~ A baby cocoon ~

Finished up this baby cocoon last night.  It's crocheted with Bernat Baby Blanket yarn - which is a size 6 bulky and 100% polyester.  This is a chenille type yarn and it's very soft and squishy.   The hook recommendation for this yarn is a 'K', but I used an 'L'.

  2. I can see that you are really enjoying making these videos. It comes natural to you. I wouldn't know what to say or how to act. Ha! Some little one will be safe and sound in that lovely cocoon. Perhaps cocoons for the pups so they can't go wandering off. :) Have a wonderful day. Tammy

  3. Hello Debi,

    How nice you make videos. The subtitles (I need them) are somewhat surrealistic but I think I got what you are telling:)
    Happy weekend!

  5. Nothing like getting a jump start first thing in the morning with the family pets on the run yapping about their "prison break", all the while they are sniffing out the neighborhood, lol. I am so glad you got them back unharmed. They know who controls the biscuit jar. When we took our one dog for obedience classes the instructor told about her trouble maker dog getting loose off the enclosed back porch. He was gone for almost an hour and she called for him 2 times, figured he would come back if he wanted and boy was she surprised when he returned. She said it was no time for scolding, she went to the fridge and gave him a couple of hot dogs. That was all it took to teach him to come when she called him the first time. Dogs are little stinkers at times, but we love them anyways. I know what you mean about working with heavy sized yarn and it hurting the wrist. When I crocheted my rag rugs for the kitchen I had to use this huge crochet hook and it was hard on the wrist. I made 3 rugs. The sad thing is I can't put them down in the kitchen, the dogs think they need to pee on them. They are folded up in the linen closet. I made them to match my curtains cause I couldn't find rugs I liked. Now it has been several years and my curtains will be wore out before I can use the rugs....blue gingham. I'll have to buy new curtains if I out live the dogs, lol. Love your videos. I found a cute pattern for a baby blanket. It will be the next project and coming your way in the next few weeks.
