It's that time again! Who's excited to meet the next Cookie Pal? In case you missed the previous weeks, we've already met the bear, the puppy, and the cat. This week we'll be meeting an extra adorable friend: Maxwell the Monkey!
With a big move for our family looming ahead, I've been trying to be really good about not acquiring any new yarn. Instead, I've been working my way through my yarn stash. To put my partial skeins to good use, I decided to make some beanies to donate, but I had some very specific requirements in mind before I started. I wanted a pattern that was warm, easy, worked up quickly, looked good when made with leftover yarn, had minimal sewing, and was fairly one-size-fits-all. So instead of sifting through all the patterns out there, I created my own! I haven't designed many knitting patterns in my day, but my yarn-lovin' heart says that this one is definitely a winner.
Who's ready for another Cookie Pal? We've already met Beverly the Bear and Pedro the Puppy. This week's featured Cookie Pal is the one of the coolest cats around (literally): Christopher the Cat!
It's time to meet our second Cookie Pal! (If you have no idea what a Cookie Pal is, make sure to check out this post first.) Last week we met Beverly the Bear, who was actually the last Cookie Pal I made. Today we're going to meet the very first Cookie Pal I ever designed, way back when: Pedro the Puppy!
Today's the day! I am thrilled to finally be sharing the Cookie Pals with you all! If you have no idea what I'm talking about, you might want to start over here first. Don't worry, I'll wait for you while you catch up. *Twiddles thumbs.* Alright, we're all on the same page now? Perfect. Let's meet our very first Cookie Pal! Internet, meet Beverly the Bear.
I've been working on something extra fun behind the scenes lately and I am SO excited to finally share it with you all! For a while now, I've been wishing for one easy-to-use pattern that I could turn into all sorts of animals with some simple changes. And I think I cracked it! I've been making lots of different animals from my pattern, which my kids have been loving. But it's time for me to stop crocheting and share the pattern with you guys, so you can make some cute Cookie Pals of your own! And, to make things even better, Love Crafts has generously offered a giveaway for yarn that the winner can use to make these cuddly animals!
