Knitting for Bears

I had the idea that it would be sweet to knit a sweater for one of Miss M.'s many teddy bears. I found a pattern at Wee Wonderfuls, and printed out a picture to show to her. Her response? "They're not chilly because they have coats."

Okay kid, no sweaters for your bears.

Isis said...

That's hilarious! (And that's what she gets!!!)

i'm still giggling.

Haha well that is a very cute sweater even if she does not appreciate it.

Janet said...

At least she told you before you put the time in knitting. My kids would likely tell me after I spent three years working on the sweater.

slouching mom said...

Well. She's not wrong... ;)

Julie Pippert said...

Oh but don't let that stop you! With sweaters in hand she'll dress and undress them...right?

Sometimes that are just too d*mned smart for their own good.

Teryn said...

She's absolutely right -- kids are so practical. It is a cute sweater, though.

Oh, little sweaters! I think you should still knit away, if anything she can dress and undress them countless times...

Kelley said...

Ooooh you got told!!! My daughter does that all the time to me.


Did she roll her eyes like you were the most stupid person on earth??? I lurve that....

Thanks for telling me I rock :) You rock too cause you make sweaters for bears that don't need them

Even if she didn't appreciate the offer, we appreciate the anecdote.

Furrow said...

Ha! hilarious. and totally logical. you'll have to turn this thinking around on her when she is a teenager.

"you don't need makeup because people don't require camouflage to evade their enemies. just like bears don't need sweaters." or something like that.
