On my hook

In my World of Crochet.

A little catching up to do.

Now that my Swap Partner has recieved her last package from me I can post what I made her and I need to catch up on other things I’m making. The Christmas crunch overwhelmed me but I think I’m about caught up now. 🙂

This is a thread wreath I made from a pattern in the Crochet World magazine for I think it was Nov. I made the Poinsettas pink instead of red and ended up putting a light blue bow on it but forgot to get a picture of it with the bow before giving it to my MIL.

 I will need to find either a frame or a colored background for it since where it hangs in her room the wall is an off white and it is really hard to see against the wall.

 I got my shrug I made for myself out of that really soft wonderfull Bernat Bamboo yarn. I bought a skein everytime I got a 40% off coupon from JoAnn’s so it took me awhile to get it finished.

It is so soft and comfy! I wear it to sleep in. The only thing I would have changed was the size of the bottom of the sleeves is a little wide but it isn’t bothersome.

I made these face cloths and body scrubbies for my SILs for Christmas. They were a little tricky with the stitch changes at first but once I got them down it was a breeze. They also helped me use up alot of my thread I have since my order with Elmore Pisgah awhile back 🙂

The last christmas presents I got done are for my Mom

These are the things I made for my Swap Partner.

           A tote made with cotton, a pair of Ear pops (A form of ear muffs without the band over your head these just pop on your ear), and a comfort shawl made with some of the many chennile skeins I bought. It is such a rich plush look in person the picture doesn’t do it justice. 

I had also made a squid cat toy for her cat but forgot to take a photo of it and sent one of the doll backpacks to her 4 year old daughter.

Among the wonderfull things my partner sent me was a bunch of squares for me to use on my lapghans for the nursing home. I got them bordered with white and made a few more squares so thanks to her I have at least one lapghan to give to someone in the nursing home this month.

This month I have been very blessed to have been gifted some things from the Holiday elves on Crochetville.

I got some pretty 8 inch squares for my own friendship ghan and one elf sent me 4 skeins of varigated Red Heart yarn for use on my lapghans for the nursing home. I also recieved a beautifull pattern book called 50 Sensational crochet afghans and throws. BOY is this book full of wonderfull patterns. I plan to start one soon for my husbands God Mother. And last but not least my swap partner sent me the 200 Ripple Stitch patterns that I absoultely love and have already started a lapghan from one of the stitches in it.
