Care Bear Stare

December 12, 2014

All parties have received their bears so I can share.


Two Good Luck bears and a Cheer Bear. 

Good Luck Bear was made using Red Heart Classics Spring Green. I used an I hook for this one. 

Cheer Bear was made with Vanna ‘ s Choice in Dusty Rose.  The body was crouched crocheted using a J hook and the white was done with an I hook. 

And because no Care Bear is complete without its heart. ..


It’s been awhile

So I have pictures for you!

First off, the baby blanket I made for my manager who delivered her son in May. ¬†Oops, I’m a little behind in posts ūüôā

IMG_1504 Stormy Entrelac 2¬†This one was made using the Entrelac technique and, if I remember right, a J hook. The yarn used was Caron Simply Soft (one of my favorites for baby blankets) in Soft Blue, Sage and Grey. ¬†I was very happy with how this turned out, considering I hadn’t actually tried this method before.


The second one is an item hot off the hook. ¬†I literally just finished and packed it up tonight. ¬†A friend commissioned this as a gift and I sent her to her local Joann’s and told her to pick out the yarns she wanted me to use and I would go pick it up at my local store. ¬†She also choose the pattern and the border, which is a braided crochet edging.

Ocean Mist 2 Ocean Mist 3 This one I used a size I hook and Caron Simply Soft in Passion, Pagoda and Oceania.

Oh Baby!

A team member and my team lead at work are both pregnant, both due soon; but this post today is about team member. ¬†This is her first baby and she is having a girl. ¬†But she was very specific about colors; no pink. ¬†Her favorite color is purple so she is going with purple as much as possible. ¬†And of course, being who I am, I made a baby blanket. ¬†I used SmoothFox’s¬†Heart of a Child pattern that I got to test years ago. ¬†The original plan was to do it in dark, light and a variegated yarn that contained a lot of purple. ¬†However the variegated didn’t work out so well and I ended up including pink and green. ¬†The yarn was all Caron Simply Soft, my favorite for baby blankets and I used an I hook.

Heart of a Child purples The final result.
