Quick knit for a sick girl

My boss' daughter was taken to Children's Hospital on Monday for emergency surgery. She is 5. I decided to knit up something special in hopes of cheering her up and luckily I had a pattern for a stuffed bear and enough yarn to make it in my stash.

The pattern is from Last-Minute Knitted Gifts and there are instructions for making a rabbit and an elephant. I think one could easily make a cat or dog too. I think there is enough of this brown yarn for another stuffed toy, which I could use for a present for an expectant mom.

I sat and knit while G2 sewed her pavilion. It was a good productive night AND I received confirmation that P and I got feast tickets for Boar's Head.
