The perfect pair! Thanks for posting, Witzend. Beautiful workmanship for a very worthwhile cause which must lead to a lot of satisfaction.

Joane123 Thu 17-Nov-22 22:17:06

They are gorgeous Witzend.

Lovely Witzend!

Beautiful work. I love big Ted’s smile.

Witzend Thu 17-Nov-22 22:28:12

Thank you all.
Apart from the mouth pocket, which is a bit of a pick-up-and-knit faff, Ted is actually quite quick and easy - 2 strands of DK on big fat needles.

How lovely, clever lady👏🏻

Witzend Fri 18-Nov-22 13:04:46

Thank you, Downtoearth - the chair is a really old one inherited from the ILs - we had it re-covered several years ago. It’s certainly rather cheerier than the former mid-blue Dralon!

Fabulous! You are so talented.

You clever old stick! smile
That's saying here, not an insult.

Your animals always have character.

Makes me wish I could knit.

They're lovely - Like the idea of the matching puppet ❤

They’re so cute!
Where do you post them off to?

Witzend Wed 23-Nov-22 08:47:16

Ali23, it’s a charity that sends them off to children’s therapists all over the U.K. The person who runs it invariably has a huge waiting list.

Namsnanny Wed 23-Nov-22 10:49:15

Thanks for posting the finished Ted Witzend what a lovely pair they make.
So, your next project is...?

Witzend Wed 23-Nov-22 17:05:02

Probably another Big Fat Ted, Namsnanny - they seem to be popular, plus I still have plenty of the right yarn.

silverlining48 Wed 23-Nov-22 17:34:33

How clever to be able to make such lovely things. Well done.

Namsnanny Thu 24-Nov-22 10:13:59

I look forward to your knitting updates witzendsmile
