Annie's Bear

I finished another bear using the pattern i got from The Mother Bear Knitting Project.

Except this time, i adapted the pattern a bit, and am giving her as a gift to my sister in law Annie... Annie is my age, but has Alzheimer's Disease. She is non verbal and is pretty much getting around in a wheelchair now. I am sure this little bear will get plenty of hugs and love from her new owner...

My brother Bob requested a hat and scarf for her to keep her warm, and we chose bright colors and used interesting soft yarn, with lots of textures for her to explore...

I want to wish all of my blog friends a Very Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa...Whatever your celebrations may be, i hope you are at Peace, and surrounded by your Loved Ones during the Holiday Season....

Annie's bear is absolutely wonderful. What a sweet face he has! Your post brought tears to my eyes and reminded me once again of the power of handmade.

To create something with so much love...what a treasure.

I know your sister in law will just adore her new friend.

Happy holidays, Mare!
