Christmas Skirt

I love making Christmas stuff, if you haven't noticed.  This is another pattern that I had found online.  The skirt was pretty simple, starting out with a circle and then going back and forth as if it was a regular afghan.  The Holly and and Berries takes a little more work.  Christmas was coming soon and I hadn't finished it so I figured that I would just stop and just leave it like it is.  Not bad for our 4'5" foot christmas tree.

Table and side table mats

I wanted to be creative with the yarn that I had at that time.  These were the two colors that I had in my trunk.  I thought that table mat and side table mats would be different.  I didn't know much patterns and I didn't even think about to check to see if any patterns that I was looking for the table and side tables but I just went on my own.  This is my own pattern with a simple double crochet across and skipping every other stitch across.  Two simple lines to know that doesn't take make thinking to this.

Bundle Of Joy

I found this pattern online and took interest in making it.  It is interested how it ended up turning out.  If I remember correctly, the writing square was assembled with the heart border.  I was surprised that this blanket was sold when I was at the Christmas fair when I was trying to sell my crocheting stuff.  I sold this at $100.00.

Baby Hat and Sweater

My sister was having a baby girl so I figured I would make this hat and sweater for her.  I actually liked how it came out.

Teddy Bunny

This has been an interesting project.  I got this pattern from online.  It was suppose to be a Christmas ornament, but with the yarn that I had it multiplied the size of the project.  I am guessing this project was suppose to be used through cotton thread.

This is the softest yarn that I had used.  It feels like suede and it was very good yarn to work with and I wish I could remember the yarn because I want to get some more.  The top end closes up as you pull on the strings.

Baby afghan

This was an interesting pattern.  I remember working on single crochet, half crochet, double crochet and the pattern repeats over again.  I forget where I got this pattern from, but I know I got it online somewhere.

Heart Panels

These were suppose to be a 6 heart panel but I made 5 panels because it would look more like a rectangle.  It was an easy quick afghan.  If I remember correctly this only took me two weeks to do.    This is all double crochet except for the border.  I think I did single crochet around the border.

Adult Zigzag Afghan

This was an easy zigzag afghan as each row was the same.  This afghan was specifically requested by someone who lived in North Carolina about 5 years ago.  I had gotten $150.00 for this work.  I actually like the colors on this blanket.

Noah's Ark

This is one of my favorite blankets that I had made.  Noah's Ark.  I had a special request from one of my old coworkers that she wanted the heart on the boat blue and not red because the baby that she was giving it to was a boy.
