My Newest Crochet & Knit Creations

Happy Monday!

I am so excited! I finished the sweater I have been working on. Now Melanie and I each have two in our closets.

I thought I would make a bright one for myself to compliment the mustard/light yellow one I made last month. :)

I was inspired by the baby blankets I made in July for KAS for this color combination of red and aqua.








I have also been knitting tiny teddy bears ever since my attempt to make a wristlet that evolved into a teddy bear! :)
I have 5 of these little guys ready for a holiday care package for the KAS Charity in South Africa. I am working on a few more bobble squares to add to the box so I will have more pictures for you this week!
The "Tube Teddies" are so easy and fun to knit that I am busy writing a tutorial to show you how to make your very own. :)
Have a super day everyone!

Hi Melissa & Emmitt! I love the new sweaters. Soon you will have a one for each day of the week.

Maybe Mom will be inspired to make me a little bear after she reads the tutorial.
