A Bear Hug

A few years ago I learned about the Mother Bear Project from the hosts of a knitting podcast I listen to.  Every summer they host a Mother Bear KAL/CAL (Knit A Long/Crochet A Long) and every year I have smiled from a distance.  According to the Mother Bear Project website, they are a non-profit organization […]

Made with Special Sauce

See that pile?
