crochet for bears blog tour

A quick aside first: have you noticed I’ve made a favicon for PlanetJune? It was a challenge coming up with something recognisable at such a small size, so I just made a little bear in my site colours:

I think it’s cute! I hope it’ll help people to spot PlanetJune in the vast sea of websites out there. That’s one more task I can cross off my to-do list 🙂

The real point of this post is to let you know about the blog tour for Amy O’Neill Houck’s new book, Crochet for Bears to Wear. The tour starts today at Craftzine, where you can download a free pattern from the book!

Amy has a list of all the daily stops on her blog tour. There are some fantastic crochet bloggers represented here, so visit all the stops and, as an added bonus, you might find some new blogs to follow!

My stop is next Monday, when I’ll be reviewing the book and testing one of the patterns. As you can see from the photos below, my Fuzzy Bear loves accessories, so I’ll be crocheting him his own custom-sized piece of clothing…

I’ll also have a copy of Crochet for Bears to Wear to give away to one of my lovely readers, so don’t forget to check back here on Monday for a chance to win! 🙂

    I use MS IE and it works fine here!

    Now having said that guess it’s time to move on to a lower resolution so I could possible make out those little icons! LOL

  2. I really need to crochet one of your bears. For me, not Baby Man. 🙂

    I’m looking forward to your review on Monday.

    Your bears are so cute! I still haven’t found the yarn I want, although I have the pattern. Oh well, there’s a time for everything.

    Oh, I forgot to ask when can I get the favicon for PlanetJune for my browser? It would make it so much easier to find you 🙂

      The favicon should show up automatically in your browser without you having to do anything… My Twitter friends report it works with IE, Firefox, Chrome and Opera. The only one that I know it doesn’t always work with is the MSN browser. If it’s not working for you, which browser do you use?

    I look forward to seeing what you crochet for your fuzzy bear. I am planning on crocheting him soon.
