Knit-Ted and Knot-Ted

Hope you enjoy the antics of my two latest Teds, Knit-Ted and Knot-ted who met today on Grandma's parlour table.

Knit-ted was waiting patiently in the warm sunshine for Grandma to return and sew up his foot but while he was sat there his new found friend Knot-ted, while trying to get to the jammy biscuit, became tangled in the trail of wool that was still joined to Knit-Ted's foot!  Try as this small furry Ted might to untangle himself each movement he made just made matters worse for his friend the knitted bear.

 I hope Grandma will return soon and rescue both Teds!

Thank you Christelle and Ruth for the teddy bears that inspired this painting.


  1. Thank you and a happy New year to you too :)

  2. simply wonderful. I can just feel the warmth of the sunshine. Poor Knit=ted. I hope Grandma does indeed come back soon


  3. I just want to give both teddies a hug! They are adorable. I love the detail in all your paintings, Ona. I wish I could watch you paint.

    Happy new year!

  4. Happy New Year to you too Christelle :)

  5. I am absolutely in awe of your whimsical idea and setup of this painting -- it is beautifully executed, like many of your other pieces, but it is the careful thought that you put into setting it up that puts a smile on my face when I see it! I couldn't help but wondering where on earth did you find the knitted Teddy Bear (and the knit cover for tea pot, for that matter)? Are you yourself a knitting guru beside a very accomplished painter?

  6. Hi Arena, I had the idea back in october and asked a friend to Knit the teddy bear for me. The 'Tea cozy' is actually a hat in real life. I sort of 'adapted it' for my painting so the only knitting i did was in the painting :)
