Summer has been busy! I thought it might be a slow time for the blog, but I continually heap stuff onto my own plate (why do I do that?!). At the beginning of the year, I thought about planning a Crochet Christmas-in-July series, but didn’t get going on the designing until late spring. I planned to do 7 Christmas-themed projects over a week. I got almost totally done with the 6th project and decided to switch gears and focus on Christmas Gift Ideas. It seemed to make more sense since Holiday gifts seem to take the most time each year. Plus, now I have even more Christmas stuff to share in a few months. We will be busy this fall and winter ;) 

Due to my last minute change of heart, I will only have FIVE projects for the week instead of SEVEN. Lame, I know, but if this goes well, I will revamp it and make it bigger and better for next year. Be sure to give me your feedback so I know how you feel about it! (comment on this blog post, reply to my emails or leave comments on my facebook page!)

Since the week is focusing on Christmas Gift Ideas, each pattern is from a different category. The patterns will include a clutch, a chevron hat, and easy and comfy scarf, a case for an iPad or tablet  and some darling slippers. I think you might be tempted to either keep your project for yourself or make an extra!

  1. I love the ski hat. My friend and I make hats and mittens fo donate come winter for school-age children who don’t have the proper outdoor clothing. Thank you for clever ideas.
