coffee shop!! when i crochet i feel productive and elated. Crocheting lifts my mood, love it….
You are JOY.
12 years ago I was struggling with infertility at nearly 40. I became deeply depressed when doctors told me I had only a remote chance of getting pregnant & having a child. One day husband started bringing me what he called “Feel Better Bears” to help me feel better. It did. When I saw the love in the faces of those with your bears – I connected immediately! Yours truly are Feel Better Bears! When you hold such a lovingly made & given creature, you can’t help but feel better. I ended up
What a joy to have found you and your writing, your awesome writing, I like your way with words. You made me laugh with the Starbucks story and cry with your video, that shouldn’t happen but it did and I hope we can all move on from there. We can’t start over and make a new beginning but we can start from here and make a new ending The Teddys are fantastic what a great idea together with your writing you should be more than encouraged. I am also a knitter and know what 16 hours a day of knitting is like, I usually go on until I finish the sweater or whatever until it is done.
One thing I noted is that I think you could charge more for your Teddys. I see craft sales and they sell for more, don’t know what you think about that or if you want to make it manageable for more folks at the price they are now. There is also your expenses to paypal and shipping. I just want to see you doing really well not just getting by. Thank you for the inspiration of doing something so worth while it is a pleasure to have found you.
BIG TEDDY HUGZ
(not hitting on you I am old enough to be your Mom)
Ok, big boy, can you do Emily Orton’s circular cast on? I can’t and I am jealous because you can use dp needles! Took me untl 40 to “come out” as a male knitter in public. Love your work; your attitude even more. Lots of kindness and warmth.
Delightful to see a man knitting! I am an 81 year old gal who began knitting in 3rd grade when our class learned to knit squares which the Red Cross ladies crocheted together to make blankets and I never stopped — love it — it’s what keeps me going & gives me satisfaction. Keep it up!
Looks like your knitting has made a lot of people happy.
Love the bears! Wonderful things that you do! Just looking at the bears make me happy
Love all this – the pictures, the bears, the story – going to knit one and call it Gregory
