Teddy Bear for Refuge
I have finished my teddy bear which has been knitted for Refuge.
This pattern for a basic bear and clothes comes from a newly published book, but has also been distributed online by Simply Knitting and The Knitter in return for a donation to the Knit for Refuge Campaign.
Refuge is a charity which helps women and children subjected to domestic violence to rebuild their lives. The campaign has asked for blankets and teddies to pass on to families who arrive at the refuge with no possessions of their own. The campaign is due to run until December 2012.
My teddy will be delivered to The Knitting and Stitching Show in London in October.
