A little bear for my grandniece, who will be born in March

I just finished making this little bear with handspun yarns. It's for my little grandniece who will be born in March.

Let's just say that I'm a better spinner than I am a knitter. At least she and her mother will be able to tell that it was handmade, and with love in every stitch, if not a terrible amount of skill ;-)

The bear's body and sweater are made with alpaca yarn, the scarf is Bluefaced Leicester wool, and the face was stitched with yak yarn.
