Have Yourself a Crafty Little Christmas

As thrilled as I am to be a Nanowrimo WINNER, there is a downside to my decision to devote the lion’s share of my time to writing last month — I’m seriously behind on my Christmas gift crafting.

I’ve been working double time with my crochet hook since December 1st to try to make up for it, but I think I might be losing this race.  I’m hampered by two things:  1)  Several projects did not turn out (insert pouty face here…), and 2)  I have no idea what to give to several people.

But…I soldier onward.  Below are photos of a few projects I have completed.

This hat is for one special little girl I know —

(I used the directions found at Repeat Crafter Me for the owl hat, with some minor adjustments so I could use the yarn I already had in my stash.)

and this headband is for another one.
I added crocheted trim to a fleece blanket. I might add some motifs later, but I haven't decided yet.

I’ve finished three of these rag wreaths in various colors.
Hands warm, fingers free! Perfect for driving.

With the exception of the owl hat, the projects were made up as I went along (no pattern was used).  Of course, it is great when that works out, but sometimes it doesn’t…which might be why I’ve had to rip out a fair share of projects as well.  I’ve also made a couple of scarves, a few dish rags, and two tea towels — but I have no idea who is getting what yet!  I think it is time to sit myself down and make a list…check it twice…and get with the program already!

That’s all I have time for today — I have lists to make and miles of yarn to crochet!

Happy crafting everyone!
