Mr. Bear

My middle monkey came home from school on Wednesday afternoon with a cute little stuffed bear. She said they were given the task of decorating the bear and bringing it back to school on Friday so they could be collected and distributed to children overseas who are/living with someone who is affected by HIV/AIDS. She was very excited. She talked a mile a minute about all the things she was going to craft for the bear that would make the little boy or girl who receives it smile. I of course offered to knit for the bear. So around 6pm last night I finally decided to take a look around online for a bear sweater pattern.

I totally fell in love with this pattern. See that smile on old Mr. Bear? He loves it too. Even better, my little monkey's eyes lit up when she saw Mr. Bear in his little sweater. We know now without a doubt it will put a smile on the little face that gets to call Mr. Bear his/her own.

Oh, there's a little hat pattern too that's so cute which I knit up as well. I didn't decide to do it until after midnight though and was too tired to get up this morning to take a picture. Cute, cute, cute. I might have to go out and buy a little bear just to have an excuse to knit some more of these.
