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. :)
