worthwhile project

Just thought I would post this in case anyone was interested. I have been crocheting bears for a charity called the Mother Bear Project that basically sends these bears to 3rd world countries to children with HIV/AIDS. I have a lot of leftover yarn laying around that I use on this. This is nice when I don't have a project and just want to work on "something". Patterns are free and very easy. Crochet is all one stitch. Just passing it on in case anyone is interested.

RE: worthwhile project

I've been knitting bears for Mother Bear for some time.My picture is on their web site. It's on the page under photo gallery. There are children's pictures and a page for "knitters".I'm on the first row holding three bears.My dress is black.This has been such a rewarding project. I use left over sock yarn for the clothing.

RE: worthwhile project

Well for Heaven' sake, that is good to hear. I am going to look at the photo gallery and check it out. You must be one of the super knitters! I have 4 more ready to send and it takes me awhile to do them since I can only do it in the evenings. Since I cannot embroider, I don't do the eyes. I tried and just made a big mess but they were kind enough to tell me to just send the bears and they would take care of adding the eyes/nose/mouth. You are right, its a good feeling when I put one in the "done" pile. The pictures of these children with these bears just warm my heart.
