Last Minute Gift

I made several of these...I think they are very clever....

Christmas Penny Wreath

Check out the simple pattern HERE. I used ribbon instead of yarn for the bow but either certainly works. I also glued a pin on the back for wearing. I gave several to neighbors as a little gift. Its a very quick crochet....check it out.

Finally Finished!

I started this blanket over a year and a half ago. I put it on hold because my DD moved to New Orleans and really had NO need of a blanket. But when she moved back to Boston, I pulled it out of my WIP pile and resumed working on it. I had entered it in the Ravelympics, but ran out of yarn. When I got more, I decided to get it done to give for Christmas. I got it done today....

Wool Eater Blanket

I used Vanna's Choice and a "G" hook. Its a very heavy, warm blanket and BIG. That's why it took me so long AND used up so much yarn.Even buying the yarn on sale at 2/$5 it cost a lot. Never did a project live up to it's name as this one did...ha,ha! You can find the basic pattern HERE.

Still have another kitty bed to make and a pair of fingerless mitts. Hope to get it all done in time. My DD will be home on Sunday for the holidays.

For all of you who celebrate the holiday, may you get all your gifts finished.....and have a VERY Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. See you soon!
