Easy Knitted Bears: Knitting patterns for bears and outfits

Learn to knit your own gorgeous bears with these easy-to-follow knitting patterns from bestselling knitting writer Fiona Goble. The patterns are suitable for almost everyone, whether adventurous beginner or expert. You can create a single-colour bear, a two-tone bear, a striped bear and even a panda - all from one basic pattern. There are also instructions to create a host of clothes, including bride & groom outfits, a graduation outfit, a Santa costume, a ballet outfit, and a sports outfit. If you're after a cute dress, nightshirt, coat, hat, sweater or dungarees - you'll find patterns for these, too. The designs can be personalized and you can 'mix and match' items to create the perfect gift, not just for new babies and children, but for all bear lovers and almost any occasion! The teddy bears and outfits are all knitted using light worsted/double knitting/8-ply yarn and size US3 (3.25mm) straight knitting needles. The bears are about 7in/18cm tall. The patterns include both US and UK knitting terms.



More years' ago than I now care to remember! My Mum's twin sister Sheelagh taught me when I was about seven years old, just before she emigrated from the UK to Canada.


Partly from the toys and dolls I loved when I was little, but I'm also as addicted to online browsing all the beautiful creative websites out there as anyone else.


With toys and dolls, which are my knitting of choice, it's about seeing the little creatures develop their own personality when you sew them together and embroider the features. I'm always amazed that you can create something so cute from just some oddments of yarn and a pair of needles. There's a bit of effort needed too... but really, not that much.


Like any skill, knitting takes a bit of patience. So start with something small. Think baby hats, fingerless mitts or a knitted lavender bag... definitely not a scarf. They're simple but they take too long for beginners. And choose some lovely yarn. If you're putting in all that effort, you'll appreciate it!


Well it has to be my Knit Your Own Royal Wedding back in 2011 when William and Kate tied the knot. Suddenly I found myself being interviewed by newspapers and magazines across the world... I still find it hard to believe. And frankly, it's going to be hard for me to top that!


Apart from some pretty dodgy dolls' clothes when I was about eight, it was a pink and blue striped owl. I still have it perched on a shelf in my little work room upstairs. The first knitting book I designed was called Knitivity which was a knitted nativity.


I'm actually quite a good improviser but I was quite annoyed recently when I lost one of my favourite very short knitting needles which are ideal for knitting small items. Thankfully my son eventually found it by accident, behind my row of knitting reference books.


I love simple combinations of stitches like wide ribbing stitch and waffle stitch. They've got enough interest to keep you alert but are still simple enough to keep mistakes and unravelling to a minimum.


Well there's the obvious one of knots in a ball of yarn that you don't see till you're mid-row. But I also don't much like super-shaggy yarns because you can't usually see where you've made a mistake and they're impossible to unravel!

The cleanup isn't magic. The magic lies in the process itself, not the tidy house. It is the process itself that will change the "old you" into the "new you".

Your new you will be:

a person who puts his or her life into perspective in terms of the past, present and future

a person who is more decisive than ever before

a person who has sense of self-worth- a self-worth that comes from within

There have been many who have tried this process and failed. They found it difficult once they embarked upon the task. That is why this experience really is transformative. And transformation is never easy. Do you really want to transform yourself? It is well worth the journey if you don't shy from a challenge.

The Cat Rescue Diaries: 56 True Life Stories of Cats Who Found Their Forever Homes, and the People Who Saved Them

Thousands of years ago, a cat purred, and humans listened. We were fascinated. Today, we're still fascinated by the purr, but in many cases, we've let our feline companions down. There are millions of homeless and hungry cats. These are but a few of the stories of the lucky ones, rescued from bad situations and given a place on easy street.

You'll be inspired, you'll be awed, and you'll say "awww" over stories about cats like these:

Ms. Sammy, the cat delivered to her "furever" home by the coroner.

Lima, the kitty with a horribly infected tail, but who never stopped purring in appreciation of her human's efforts to help her get well.

Hanuko, the rescue with two human mommies.

