New crocheted FO’s

I have a few projects that I thought I would share, I’m debating on what to start next…. Probably another shawl 🙂 And I have a slip stitch and lace scarf that I’m working up (and I’m still working on my freeform project but that one will take a while!)

First up, I finished the Elise shawl and I love this pattern!!! Highly recommend it 🙂 Especially if you’re not to sure about starting a lace project, I love lace (and thankfully it’s making a comeback in crochet!) but it can be intimidating if you’ve never done it before.

Next is a skinny ruffle scarf that I made up the pattern for (will be making plenty more, it’s a fun and quick project) I used this in a challenge on the Ravelry forum Nerd Wars (Go Team Pineapple!!!!!) This is my second tournament but first time I’ve actually had time to participate so hopefully I’ll a few more projects to turn in.

And lastly, I crocheted a lacy necklace and added a really pretty pendant (I will probably be making more of these as well, I love thread crochet but necklaces, earrings, and bracelets are about all I have the patience to do, no doilies 😦 Which is especially bad since I started crocheting because I fell in love with a pansy doily :-))

MERRY CHRISTMAS

Hope everyone has a nice day!

I finally finished MOST of my gift making, but Todd will not be getting his socks (I tried! but I still have 15 rows to go and no time)

But I did finish a necklace for someone! I may post a picture after she opens it 🙂

Christmas trees! (and gifts and disappointing shows)

The tree is up and decorated!! And better yet, I have been clipping along at a good pace on my christmas shopping and crafting (I might get actually get more done then I thought!) for instance the above pic is a present for my very favorite aunt that I finished last night.

On to some less Christmas-y stuff:

Has anyone been watching the new episodes of Leverage? I’m extremely disappointed in them to be honest (and it wasn’t fair of Eliot to describe that sandwich and make me hungry) maybe next weeks will be better?
