Lavender Bear

This teddy has been sitting, in parts, on my dresser for about 3 months now.  I’d been waiting for the hand painted craft eyes I ordered, and then, I’m not going to lie, I have just been too lazy.  The worst part about making a teddy is putting it all together.  I am really good at getting the face perfect, but I have a real hard time putting the head on and the thought of doing so makes me want to put down the bear… or not pick it up.

Finally the crochet bug bit me again and I decided I had to finish it.  I plan on sending her to my mother sometime soon.  I used Bernat chunky… actually the same ball that I used to make the FANtastically soft scarf… and my own pattern.  I am testing the pattern out right now and will post as soon as I am done.

Chocolate Old Fashioned Teddy Bear

I made this guy for Mike’s daughter 2 Christmas’ ago.  I used my own pattern, which I will post as soon as I re-write and test it out once.

Christmas projects

I made this scarf for my really good friend, Candice.  I used the Kite stitch scarf pattern by Caron, Bernat Chunky yarn and a 9mm crochet hook.

This pattern was a little mundane but it turned out really nice, and was very simple.  A great project for sitting in front of the T.V.  I definately plan on making more of these.

This scarf I made for my step mom.  I Used Bernat Harmony and I believe a 9mm hook.

I did simple hdc lengthwise until it was as long as I wanted it then continued until it was as wide as I wanted it.  I also did a spike stitch in the center so it wasn’t so plain.

I used the FANtastically Soft Scarf pattern for this scarf.  My step mothers partner recieved it, and loved it.. which I am glad because I wasn’t quite sure if she was into scarves.

I used the same Bernat chunky yarn and 9mm sized hook.  Easy pattern, and again this is a good one to make while you are watching a movie or t.v.. “auto-crochet mode” as I call it lol.  The finished scarf had a really nice texture to it and was also nice and warm.  I will definately be making this one again.

Hello… yet again..

Wow, it’s been a long time. Alot has happened, alot has changed….

I had my second surgery. It went fine, a little different than the first one, but still okay. Apparently in like 10% of people in my age group, the cataract begins to come back.. though not fully. They call it a haze. So I will need laser surgery. I go back to the opthomologist on Thursday and hopefully we can set up the surgery so I can get my life back fully.

Not long after my second surgery, I ended it with Mike. Though for the last year and a bit we have remained living with each other… Only because neither of us can afford to live alone at the moment. I finally found a place though that is cheap enough so I will be moving in June hopefully.. I can’t wait! Living with ones ex truly is a disaster!

I haven’t really done much crocheting, just a bit at Christmas time, but suddenly the crochet-bug has bitten me again and I can’t seem to put my hook down. I’ve even been thinking about making myself a sweater.. a KNIT sweater. I know, I am ambitious. We will just have to wait and see if the sweater happens, but the teddy bears I plan on making definately will. I also plan on rewriting all my patterns, testing and posting them.. Which is why I have re-kindled my blog. Speaking of testing my pattern, I need to get back to it.. I only have until Tuesday. TTFN 🙂
