Mother Bear for March

Mother Bear for March

I just finished crocheting my first Mother Bear for the year. I haven’t had too much time lately to work on bears for the Mother Bear Project but did want to crochet one more bear to ship off to the organization.

Here is Mr. Bare Bear who was crocheted using a partial skein of Yarn Bee Fair Isle yarn in purple teal multi colorway. I tried to match a few areas as I crocheted the parts of the bear so there was some matching of colors. I added a simple scarf using the same skein of yarn.

This bear uses the crochet pattern from the Mother Bear Project but it has been adapted to be seamless and without joining. You can read more on my mods of the original crochet pattern here if you’d like more info.

Mini Christmas Stockings for the Troops

Mini Christmas Stockings for the Troops

The Warmth for Warriors organization is once again requesting homemade mini Christmas stockings for the troops. For the last several years, I have been heading up the yearly drive for the group on Ravelry and promoting the stocking drive on other sites.
Each year we ask for handmade crocheted, knitted, sewn, or woven mini Christmas stockings be crafted to about 6 inches long. They are then filled with little goodies at the Warmth for Warriors headquarters before being sent off in early November to soldiers overseas.

In 2017, over 2800 stockings were stuffed with soaps, shampoo, candies and other little treats as a small gift for our troops for Christmas. The filled socks are just a little gift to brighten spirits for our troops during the holidays.

I have several different free crochet patterns available on my site to inspire people to make stockings for the Warmth for Warriors. I hope that others will be inspired and help us in this year’s campaign. Here is the top-down mini Christmas stocking pattern featured in the above photos. […]

Round Granny Blanket

I have wanted to try out a round granny blanket pattern for a while now. I used this round granny mandala pattern from Crochet from Raymond. It is an outstanding pattern with lots of pictures to help show how to create a beautiful round granny mandala blanket.

This pattern can be used to blend different colors and assembling color fades creates so stunning granny mandala. One only needs to check out the over 600+ different completed blankets on Ravelry to be inspired to grab some yarn and start your own beautiful round granny mandala.

Here is one more round granny blanket that I just finished today. […]
