Or at least a Teddy Bear Coffee Date.
One of my good friends, Kate, has started knitting a bear, too! (Hi Kate!) And so has my mom- it’s super cute! (Hi Mom!)
Mom lives in the Great White Tundra that is the Midwest, so I can’t meet up with her, but Kate lives just a couple miles down from my place. That means we can meet up, visit different coffee shops in the area every week or so and get our knit on!
Kate’s a new mom, so I’m pretty sure she’s excited to get out of the house and dust off her needles, and I’m loving having a knitting buddy! There’s something lovely about having someone to chat with while your needles click away. (And, if you’re awkward like me, it’s nice having a friend with you so you’re not that weirdo knitting alone in public. Double win!)
So, grab your friends! See if they want to pull their needles out of storage, or lend them a set of your own and get knitting! It’s possibly the best way to spend an afternoon!
What’s that?! You still haven’t picked up your Mother Bear pattern? What are you doing! Get it here!
How are you doing on your bears? I’ve just started knitting Bear number 7!
(Hi Allison!) It’s been so fun relearning to knit with the Mother Bear pattern. Thank you for the encouragement (and lessons so I can actually make the thing). Now I just need to finish it!
