It’s here! It’s here! My pattern showed up in the mail, and I’m dropping all my Christmas knitting to start on my first bear!
For my $5 donation, I received a beautiful (and heartbreaking) pamphlet on the Mother Bear project (can a pamphlet be heartbreaking?), my very own copy of the knit-in-the-round pattern, and an adorable tag for me to sign and tie around my finished teddy’s wrist.
Upon examination, the pattern looks well-written and straightforward, and I’m raring to get started!
I dug through my stash, and found some nice heathered merino (leftover from designing my Human Beans) in lovely mahogany, evergreen and grassy green shades. It’s super soft, and pretty strong-perfect for a stuffed animal.
Have you gotten to start on your Mother Bears yet? Did you order your pattern? It’s not too late!