From tales of cats rescued from a warehouse, a barn, and even a coffee can, to heartwarming stories of feline determination and human compassion, every story in The Cat Rescue Diaries is evidence of what happens when good people seek out the purr and find their "purrfect" feline match.

A Little Bit of Everything For Dummies

Welcome to a special e-book from a very special series celebrating a very special anniversary!

Twenty-five years, ago the very first For Dummies book, DOS For Dummies, was published in the United States. From that first printing of that first book came a series unlike anything in the publishing world, one that's global in both geography -- we've been published worldwide in more than 30 languages -- and in coverage. Go to any section of any bookstore and you'll see the familiar yellow-and-black covers, or go online and find an array of electronic products that the series has spawned. All promise an easy-to-understand approach to help you get where you want to go. That's who the For Dummies series is all about, really -- you.

So when it came time to decide whom to invite to our 25th birthday party, the answer was easy: We're inviting you.

No single volume can hope to summarize what thousands of titles have meant to millions of readers over the years, and we don't make any claim to do that in this e-book. Rather, this e-book celebrates the breadth and depth of the For Dummies series, offering 20 chapters from a list of books compiled by our global colleagues at John Wiley & Sons.

Eating Clean, Meditation, Compassion Focused Therapy, Nutrition, Windows 10, Coding, iPhone for Seniors, GoPro Cameras, Business Plans Kit, Office 2016, Small Business Marketing Strategies, Investing, Blogging, Facebook, eBay, LinkedIn, Guitar, Bridge, Chess and Digital Photography.

Green Living - Saving Water: Water your Garden while Conserving our Water Supply

Water is one of this earth's most precious resources. Our world is one large network of water flow, and we should each do our part to conserve the water and keep it clean! While we think about the oceans being full of billions of gallons of water, it's important to remember that we cannot drink salt water. When you look solely at the amount of drinkable water on the planet, only 1% of the water on our planet is water we could drink. It's important that we preserve this water as much as possible.

Think of how you use water each day. Are you careful with it, to use only what you need? Do you ensure that the water is not polluted or contaminated as it heads back out into the world?

These practical tips will help you learn how to use water more efficiently and become a custodian of the water which is entrusted to your care. Some of the suggestions are easy while others might involve a bit more work. No matter where you currently fall in the scale of saving water, you'll find something here to give a try!

IRONING MADE EASY: The Far Easier Way to Iron (House Cleaning, Decluttering, and Organizing Made Easy Book 1)

Stop struggling with the ironing. Do it the easier way.

I used to find ironing hard.

I hated it. I particularly hated ironing leggings as new creases used to form on the other side from the iron itself. They were a real pain.

Over time I discovered what worked better. The main thing is the lifting method. Combined with the other things I do, ironing is now a lot easier and faster.

Even though this is still not my most favorite thing, I find it a breeze compared to what it used to be like.

The Complete Guide to Under Cabinet Lighting

Today, the kitchen has to be multifunctional. It's not only a place to prepare and eat food, but also a place to relax, a place to entertain, and a place to enjoy. It should be inviting, bright, functional, and easy to control. The right kitchen lighting will help you stay clean, organized, and safe, while letting you create the perfect atmosphere for an early morning baking frenzy, board games with the kids on a rainy afternoon, or spending a couple's night in.

Most of all, light layering (having multiple light sources for different purposes) is the most important, all-encompassing rule in kitchen lighting design. A single light source never does any space justice. You need different sources of light for different purposes. Ambient lighting, task lighting, accent lighting, safety lighting, and mood lighting are all essential parts of great kitchen design.

This book will first and foremost address task lighting in the kitchen.

Under cabinet lights are the most popular, attractive, and handy kind of task lighting for the kitchen. Lighting designers agree that the path to any beautiful, functional kitchen starts with excellent task lights. Kitchen task lights have one simple purpose - to help you out. When you really need to get down to business, to cook a gourmet dinner or finally scrub down those countertops, task lights allow you to see.

In this book, you'll learn how to get that perfect lighting in your own kitchen. You'll discover what kind of under cabinet lights will work best for your space, the ins and outs of every light source and fixture style, and even what kind of lights will work best with your personality. Then, move on to step-by-step instructions on how to layout, install, and operate your under cabinet lights.

