Regarding Austin’s accident (son of rabbitrescuer), linnypin thought of donating a bear pattern she designed to him. Now she wonders if enough people would knit that bear. It doesn’t take a lot of yarn and could be used to use up spare yarn.
FYI: after Austin first went into the hospital I called and asked about sending a blanket. I was told that items need to be easily cleaned and washed due to the fact that people with burns need a very clean envirement to prevent infection.
Just thought I would share so you could keep that in mind as you choose your yarn for the bear.
i’d definatly give it ago as long as it wasnt to hard. for some reason my knitting skills have gone down the toilet recently. simple i’m ok with though. if you can let me know asap what pattern is as i will be ordering yarn tomorrow (my lys does a monthy order, if i dont order tomorrow i have to wait a month). sorry i just saw this thred.
I wanted to help rabbit and her family, I had a spare knitted teddy bear design and wanted to donate this pattern for Austin. So please take a look on my website linnypindesigns.co.uk and hit austin the bear. Please let me know what you think.He can be knitted in any yarn you have going spare, but just use the correct needle size for the yarn you will be working with. If all goes well the patterns and instuctions will follow.Hope you like him lets see how many children will get a new Austin teddy bear.My size teddy bear only takes 100grms
Rabbit told me that patients are allowed to select a gift when they leave. Many of the children are considered out-patient. I know this to be true because one of my pastors had a baby last year who has been traveling to a Shriner’s across the state for various surgeries to correct some birth defects.
The bears that we make won’t necessarily have to be placed in a bag. They might wind up as those other gifts to patients.
I LOVE the bear! I don’t know how you’re going to provide the pattern. Will you be PM’ing it to interested people?
