Holiday Stashdown Challenge: Weeks 29 & 30

(Join along with me any time if you need a head start or moral support for your holiday crafting.  You can read more details here.)

I didn’t post a holiday crafting update last week.  Most of my crafting time lately has been used up on several secret design projects, but I did pick up some quick holiday projects, too.

I’ve been working on some ornaments.

This tiny sweater is actually finished now.

I made another one of these cute sweater ornaments, and I also started two of these granny tree ornaments.

I'm looking for a coordinating brown yarn for the trunks.

And… I decided I wanted a fun, no thinking project to work on in between my designs.  I’ve been eyeing Queen Anne’s Lace scarves for a while, but didn’t want to use the brain space to try and figure out the free patterns I found.  I decided to plunk down some cash for a well written pattern that explains everything: Anne by MK Carroll.

The investment was totally worth it because I can crochet away without trying to interpret the pattern.  The pattern is written and also charted with the written pattern side by side again.  I’ve just started this scarf, and it will be for my best friend from high school, CG.  I don’t plan to give it to her until her birthday in March, though.

My plan is to make this long and narrow, kind of like a boa.  CG is an artist and dresses with a lot of bold colors, so she could actually pull off that look.  I’m using this great yarn I bought during my trip to Philadelphia.
