Crocheted

Crocheted Gifts

I can’t believe it’s the middle of the week already! Weeks do that to me sometimes. I have been caught up in finishing a pattern. It’s been a while, so I procrastinated a bit with it and took a lot of time on it. I’m excited to hopefully start getting back into some sewing here. I haven’t done much lately and I really miss it. Until some sewing gets done, I do seem to get some crocheting done. It’s a bit easier for me to do with the little ones running around. These are a few things I made for Christmas gifts. The above is a wrap I made for my mother in law.

I used this pattern to make it. It was one of those car projects. I started it in August and would work on it while waiting to pick miss J up from school, when the girls fell asleep in the car and I just parked somewhere to enjoy the quiet, or when hubby was driving. I felt it was an easy pattern, even with the slit. I had never done something like that so I just had to use more brain power in making sure I did it right.

I also just had to make some infinity scarves. They are so in right now! I made the above with two skeins of chunky yarn.

And this one I made for my mom with some thinner yarn because I know she doesn’t like a lot of bulk around her neck. I sooooo need to make one for myself. I love them and yet do not have one yet! I’m keeping my eye open for a yarn sale somewhere…..Have you crocheted anything recently?

      Wowza! A purse?!?! Go you! I would be a little nervous too. Just remember if it looks a little funny to try blocking it. I have thought some of my projects were gonners until I did that :)

    My granny taught me how to crochet this fall and i made her a cowl for Christmas. It was supposed to be a simple pattern but i didn’t realize i twisted chain and made a mobius! It still came out cute and she loved it.

      That is so awesome that she taught you! My grandma did when I was little, but I forgot! So I had to reteach myself :) So glad you were able to make her something that she loved!

    I want to be on your Christmas list this year; you made a bunch of gorgeous presents for some very lucky people! I am just amazed at all you’ve been able to do with two little ones running around. Very impressive! I always enjoy your blog, and I’ve enjoyed getting these present ideas for next year so I can start early!
