Q&A with Mary Geehan

Davesmom asked:
I love your bears. This one does seem as hairy as the others are, was it a different yarn? I don't knit very well. Is there any purple sticthes in this pattern?
Mary Geehan answered:
Hi Daves mom, I did not design these bears, the lady below, Gypsycream is the designer, I only knit one bear, but plan on doing more. I used what's called Eyelash yarn, but looking at the bears that the designer has knit probably any long haired yarn would work, I even noticed she has done one in a short fiber yarn.
Davesmom asked:
purpling is kind of knitting stitch. I have no problem with the knit stitch but the purple stitch I often drop stitches for some reason.
Mary Geehan answered:
Wow, I have been knitting since I was about 10 yrs old, and I have never heard of the purple stitch, coming from Ireland the only stitch I can think of similar to knit is what I call moss stitch, that's where one row, you knit one purl one, and reverse on the second row.
Davesmom asked:
I misspelt the word purl.
