Meet Istvan


Teddy Bear, Completed
Originally uploaded by panopticon.

The teddy bear met his new owner last night and it appears that there is, indeed, chemistry. He even seems to be smiling. I suppose I would be, too, if I'd been in pieces for two weeks and then finally got my head and limbs attached.

He left this morning for his new home. I admit to feeling slightly post-partum, though it's not like I won't see him frequently.

I wondered how he was getting on, and then this arrived via e-mail:


He has been christened Istvan, and it looks to me like he's adjusting nicely. And apparently he's a Prince fan. Who knew?

He looks much happier now that he's all together. A very impressive knit for sure; you must be quite proud of him.

markknitz said...

yea! he's great and seems very happy in his new rock and roll home. hanging out with Janis from Dr. Teeth's Electric Mayhem. that's livin' the life!

Calvin said...

Great job, Franklin. It looks fantastic!! Janis is one of my favorite characters from "The Muppet Show". Of course, Miss Piggy being my favorite.

Jon said...

How adorable...Janis is very lucky to have such a sweet boyfriend. LOL

sep said...

ohhh, thanks, I'm much relieved to see all his parts together!

who knew, he was straight? Now I'm wondering about all those mittens I've given away...

and cudos to you two for not putting clothes on him, bears are much better looking au naturel :)

Cheryl said...

Istvan looks content...You did a wonderful job on him...a true labor of love....

Sorka said...

Awesome! He looks great!Good job! If I could only knit as well!!

Colleen said...

Franklin, that bear is awesome. But, then again, I wonder if there's anything you do that's NOT awesome? If so, I haven't seen it, yet. xoxo

goblinbox said...

He's adorable!

And there's absolutely nothing wrong with a fondness for Prince, that sexy motherf&*er! Funk on, Istvan!

Felicia said...

He's gorgeous! And, I'm also quite surprised I can still remember Janis, and Dr. Teeth!

You know, (here I go, pimping out the charities) there is a charity called www.teddiesfortragedies.org. I'm not hinting or anything, but your knitting skills are masterful!

Prince is the bomb. Here's what I love about Prince, besides his music. If you ask a bunch of guitarists who is their favorite musician, you will typically get the following four names:

BB King
Eric Clapton
Jimi Hendrix
Prince

John Popper, Slash, and one of the guitarists from Adema all say the same thing about Prince; lick for lick, no one is as creative or as talented as Prince on the guitar.

I digress. Istvan certainly has taste, wearing a Prince button. He's a good looking fellow, with or without the button!

James said...

Istvan has become a tall dark hansome foreigner... all he needs to do now is speak in a foreign language and he'll enrapture anyone.

Lee Ann said...

Yowsa, that bear is hanging with some swanky company...

Where's Animal? :-) (I always had a thing for those crazy drummers...though the guitarists are far sexier...)

I always wanted my hair to swing like Janis. Ahem. Not that this applies to you, but having a child f*ed that plan up completely. Curls, man. Unstraightenable curls. Ah well. I can at the very least wear the belly button top and hope no one's looking too closely....

Buzz said...

So do you think Istvan speks with a forign accent perhaps?

MikKnits said...

Aloha Franklin! Your bear is "miki`oe" (excellently made). You should be so proud. I hope you don't have postpartum issues. (Cruise vs. Shields) LOL Keep up the great work.

Are there people who aren't Prince fans?

birdfarm said...

I think the Prince button (in addition to revealing excellent taste in music) may also call into question Sir Edwin's assumption that Istvan is straight. Perhaps he's announcing (in a coy sort of way) that although he is currently on the arm of the lovely Janis, he wouldn't kick Kermy out of bed either...

Or perhaps we're all reading way too much into this. Maybe Prince is just his hero, and Janis is just his friend.

Though that is a mischievous little smile. We'll have to wait & see what C can tell us about Istvan's future adventures.

Dan said...

Janis and Dr. Teeth!! Oh man! What ever happened to them?!? God I loved their psychedelic period.

But seriously, the teddy bear looks like its enjoying its new digs.

Happy Fourth!

Leda said...

Just "lucked" onto your site while looking for teddy bear patterns to knit for charity causes. Do you sell the pattern for that gorgeous teddy bear pictured?

He is gorgeous..he looks a bit like he is knitted in chenille ? Anyhow I have one similar from A Debbie Bliss book but he is way cuter.Talking of bits...at the age of three I opened a draw in Mum's workroom only to be met with a head ,an arm and two long ears ..it was the knitted bunny supposed to be a surprise for Easter..a regular horror movie .Hols

merete said...

Totally feel you on the post partum. Recently knit two bears out of scrap yarn and ripped up shirt stuffing named black bear and baby bear for a friend's son. Now I can't send them off and am considering making him another one (although I don't like my chances on not falling for that one)
