Q&A with Cara Michelle

Gypsycream asked:
Miss Cara, your bears, all three, are delightful. such a good idea to use a fleecy yarn for babies, I do the same, that or a nice soft cotton. I really enjoyed reading your sentiments about the joy of creating and giving, so true and exactly how I feel when I'm creating a bear for with someone in mind to give it to. Thank you for creating these beautiful bears from my design, you have a natural gift of bear making.
Cara Michelle answered:
Thank you for creating such a lovely pattern. These bears were the hit of the Christmas gathering by the children - and one child even received a nintendo and the other, an ipad. Now this was suprising! I loved your pattern and my family members did too. Thanks for making our Christmas so memorable.
Meghan Criss asked:
This is really special! I never thought to knit toys but I have a friend who knits toys for the kids in her life....sounds challenging! (I'm kind of amazed!)
Cara Michelle answered:
You can do it! If you can increase and decrease (which I know you do because you made a sweater!) you can make toys. I really believe any knitter can knit toys, especially when using a great pattern.
