welcome to all the newbies to this CAL!

MooMoo, love all you've done already - very smart and cute gifts!!!

 

I didn't hook at all today - my hands and wrists hurt really bad. All I can think of is the super cold weather and the long walk I took with one of our dogs....never had it this bad before....so I'll be back here tomorrow...

I do! It is the Dainty Textured Blanket on Ravelry. Although, I did have to place 3 sc in the corners for the border not to curl. Here's a pic of what it looked like all done:

Hi Terri,

I'm thinking of crocheting my daughter and her husband a wedding ring afghan for their 1st anniversary too. My first son in law, still seems surreal to me. Good Luck on all your crocheting..

 

I really want to do this!! Ok, lets see..... Two girls at work are having babies, and I have until March for one of them...First anniversary gift for my son and his wife, I would love to make a crocheted bedspread. Finish the scarf for my daughter's boyfriend.... doll clothes are a biggie in my house this year! So many projects, so little time!! I'm in Ladies!!

Love what all the pics! All the ideas... the items getting done already.... Awesome!

 

Okay... so I made a pair of mittens today.

Not sure these are going to be for anyone on my list... they were really my practice pair. I've had this pattern in my head for months and finally got it out onto a hook and yarn. :whew

 

But ... they do look like something my mom might like... so I'll think about it!

 

Anyway... now that I have the mittens made... I can make more that are actually on my list of gifts! :hook

HI dear Joanne:

 

Those in the photos are not hooded cowls they are just infinity scarfs that I placed like that in the photos so it can be seen that one can place them over your heads too...

 

hugs

Lillibet

 

 

 

Lillibet! Love all your projects. Do you have a pattern for the hooded cowl? I made quite a few infinity scarves and cowls that I gave as gifts this past Christmas!

Tam, I love the mittens...and the yarn was a perfect choice for them.

Last year, I did sooooo well giving everyone something handmade. This year, well I guess I thought Christmas would wait for me to be ready, and it most certainly did NOT! So, the goal this year is once again to make a gift for everyone. Many will be crocheted, some sewn, some jewelry & some will be homemade spa products. Guess this is me diving in head first!

 

Ben's family (my inlaws):

Gale: jewelry set, spa basket, crocheted slippers or sewn purse/wallet

Dewayne: sewn firewood carrier, hat & scarf

Dale: crocheted slippers, hat & scarf

Angie: jewelry set, spa basket, crocheted slippers or sewn purse/wallet

Blake: hat & scarf, iPad sleeve

Tasha: jewelry set, spa basket, iPad sleeve

Nathan: crocheted slippers, hat & scarf

Alyssa: jewelry set, spa basket, crocheted slippers

Ashley: jewelry set & spa basket

 

My family:

Mom: pot holders, sewn apron, spa basket

Gary: crocheted slippers, hat & scarf

 

I don't talk to most of the rest of my immediate family, so that list was short! LOL

 

Ok now the BIG list of nieces & nephews & our kids

 

Jayden: hat, scarf & fingerless mitts, crocheted slippers

Bentley: hat, scarf & fingerless mitts, crocheted slippers

Hayden: hat, scarf & fingerless mitts, crocheted slippers

 

Nieces & Nephews:

Bri: Nook sleeve, crocheted slippers, jewelry set

Brooklyn: hat, scarf & fingerless mitts

Braydon: crocheted stuffed animal (to be determined)

Tristan: crocheted stuffed animal (to be determined)

Kymberly: crocheted slippers, hat, scarf & fingerless mitts

Levi: hat, scarf & fingerless mitts

 

Ok I think that is all, at least that I can think of right now. LOL OMGosh I have got to get busy!

Wow, I am super impressed by this list. Good luck with it!

Thanks for the plug, Judy. That is an easy pattern. So are all my patterns, actually. I'm too lazy to design complex patterns.

Hi there and happy new year to all my crochet friends here:

 

I am gonna join this as i already have begun to make gifts for 2013 christmas giving...

 

I only crochet for my Niece as family member since no one else appreciate anything hand made in my family...

 

I taught my sister to crochet so I dont make anything for her either she makes crocheted gifts too...

 

Now since i dont have more family members to gift to I make gifts for Bank tellers at our local branch..

 

I make gifts for the local animal hospital where I adopted my Foxie and Munchkin...

 

I make gifts for girls at Registration dept in hospital and also for the lady at billing there at the hospital ,, then i crochet for postal master and the mail man too...

 

And then of course for some swaps and friends as well...

So here is what I have made already and putting them in rubbermaid totes so i know what i've done so far and what else i got to make..

So here are photos of what i'm making,,, I have decided i want to make Cowls and also infinity scarfs..... then kitchen stuff too....

enjoy and I hope it serves as inspirations to all....

hugs

Lillibet

 

Moomoo what a beautiful selection of your work. I'm sure your gifts are appreciated.

These are really nice. Is that a variegated yarn? I love the colors and the way they turned out in the mittens.

Well, I am ashamed to have to report that I am still working on my grandsons birthday afghan. His birthday was last week Thursday. Luckily, I had a contingent plan! I guess the afghan can be for next Christmas or birthday.

 

The good thing about birthdays and Christmas... if you miss em this time, they come around again :lol

I really loved that pattern...and those who saw the finished product raved about it. I can see making that pattern in so many wonderful colors!

 

I just finished attaching the last square for the brder of the baby ghan. I want to make a simple border, then will call it done.

Then on to the next project.

This guy didn't end up quite as I planned, but since the new owner is a Weebles fan, I think it will go over well next Christmas.

 

Santa

soooo cute!

I DO love the original Ami, too... ;)

I would like to join. I am currently working on a thread Raggedy Ann doll for my sister's birthday gift. I haven't thought past that yet.
Welcome!!! That sounds like a wonderful project!
