Mother Bear Project

With school keeping me busy, I haven't been knitting as much as I'd like, though I have been plugging away on a pair of simple toe-up socks, in KnitPicks Felici Sport, for my sister, that I'm hoping to finish before her birthday. Already well up the leg, they're close to finished.

Inspired by the CogKNITive podcast, I finished my first Mother Bear Project in ONE day. (Ok, it was like 6 hours or so, but still....) Knitting for charity takes away the guilt of knitting when there are probably other things I could be doing (like studying or laundry). The pattern is a little fiddly, with the body parts, yarn switching, and embroidered facial details, but it's such a small cute thing, that it knits fairly quickly.


  1. Just looking up Mother Bear Project for inspiration. This is an amazing first bear. I may be copying your faces now !


I'd love to hear from you, however, I moderate weekly, so your comment may not appear for several days. If you have a question, please remember to post your contact info. Thanks!
