Another knitted bear
Normally at this time of year I am busy collecting things to go into a shoebox to be sent to a child somewhere who won't receive anything this Christmas. But due to another project we're working on I've not had as much time or money as normal.
However, I have just started a new job, much closer to home, which has cut my commute by half and means I have more time in the evenings for things like knitting. So rather than put together a shoebox, I have knitted another little bear.
He will be sent out to Knit For Peace who will be able to pass him on to someone who needs a hug this Christmas. They are an amazing organisation, who will take any knitting and pass it on to those who needed it, be it in the UK or abroad.
I would have made him a jumper too, but as always there is never enough hours in the day even when you get 2 of them back! So instead I crocheted him a scarf (using leftover wool from my cardy). I'm sure that will help to keep him warm, wherever he might end up. I send him with love and hope he gives someone comfort when needed.
