So, I’m not doing a great job with my New Year’s Resolution to complete one mother bear every month this year. So far my MO has been to do nothing with my bears for a good three or four months, then panic and knit up a bunch of bears in a weekend.
And this month has been no different.
I spent last weekend sewing up the half-dozen bears I had knit and stuffed back in June, and the first half of this week has been focused on knitting up three more bear bodies (I still owe an arm and a half to finish my September bear).
None of my bears have faces yet, but that’s OK. I’m currently planning on doing all the faces in one fell swoop over the holidays. That seems like a nice Chrismassy activity- sewing faces onto charity teddy bears while listening to Christmas carols and munching on gingerbread. It feels very much like something out of a book from the 1940s.
Have you been making any Mother Bears? Or are you busy doing other charity knitting?
They are adorable! I almost like them without faces-kind of Amish that way. Love them.
