OH DEAR - I just read back a few pages (these CALs go fast) and what a great showing of finished projects. I see another scarf, an adorable snowman, flakes, garland... SO nice :)

How long would you guys make a garland?

 

I made the garland last year with #10 thread and a 1.9 mm hook. 32 flakes made it 60 inches long. When I took it off the tree yesterday, I decided it needed to be about twice as long next year to go around the tree instead of back and forth across the front.

I saw a candy garland that I wanted to take and modify (I didn't like the overall outcome of the pattern I saw). Not sure I have the patience for a snowflake garland to be long enough to wrap around the entire tree ... I'd be bald before the garland wrapped around the tree once LOL

I finished the "Happy Hooker" One skein scarf -the picture is a little dark- it is a pretty deep green- This will be going to my DD. I had to fold the scarf to tke the picture as this one comes out pretty long

 

I want to make a hat and fingerless mitts to match- still plenty of the yarn left!

So pretty. Can't wait to see the matching hat & mitts.

i just wanted to share my finished project

can't wait for next month:yay

Oh he's to cute.

Okay.............. I'm done............ :yay

I still have plenty of month left to make something else for this song too. :hook

 

lalalalalaa.....When it snows, ain't it thrilling,

Though your nose gets a chilling

We'll frolic and play, the Eskimo way,

Walking in a winter wonderland......lalalalalalaaaa

I was thinking of making mine 60 flakes which would be about 90". Here's the tree I'm thinking of using it on. It's a hibiscus plant in my dining room.

Thanks so much everyone for the compliments!

I had a lot of fun making my scarf!

I’m looking at using the rest of this month to put together a couple of afghans. They are going to made up of 12 / 12” squares. J

I made a snowflake garland out of sportweight yarn and my goal was to use up the skein. It ended up being 9 feet long, which sounds like a lot but really isn't.

Shelley - I like how you decorate your tree. The garland will look nice and I'd just drape it around the tree now and then until it is the right length.

 

Stacy - I LOVE that hat! It looks great and I love the colours you chose.

 

I am working away on my scarf tonight and I've got about 60 rows to go. :( Please cheer me on. I'm starting to lose interest :blush. I just have to keep thinking about how I will have a gift done 11 months early :clap I might even wrap it when it's done :heehee

Thanks, everyone! I like it a lot, too, but it is too big for my head. :( Maybe I will keep it to use as a gift, also.

Oh, I will Stacy. I'm thinking if I wrap and tag everything as I complete it it will be that much easier next Christmas. I even bought some wrapping paper on clearance this week. :D

Stacy- I love your hat. Sorry it is too big! That happens when I make hats sometimes too- they end up too big. What adjustments would you make do you think to make it smaller? I have that issue of Crochet Today and really like that hat!
