Well, I meant to post my Christmas crafting right after Christmas when all gifts had been given, but I managed to get waylaid by various and sundry other stuff. On the downside the blog is lonely. On the upside we’ve got a freshly redone bathroom, purged a crapload (that’s an official measurement, btw) of hoarded books, and I’ve embarked on an epic closet sorting/purging project.
So that’s good, right?
Anyhoo, on to the belated crafting roundup!
Now that I have a wee babe to keep a constant eye on, I had to keep things pretty simple. And what, I ask you, is more simple and rewarding than super quick to crochet up coasters? I could knock one of these out any time I had a few spare minutes and they added up quickly into pretty piles of goodness.
The yarn is just various skeins of Noro Kureyon, and the pattern is Motif #30, from the book “Beyond the Square; Crochet Motifs,” by Edie Eckman. (Rav link)
My mother was all atwitter over the potholders I did for the swap earlier this year, so she got a couple for her kitchen.
The yarn is my own worsted two-ply handspun from my “Sweetpea” colorway and the pattern is the Brrr Baby Beanie.
