I'm not a good knitter but sooooo wanted to do something for our tenth grandchild due early January. She will be the first child of our son Drew and lovely daughter in law Kelly. My mother knit a teddy for Drew when he was very small and so I thought I might keep up the tradition and knit one for this baby, though for health and safety concerns (eyes, nose small parts etc, baby will probably not be able to play with it until three years old...I'm not sure! I hope Mr Floppy will be able to sit some where in baby's view until that time. I've called it Mr Floppy for obvious reasons. He is nice and soft and not stuffed too full so that he is rigid but remains nice and floppy.
We have had snow blizzards today and with Christmas decorations now around the hearth its lovely to be at home enjoying being cosy. Mr Floppy seems to like sitting on the mantle piece in the midst of all the good cheer. I hope he will like his new home and new human baby friend. It won't be long now !
