Yesterday, "Kaystar", my roomie from college, sent me this email and said I could share. "Stashio" is apparently the name that stuck to the bear because I made sure Kaystar knew I knit him up with Manos del Uruguay cotton colored: "pistachio". You see she had (and apparently still has) a BIG thing for pistachio ice cream. So way back in 2005 I worked up this little pistachio bear for her new, sweet, baby boy and sent it away.

So Sarah,
I am not sure if I have told you how much Anson LOVES his "Stashio" you made him, he sleeps with it, he takes it to church, it is his best friend... Well a few months ago.... Anson LOST his Stashio. It was horrible! We looked all over for it! I tore the house APART!! I even got online to try and find somewhere to buy them, or where I could learn how to make them my self!! It was stressful! Soon we found him a little dog, and it seemed to do the trick... YEA.... but last weekend Drew took Anson camping and in his camping back pack, there was STASHIO!!!! Anson was so happy, he would not let it go! He even did a happy dance! So I thought I would share that with you, and let you know that you gave my little boy a HUGE piece of joy! Thanks Sarah! I love you! I hope all is well, I love looking at your blog and seeing you cute family! Love you so much.

The boy is big now and doing a little happy dance. I would love to see that. To bad we live so far away. Anyway, thanks for the update on "Stashio" Kaystar, it made me smile.

If you're wondering, the bear pattern is from Knitting for Baby by Melanie Falick and Kristen Nicholas. It knits up pretty quick. Now that I've de-stashed I might make some more bear friends.

I bet you want to touch. This yarn is soooo soft.
