Comfort/teddy dolls donation
A mixed box of 50 teddies and comfort dolls going to a radio friend in USA to donate to law enforcement to give to children that they encounter in their daily work.
Best machine for blankets
I would like to buy a machine, mainly for blankets, as I want to make for charity and selling and it takes too long to knit or crochet by hand. I have never used a machine before. What would be the best? I also can't afford a lot of money. Thanks

Size 50 needles
Hello friends! My wife bought me size 50 needles and I was wondering could I do a size 35 yarn?

But I lost it and don’t know what it is called. You start off by casting on 2 st. Than put them back on the left. Needle you knit the first st through the back of st. Than knit the next 2 together throu the back of st.does any one know this cast off it makes a lovely edge that nearly looks like a Icord
Little Piggy slipper/socks
These were fun to do! Just a basic sock pattern. I had a book on animal socks but I swear it was the worst to follow, went to someone that likes to decipher things! So, I took and revamped ears from my puppet sock book, made a nose from crochet, added a couple French knots for eyes, a curly-q for the tail and voila! They will be sprayed for non- skid. I am thinking about making some frogs next.
Tucker the teddy bear and his horse Trotter
Tucker and Trotter are my latest creations to be donated to the local animal shelter. There was a fundraiser this last Friday in which they went on a silent auction to raise money for the horses in the shelter's care. They both were nervous about leaving their birthplace but were feeling more and more excited as we got closer to the shelter to learn where their furever home was going to be. They just hoped they could raise some money for their fellow animal friends.
Tucker is made from the Gypsycream Big Bear pattern out of Cloud 9 from Hobby Lobby. His sweater and trousers were made out of Lion Brand Jeans yarn.
Trotter is made from the Sharon Birss My Horsie and Friends pattern. I used Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn! for his hooves and body and an Ice long eyelash yarn for his name and tail.
They both were a lot of fun to knit and watch grow up.
Thank you for taking the time to view my latest ARL donations!
