Something made me want to buy a kit and join the Mother Bear Project. If you are not familiar, it is all about knitting and crocheting stuffed bears. They are given to create comfort and hope for children in “emerging nations.”
Want to know more? motherbearproject.org. They have a Ravelry Group and a Facebook Page too.
It is very fun. So far the pattern, (there are 4 sets of instructions, so you can choose the instructions that you want to follow. knitted flat or knitted in the round. Or crocheted! ) is quite easy to follow.
To make it even More Fun, My pal Karen wanted to make some bears,too. We moved so I don’t see Karen often, but we text during SURVIVOR each week and more. She patiently waited until my kit arrived, and we are both knitting bears.
It is not a contest at all to see who finishes first. It is simply something we can do together to make the World a bit better. We decided we are both making girl bears.
So many of my bloggy pals are charitable in their knitting, sewing, crocheting, etc. I wanted to up my charity.
And since we are on the verge of a snow/slush/rain/wind event for the next 48 hours, I guess I’ll have to sit and knit. Lucky me!!
