Some more F.O.'s

Hi everyone,
Since my knitted baby toque took me forever, I decided for the next baby gift, I should crochet something instead. So here it is: Cute little toque and booties, which went so darned quickly, I couldn't believe it.
Also finished this week: my Christmas lap quilt, which I have been working on since last November, and finally got back to.

Baby Scarf & Toque

Here's the baby gift . . . finished! The toque pattern is from a Debbie Bliss book. I don't think I'll ever make a baby toque again, because it took me FOREVER!!!! At least for adult toques, you can wear them for more than one year.

Care Bear Countdown . . .

Okay, so I think that this Tenderheart bear is the cutest thing I have ever made. Too bad I had to give him away . . . I was really impressed with how well he turned out. The pattern for this was really easy to follow, so if anyone wants to make a Care-Bear, I have a book with all of them in it which I will be happy to share!
