Christmas Crochet (catch up)

Way back in October (Which I swear was a week ago) I told you about a Christmas CAL or Crochet Along that I was doing. I thought I’d give you a little catch up.

How Did I do?

Well, I could have done better, but I’m still happy. The baubles were first and I completed them in time. Here’s my little Robin and Reindeer baubles to go on our tree this year.

Next up I started on the coaster and the table mats. I managed two mats and all the coasters, but I’ve yet to finish the edging and lettering. I got a little distracted by crocheting this for my niece’s little boy.

It was so much fun and easy to make. I think I may make some more in different colours for my Etsy shop when I open it.

I have now started on my Christmas pillow because I’d like to get that done to go with our decorations. I’ve done the back, now it’s just the front to complete. then I’ll finish off the coasters. I’m not sure I will have time to finish the Christmas Stocking.

Christmas Crochet Gifts

My daughter has been asking me what I would like for Christmas and I really couldn’t think of anything other than chocolate. But then I thought of how much I enjoy my crochet so I asked her to take a look at the Deramores site and pick a crochet pack. You can buy a pattern and all the wool you need to make it. I can’t wait to see what she’s bought for me.

If you have lots of spare wool and not so much cash, then you can still check out the site for some really fabulous free patterns for crocheting or knitting.

Crochet Projects

I love to crochet, it’s so relaxing and I love it when something comes together and I can say I made this.

Last year I joined a CAL with Simply Crochet magazine and each month I learned a new stitch to make a block for a beautiful blanket.

The blanket came with two options, one was Stonewashed, the other Colour Crafter. I chose the colour crafter and it turned out like this.

Colour Crafter Blanket CAL

Not only have I made a lovely, soft, cosy and colourful blanket, but I’ve learnt a lot of new stitches. Some of them I struggled with, but mostly it was straight forward.

Now for the good news, if you would like to try to can find the details over on the Simply Crochet Magazine site

There are even You Tube videos which can help you with the more trickier stitches. But it’s not as difficult as it looks. I still consider myself a beginner and I managed to make one.
