The Big Push

1157453_10201849587828337_1705609897_nStill working up a ton of bears, still trying to get rent money together… a bad way. I still have quite a few bears to adopt out to make rent.

So, just before the Labor Day weekend started I had more offers, in case you didn’t want to adopt one of my teddy bears. (But, if you DO wanna adopt one click here. I still need to get 10 more adopted to make rent).

OR! You can MAKE a bear of your own!Β  Knit yourself a cute little teddy bear with my pattern here.

I’m working on a crochet version of the pattern that should be ready in a few weeks.

And I decided I’d offer a PDF copy of “Mad Man Knitting -or- The Waiter and the Fly” for free. Yeah! Click here if you wanna read it: MadManKnitting

I just hope you toss a little something into my yarn bowl for reading it. Just click the donate button below.

So, my bears, my patterns, my book…..I think I can get rent covered!

(Again, it amazes me that if everyone who read this blog chipped in $1 I’d have my expenses covered for 2 months. 2 MONTHS!!!!)

I hope everyone had a safe holiday….and that Autumn will be here soon.

And don’t forget to vote for me at the Martha Stewart American Made site!



  1. Okay, Gregory, I want two more bears. I need the Bear for the Ladies, since it is pink and my sister doesn’t have one of your bears yet. Also, it will be a way for us to share our love for each other as she prepares to move back to Michigan (of all places, LOL!). I would like to get one of the bears labeled a Bear for Boyhood – one of the striped ones that look really cool. Unfortunately, I can’t do any ordering until Thursday of this week. Hold on – I’ll be ordering then!

  2. Hi Gregory! I bought the book on my Kindle, loved it..just bought the original bear pattern…I’m a beginner so doubt I’m ready to attempt it..but wanted to support you.
    hugs, Tony

  3. I of course voted for you, have been every day six times each day πŸ™‚ and hopefully everyone would drop a dollar your way once a day every month. I’m going to do that when I can’t buy a pattern. That’s a small $12 dollars a year, pizza costs more and is not as good. So what do you say fellow readers? Can’t we all spare the dollar a month for our friend?

  4. Hi Gregory. I ordered a bear a while back for my godson for Christmas. I wondered if I placed another order for one for my niece if you could ship them together as they’re coming to the UK?

  5. I really enjoyed reading your book, thank you! I received my bear a few weeks ago and I just love him! I can’t look at him and not smile. I have given a donation, hopefully it will help out a little. Hope you have a great day and thx for the voting reminders!
