New Yarns, New Ideas

Today Claire and I visited a new yarn store, Green Planet Yarn, in Campbell. They feature yarns that are organic, plant-dyed, US grown, fair trade and recycled fibers. I ended up buying one skein of yarn to make a scarf that will teach me a new skill. While there, Claire modeled a baby hat that one employee was designing, and she looked very adorable. Once the hat is done maybe she’ll model it for a photo. She was a hit there and enjoyed every minute.

While there I also picked up a pamphlet describing the Mother Bear Project. The pattern can be purchased for $5, and it’s a great way to use up old scrap yarn. Check out the photo gallery. It’s inspiring!

    I’ve made a few of the Mother Bear bears. It’s a pretty easy pattern. There’s also an interesting variation to the construction of the bear written by Grad School Knitter.

    I’m looking forward to checking out your finished bears.

    Hey, thanks for the link, Megan! I hate seaming too. 🙂
