Bloring Blog

Hi faithful fans, if any of you are out there. Hello, hello, is this thing on?? Anyways, so sorry I haven't posted anything new and fabulous, but Iron Martin & Katiebeans are busy moving into their new apartment! Once things get settled, you can count on some classy and/or sassy new crocheted duds. Perhaps a crocheted bathing suit for the summer?! Anything can happen at TeaBeans...

Beanies for Your Boy's Bean

Just more of TeaBeans-brand wares crossing state lines. Here we have the infamous Brucifer modelling an older beanie with his very own Lady Kate:

Awww, almost as cute as Katiebeans and Iron Martin.


I can do a way better beanie than that one now for Brucifer, and I will. It's just goin cost me two beanies to Iron Martin. I hope he likes electric pink! Hehe, just kidding, hottie. I know you like lavender.

Amazing Cable Hat

Good evening, everybody! I had a special request for a hat recently. My friend Sheetal had trouble with her hats because she needed them to cover her ears, but then the hat was always covering her eyes. She also requested a smaller flower for the side. I came across this amazing hat pattern online, and I emailed it to myself with the subject: amazing cable hat. I did not think it was possible to do this pattern with crochet! I love braided cable, but I was convinced it was a knit-only.
I finished with hdc in blo. In order to keep the hat covering the ears but not the eyes (without making ear-flaps), I split the end of the hat and sewed the flaps up. To be honest, I am not really sure how I handled the split. Maybe I added stitches? All I know is that this awesome hat covers the ears but not the eyes! Mission accomplished. I decided not to add the flower because I thought the hat had a lot of detail. I am still waiting to hear back from my friend, but believe this: you will hear about it if I do.
