I can’t believe today is the last year of 2012 already! I’ve been enjoying some downtime away from the computer, but wanted to put up a quick post with a recap of some of the projects I crocheted as gifts this year.
This isn’t all of them – I sent off some of the gifts before remembering to take a picture – but this includes scarves for my mom, neighbor, niece and nephew, a wrap for my sister, and a hat for my brother in law.
Here is a close up of the hat – since it was my first one and I haven’t posted any hat pics yet:
It’s mostly single crochet except for the last couple rows which are a double crochet.
I made two more hats after this. One for my hubs with a thick chunky yarn:
I also made a third hat for my dad – finished it up on the plane on my way to Denver for the holidays. But I forgot to take a picture of it. Boo!
All together I crocheted the following Christmas gifts this year:
- 8 scarves (plus 1 for me)
- 1 shawl
- 3 hats
Not bad for just picking up crochet a few months ago.
I’ve definitely decided that I LOVE to crochet – I’m addicted to yarn – and I can’t wait to try more fun projects in the near year.
What fun handmade projects did you make or buy this year?
