Teacher present

For my son's teacher this year, I made the Lion Brand graduation bear (http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80285AD.html?noImages=). He's not graduating, but I thought it looked like something for a teacher. I used old yarn from my stash (actually, I think it is from my Mom's stash so no telling how old it is!), and after doing the head, body, and arms, I decided I was definitely going to run out. And they don't make that kind anymore. So I turned the arms into the legs and made smaller arms. Also, he really needed something, so I made him a little sweater in the school's colors to match his mortar board. I am not totally thrilled with him, but eh, he'll do. I know - terrible attitude, but I don't have a lot of time to make him better right now. I need to move on to making something for a swap at the Estes Park Wool Market with some Ravelry friends.
