Ethan




Another new bearkidz baby is born! Ethan is smaller than the bears I recently made. he is only 5.5 inches tall, crocheted from a short eyelash yarn and 5-way jointed. I am not a big knitter, although I enjoy knitting for my bears. At the moment I love making and dressing them in little hooded jackets. The next winter is just around the corner! Ethan is listed for adoption on Bear Pile: http://www.bearpile.com/item/47961

Milton




I would like to introduce my new bear Milton. He is entirely crocheted, one-of-a-kind and stands 8 inches tall. Milton is 5-way jointed and filled with sheep wool and safely encased steel shot to give him a nice weight. To keep him warm I have knitted a hooded jacket from premium angora yarn.

It is extremely warm and I am so much looking forward to my favorite season of the year: Fall! After the earthquake we had a couple of days ago, we are now waiting for Hurricane Irene to pass by. I completely missed the earthquake, in my house I felt nothing. Some streets over the houses were shaking. Hopefully Irene will miss us completely and I hope she will also not do serious damage to the east coast! Let's cross fingers!

I wish everybody a nice weekend!

Christmas in Summer




These 2 pictures were taken in 2 different stores yesterday!

We still have around 90 degrees and sunshine. It is hot and humid! For me to see Christmas decorations is a little too early! We haven't even had Halloween yet!

Another bearkidz bear is "born": Rascal. I have chosen this name although I already made a Rascal several years ago. The "old" Rascal has never been offered for sale and is part of my personal collection. Therefore I felt comfortable to name this little one Rascal as well. This was the name that came to my mind the moment I saw the spiky fur developing when I crocheted him. I also knitted his hoodie and crocheted the blanket he sits on.
