I finished my knitted bear (made of scrap yarn using an antique pattern) for the Bay Window Bears project (now over with) on March 27th and shipped him off to the Bay Window proprieters, and they let me know it went off to Jamaica with the rest. The bears will go to an orphanage in Jamaica where the children have really got nothing — certainly no toys or possessions of their own. The Bay Window folks were able to take over 150 bears!
The bear looked like some kind of dead withered lizard when I finished it, but then I stuffed it!
Voila! A fully unwithered non-lizard :-)