Already have under cabinet lights in your kitchen? Just flip over to the maintenance section to learn what to expect from your lights over time, and how to fix common problems that may come up.

You may also want to note that under cabinet lights work in areas other than the kitchen - offices, labs, workstations, even in outdoor cooking areas.

Foraging All Year Round: Edible Herbs and Plants

Welcome to Foraging All Year Round: Edible Herbs and Plants, a book focused on the northern parts of the world to provide you with a collection of foods that grow during different times of the year. This book can be used as a gardening tool or a as needed survival guide for immediate foods in your area as one can always bolster their survival rate with more knowledge about their surroundings.

In the first chapter we'll go over prep and in this section we'll cover such items as:

Why nuts and seeds should almost always not be what you eat unless you roast them.

What parts of plants you should avoid in general to prevent yourself from pooping yourself to death.

Which foods you should stay away from if you're trying to ensure the safety of the food.

How to inspect a plant and how to generally make most edible plants actually edible as most do not come automatically edible.

In the next section, we'll go over a very extensive list of plants that you can usually identify very easily that are also edible. We'll go over what each one should generally look like and how to identify the plant. For a few of them, suggestions are made on how to not confuse them with other plants that may look similar but are extremely deadly. A good example of this is the Wild Carrot, which has a top flower that can be confused with Hemlock or Water Hemlock, which are some of the most poisonous plants on the planet.

The last two sections will cover some of the more difficult types of plants, such as edible poisonous plants and the edible but also medicinal plants. We'll go over such plants as:

Thistles and Nettles, which are edible after being boiled but only certain kinds and we'll help you identify which ones.

What parts of a wild cherry you shouldn't eat if you want to live.

Some plants that can act as Neosporin, like Pine Trees and Plantains.

This book attempts to cover a lot of the plants while also making sure that what you are eating is safe and that you can identify the safe plants to eat. After all, if you cannot properly identify the safe plants then you are playing Plant Roulette.

The Cat Who Sang & Other Stories of Rescued Pets

This is a collection of stories about animals at Katie's Place, a small-animal shelter specializing in last-hope cases. Hundreds of animals have given volunteers years of joy and anguish. Some recovered against all odds and found homes. Some lived out their lives in shelter care. Each had a profound effect on the people who knew them. Among them was curmudgeonly Cubby who swatted his tail for waving in his face, and elderly Hannah who defended a volunteer under attack. Devilish Kris Kringle stole the latch pins for cages and delighted in watching people search for them. The job is a challenge but each volunteer would do it again in a heartbeat. If you enjoy the book, please adopt from your local shelter or volunteer, or take them some pet food or old towels.

Antoinette's Christmas Mantel: Season One: A Parade in the Village

NOTE: This pictorial ebook contains large images and is designed to be viewed on an actual tablet, such as an Android or iPad with the Kindle App installed. Viewing it on a tablet will allow the images to be enlarged and explored.

I began arranging Christmas villages on our mantel a few years ago, mostly because villages are harder to set up under a tree, and also to keep our Godzilla cats from stomping them. The fragile cardboard houses are from around 1930 pre-war Japan, and the tiny figures (tin Zinnfiguren) are mostly pre-war Germany. As satisfying as this ephemeral holiday art is to create, I found that it needed a story. I began my Christmas tale with this mantel tableau and have added characters and their stories to it every year for a decade since then.

A Parade in the Village

Each Christmas when I begin to assemble my antique village, I run into the same old problem: the mantel can only fit a dozen or so houses, and over time I have collected more than that. So every year I have to leave well-loved houses and tin figures in their storage boxes, even though Christmas should be their season to come alive. For this mantel, I've assembled fourteen of my very favorite Japanese cardboard houses, along with the cast of tin characters that people them. No Hawthorne, Lemax, or Dept. 56 houses in this village -- just an assortment of sweet, dusty, slightly tattered cardboard structures that have somehow managed to survive three quarters of a century without getting crushed and tossed. Read and enjoy!

