It’s About the Lamb

I found the sweetest little Lamb pattern that seemed to fit perfectly with my goal of recognizing the Savior’s gift to us on Easter. I wanted to make them for my kids but I just couldn’t get five of them finished in time.

So instead, I ran them around to my neighbors with a sweet little booklet called “It’s Not About the Bunny, It’s About the Lamb.”

I think I’ll be making a few more of these.

At least 5 anyway.

Happy Easter!

Bitsy Boots

In case you–like me–don’t get out much or wander around in the kiddie show section of your tv…let me introduce you to Miss Bitsy Boots of the Super Kitties fame.

Well, my sweet granddaughter “Miss C” asked me to make her a Bitsy Boots of her own. You know what I say…”ANYthing for you, my dah-ling!”

The pattern called for the fluffy chenille yarn and a big hook. The funny thing was that when I started crocheting–this thing quickly became ENORMOUS!!

I mean, look at those feet! They’re as big as my hands for Pete’s sake.

Each ear was bigger than my palm. It was seriously starting to scare me.

Then came the head. I think it’s adorable, but I happen to know that is bigger than Miss C’s head. I’m creating a monster!

A cute monster–but a monster none the less.

Luckily, Miss C didn’t seem to mind one bit.

Bitsy Boots, meet ahhhhh…meet…ahhhh…

Bitsy Boots two. Heh, heh.

Happy Birthday honey. Grammy loves you!

If you’ve been around here for a little while, you probably already know that we love, love, LOVE the series Avatar–The Last Airbender. Heck, my boy–back when he was known as “The Bald Kid” even dressed up like the main character, Aang, for Halloween!

I’ve also crocheted another character–Sokka,  from the show for Chompy a few years ago. Our history with this stuff goes waaaay back. So, when Lyndi asked for a crocheted Aang for her birthday—that was an EASY yes from me.

I mean…..those EARS!! Aren’t they just adorable?!!

And his sweet little arrows…well, he just stole my heart.

It’s quite likely I’ll have to find a reason to make the whole set. Can’t be helped.

Sooooo, what do people who don’t crochet, do all day?

I can’t even imagine.

Happy Birthday Lyndi!!

Micro Mega Man

We have quite a few Mega Man fans among the male population of my family.

They all played the video game in it’s many forms and sealed his awesomeness in a permanent place in their little boy brains.

Therefore, it was only right that the sweet little character be forever enshrined…

in crochet.

Because we all know that everything is more fun that way.
