Anchorage Pride Festival is one of my favorite events. You feel a lot of love being there. However, It has been canceled since last summer. To honor pride month, I started making rainbow hedgehogs four years ago. I thought it was just for the pride month, but the rainbow hedgehogs became so popular that I sell them year-round. At first, I had a couple of specific yarns for rainbows. However, it is hard to keep buying the same yarns because they get discontinued so often. So, I made them with whatever colorful yarn available at the time. It was hard to list on Etsy because all the rainbow hedgehogs have different colors. This year, I found the perfect yarn for rainbow hedgehogs. So, I have rainbow hedgehogs 2021 edition.

It’s been cold here in Anchorage. Now, we are waiting for snowfall. Since I cannot wait for snow, I made small numbers of snow cloud earrings with slightly pearly frosty beads. I crochet the clouds with soft merino wool yarn. They are soft and squishy. They will add a bit of fun for your winter outfit.

This year I added black bears to the gang! I don’t know why I didn’t last year. Anyway, I love big ears of black bears. They look cute and mischievious, aren’t they?
I crocheted the bear head with 100 % wool worsted yarn, like the other animal heads. And now, Alaskan animal head ornaments are brown bear, polar bear, black bear, and moose. I’m thinking of adding some more animals.

I designed these rainy cloud earrings last summer.
We had very dry hot summer without good amount of rain for a long time.
I made rainy clouds with gray yarn that I had in my stash. The skinny yarn came from my mother’s stash. She used to knit with knitting machine so she had a lot of remnants of fingering weight yarn from 1970s.
The first couple pairs I made with the vintage yarns sold out at a local market right away.
Now I make them with cashmere and merino wool blend yarn. It is not scratchy at all even it touches your face.
