Crocheted Baby Football Cocoon

Football Cocoon 2Hi Crafters!

Well I am done with my latest project! I was done a few days ago BUT needed to take pictures!  I have been wanting to make one of these Baby Cocoons for some time now. I am very pleased with the way it’s turned out!

The materials used for this project are Red Heart Super Saver in White & Coffee and the hook I used for this project is Clover Brand Amour Crochet Hook 1049/J.  I normally use Boye hooks but lately I’ve been wanting to try out different types and styles.  You can see the image and link below.  I have to say it took me a little bit to adjust to it but once I got comfortable with it I loved how smooth it was. The handle has an easy grip too! I was able to crochet a lot longer which is always a PLUS!

Well now what will be on my HOOK next???? You’ll have to wait and see – it’s been something I’ve been wanting to make for some time now but just had to finish the “WIP’s” I already had laying around!  Ok, I have one more BUT it’s a knitting project! Does that count??  Oh well – thanks for stopping & as always…..

Happy Craftin’,

Hookin’ for a Cause

Knitting Rays of Hope DonationHi Crafters!  Just wanted to post real quick about a website I came upon last year when I started Looming.  It’s called Knitting Rays of Hope.  They make hats for Cancer Warriors, Babies in the NICU and a few other causes.  I believe they just started in 2012 so this site is farely new.

I just sent this package last week filled with hats mostly for boys but my daughter and I also made some for the girls.  We plan on making more to send hopefully in a few month!

If you have been wanting to make and donate hats you’ve got to check them out! I know there are LOTS of places but just had to share this one too!  PLUS they have some great hats for the Loom too which you can find HERE!
I know they have a Minion one that I am for sure going to try.  If you have thought about Looming they’ve got some GREAT tips and how to’s on the site also! As I mentioned that’s how I found them!  So CLICK HERE to check them out!  As always thanks for stopping by &

My “WIP” is done….

Batman

Well Happy “Hump” Day all!  It is safe to say that I am for sure “Hookin” on Hump-Day!
But just had to take a quick break to share the finished product!  Isn’t he just the cutest???  I LOVE making Lovey’s or Security Blankets and I am super happy with how this one turned out!  On the Original pattern it called for “Safety Eyes” which I didn’t have so I ended up crocheting them. But I really like how it came out!  You can find the FREE Pattern HERE! Plus there is a new one I’m going to tackle “Captain America” but first to finish my last “WIP”. I had promised myself I would start anything new until they were done.  It’s so HARD!!

Football Cocoon Anyway, thanks for stopping by and here’s a peek at what’s almost done!  Not sure if it’s obvious what it’s going to be. Any guesses??

Well need to eat and get back to Hookin’, thanks for stopping by and as always….
