Once Again, Some More Crocheting for Christmas Presents

Here's some more slippers I made. This time I have one pair for a man and one pair for a woman. The woman's slippers I made without a cuff because I was running short of yarn. I actually had to half-way frog the first slipper I made because I was short of yarn for the second one I was making. No biggie, the slippers turned out ok. I've had to do this before--as a matter of fact, I'm wearing a pair now that I did not put a cuff on. If you look at November's posts, you will see some other slippers I made with this pattern. Here's the free online pattern for these.

This is a scarf I made for my mil for Christmas. I used bamboo yarn and the free pattern you can find here . I love this yarn! It is so soft and glides over my fingers and hook very easily when I crochet with it. It is a bit pricey though but I lucked out and found it on sale and a Christmas present for my mil is a special thing anyway.

This is a potholder that I made to go in the giftbasket I'm creating for my aunt's Christmas present. Can't remember where I got the pattern but I do know it is free online somewhere. Basically, it is 2 squares and the edges are crocheted together. When I get the basket put together I'll try to remember and post a pic. I'm kind of forgetful sometimes so I hope you'll be patient with me. :)


  1. Very pretty work! I may have to make myself a scarf just like yours, lol. Just another project to my never ending list, lol.

  2. I'm happy you liked it. I need to find the time to make something for me too! I think I'd like a hat and scarf out of the bamboo yarn. Thanks for leaving the nice note. S.

  3. All beautiful!

    I love that scarf and might have to break down and try some of that bamboo yarn. It intrigues me.

  4. I really liked working with the bamboo yarn. I'm interested in hearing from someone as far as the durability of it. Let me know what you think when you work with it.
