GIVE-AWAY KNITTING

I had give-away knitting on the brain the other day when I saw an episode of Knitty Gritty on knitting for charity. They made a cute teddy bear to send to kids in Africa. I have so many apple-sized balls of yarn in this house that I thought this might be a good way to whittle some of that stash down. So I grabbed some yarn and went to work; 36 hours later, I've got a bear to send.

He's not perfect, but hopefully some child will like him. I plan to perfect the technique by making a few more. I'm digging in to the two big baskets of yarn from my living room (Girls, you know what I mean!)

If you're interested in doing this super easy project, the pattern can be found here. (Seriously, I started him yesterday afternoon.) And check out the official Mother Bear Project website, especially the photos of the kids receiving their bears. And then get knitting!

1 Is this something a beginner can do? I have a ton of extra yarn too if anyone who knows how to knit needs yarn. I wonder if you can crochet these bears? P.S. I'm STILL working on baby blankets! Just 3 more to go

2 If I were a kid, I'd love that little doll. Very sweet.