Sunlight Hibernation for Cactus Protecting Your Cactus in the Winter Planting Your Cactus Offsets How to grow Cacti from Cuttings Cactus as Food Diseases and pests Appendix Cactus clubs Author Bio Introduction For all those people who have confronted a prickly pear, at least once in their lives, cacti are boring spiny plants. Also, cactus plants have long been the subject of a superstition that any house, which has cactus growing in it is going to be filled up with strife and trouble and arguments. That is because of the spines of the cactus which are known as spikes promote ill feeling. There is something so odd about a cactus plant that it is often difficult until you grow them yourself to believe that these really belong to the plant kingdom. Historically, how many pioneer explorers of the desert areas in America saw them in the twilight and thought stories of monsters with their arms outstretched, and no heads, who turned into plants in the desert in the morning. No wonder, these giants which can grow up to 63 feet have always been the subject for legends. Even today, most of us are told tales about the cactus, which many of us half believe. Some of us have heard that cacti are poisonous. Other people are going to tell us that cacti flower only once in 100 years, and only when the area is subjected to rain. The first tale is totally and true. The second tale is also untrue because certain species of cacti will flower, almost every year, if given proper cultivation and care. Cactuses, also known as cacti belong to the family Opuntiaceae. Many of these plant varieties have lost true leaves, but they still have fluted and ribbed stems. The stems store

Woodworking: Complete Woodworking Guide for Beginner’s With Step by Step Instructions: Volume 1

WOODWORKING Complete Woodworking Guide for Beginner's With Step-by-Step Instructions I found my way into fine woodworking shortly after graduating college, in 2003. I took a 2 week introduction to the fundamentals of fine woodworking at Boston's North Bennet Street School. From there, I spent 3 years working at woodworking specialty retail stores, went to North Bennet full time for 2 more years, and set up shop as a custom furniture maker, which lasted for just over 7 years. Woodworking, on many levels, is an ongoing process of reduction and refinement: Big trees into big boards, into smaller boards, into smaller pieces. Grinding cutting tools, and then honing, and polishing the edges. Rough shaping, scraping and filing of wood, followed by coarse sanding, and on into finer grits. And, the progression of learning the rough basics, and the ongoing refining what you know, and what you can do. The purpose of this book is to provide a coarse introduction to getting into the hobby. I assume that you'll seek out other sources of information as the need arises. Woodworking as a craft spans thousands of years, and I couldn't hope to cover all that ground. Books have been published on the topic for centuries. Taunton Press started printing Fine Wood Working 40 years ago, and many other magazines have since come and gone, or showed up and stayed. And the internet, bless its tainted soul, has been ranting and raving at an exponential rate about just about anything for over 20 years. Information overload is a real risk, especially on the internet, and I can't stress enough that it's something to be careful of. But in the end, any real learning that occurs will happen at the bench, as you feel for yourself how your tools are working. You'll understand more as you see how the project comes together. You'll get better at visualizing objects, and processes, in three dimensions, as you make the things with your own hands. The printed word can only convey so much, and it doesn't ho

Used bookshops often have cats roaming their aisles, sleeping on their book stacks or sleeping on their customers. Here is a novel all about one bookshop and its cats, Stomper and Buglit; and about Kris, a 12-year-old boy who apprentices in the shop. Kris is a foster child getting used to a new family, and the cats in the bookshop are getting used to being fostered for the shelter until their own new families bring them home. Stomper, Buglit and Kris all get into trouble, have some wild adventures, and find out just what having a family really means. This is the first book in the Turning Pages series of used bookshop novels. Book 2, The Find of a Lifetime: Another Tale of Used Books and Cats, is now available. Shelve Under C's cozy used & rare bookshop, its owners the O'Malleys, its apprentice, its customers and, especially, its cats are the beating heart of this novel. The main stars of the story are Stomper and Buglit. Well, that's what they would tell you, anyway. Stomper is a grump, but he may be hiding a tender middle. Buglit was new to the bookshop. She missed her former owner, but Mrs. O'Malley made her life less lonesome and Buglit, in return, became very important to the bookshop owners in some funny and surprising ways. Kris tried hard to fit into his new foster family, but even after several months he still felt like an outsider.
