I’m really excited to be working in my new office. I still know where everything is and the place is shaping up. How did I get so much stuff?!?!
What have ya’ll been working on lately? I have taken a break from the Madeline Rug to start some Christmas Crocheting. I want to finish a blanket for my wee one, as I have never made her one (I know!!).
So far I have been frustrated with it and frogged it several times. I had a vision of lovely panels of Tunisian stitches joined together to make a more knit like fabric and a squishy blanket… but, yeah… It is on time out for a few hours!
Also, I was thinking I would like to make either ornaments or snowflakes to give as gift toppers this year. I don’t usually give crochet items for Christmas. I never know if people actually like the stuff or they have it in a box all year and when I visit they take it out. I don’t want to be that family member, you know? So a gift topper it is.
Well I have some inspiration for you today. Just to get in the Christmas spirit, I recommend making and wearing this Silly Simple Elf Hat from Convivial Crafter.
Aren’t these stocking fabulous! I think I would add a little lace either around the top or and the bottom of the ribbing. Totally cute. I love the ribbed top and the shell texture! We can thank Crafts Unleashed for this free pattern!
Petals to Picots came out with a new square. She calls it the Caterpillar Square Crochet Pattern. I hope she makes a whole blanket. I would like to see that. Very clever.
Speaking of squares!! Nadia Fuad is wrapping up her 365 days of Granny Squares! If you can’t find a square there you like then… I don’t know, I guess start knitting. (yeah, I said it – j/k). But seriously, you should go check out her page.
I was inspired by these two scarves. Aren’t they so pretty. Both I could see in a basic crochet stitches. One has fringe and the other has nice color changes, and they are both very very nice. I have some yarn to make the blue one. pfft – who am I kidding, I have enough yarn to make both 🙂 But time is what I lack.
How about you? Do you get to make all the crochet projects you want? I wish!
Make it a beautiful day,
