OK, I changed my mind. I’m not up to making the amazing, complex patterns I posted about on Wednesday. I’m sorry, but… oof. It turns out that I’m not up to making a giant lace shawl right now. (And, when I went into my stash and looked around to see if I had anything appropriate for knitting up those patterns, and didn’t find anything.)
Instead of going to the yarn store and dropping a bunch of money on yarn I probably won’t use (as fun as that can be), I decided to try to use up more of my leftover worsted weight.
It’s time for more bears!
Remember the Mother Bear Project? I made a big box of bears for them last Christmas. They deliver hand-made teddy bears to children in developing nations whose lives have been affected by HIV/AIDS. You really couldn’t ask for a better cause to support. (Also the bears end up super cute.)
I worked on this red, lavender and blue guy at work, while the kids were at recess yesterday. (Recognize the lavender yarn?) I forgot how fast these little dudes knit up. I’m almost to the leg split, and I probably did about 2 hours of half-hearted knitting on this guy.
I’m happy to be back on the bear train! Have you made any bears for the Mother Bear Project? Or, have you done any other knitting for charity?
