Knook mitts for spring

Our new chicks arrive in three weeks so spring should not be much later… I anticipate spring coats will make an appearance sooner than they should so I worked up a pair of fingerless mitts on the knook. Used “Deborah norville everyday worsted” in “spring” and a size “g” knook.

Funshine Bear

WP_20150111_08_09_36_Pro_edited InstagramCapture_c2604e2a-ad37-43c2-a116-b7caabef8ae7_editedIt was a late night but I finished Funshine Care bear in time for my son’s birthday. I used the same Leisure Ants pattern that I used ten Years ago when I made “good Luck Bear” for my daughter. Also pictured is my own handmade care bear its about 35 years old and I believe a friend of my parents made it.

6th birthday gift

I have eight days…


Are you wondering where I got these awesome stitch markers? They were in a prize from the Crochet Nirvana blog! Also I got a book, Christmas Crochet for hearth and home, a hook, yarn and lots of other goodies. It happened to arrive on my birthday last month too! http://crochetnirvana.weebly.com/blog/christmas-crochet-by-edie-eckman-blog-tour-book-review-a-giveaway

Plate canvas kissers

Did anyone else make these with Your Grandma when you were a kid? I had a good time making these with my daughter this Weekend. We gave then to the Church ladies after the Christmas pageant. they ave 10×10 squares sewn together ontwo adjacent sides. Does that make sense? Well they are a fun Trick.

amigurumi nativity in Crochet.

I had a  good time stitching up these dolls for my cousin. They were easy and cute but they have a ton of parts so it took quite a bit of time. Still I Love them. Great Stashbuster.

The pattern is available here : http://www.craftsy.com/pattern/crocheting/toy/amigurumi-nativity/34910WP_20141201_11_16_33_Pro 1_editedWP_20141130_13_17_38_Pro_edited
