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. ..

Wow it’s almost been a year! These past few months have absolutely flown by and I’ve regained my crocheting desire. So here a couple recent projects that I can share. There are some others, but they are on their way to the lucky recipients so until then, you’ll just have to wait.
First is this little guy. This is a Baby Cthulhu, which is some mythic sea God/creature/thing. The pattern is a free one from here and I used Caron Pounds, both shades of green I already had on hand. In an attempt to make it a little bit bigger, I also used a J hook. This little guy went to one of my invisible friends (a friend on Facebook who I haven’t yet had the pleasure of meeting in person) for her little one who is due any minute now. Another invisible friend loved it so much that I am currently in the process of making a second one; the only change I’m making to the second one is using a K hook.
Another invisible friend is getting these, both are patterns from Snowcatcher who not only designs gorgeous snowflake patterns, but also quilts and takes amazing pictures. Her blog is worth following just to see all the pretty things she does. I’m in a group on FB and we do a gift exchange each year. These are part of the package sent to my invisible friend and sadly the pictures did not turn out that great.

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 🙂
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.
This one I used a size I hook and Caron Simply Soft in Passion, Pagoda and Oceania.
