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. http://gradschoolknitter.blogspot.com/2008/03/double-knit-mother-bear.html

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