Typical of me, always late to the party. Just in case you're still savoring the holiday and you're not sick of holiday pictures yet, here are a few of our Christmas photos that I should have shared before Christmas...
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas. Ours was spectacular. Many memories were made with family, hearty food and good times spent together. My daughter, Carlee, even pulled a tooth on Christmas Eve night so we had a visit from Santa and the Tooth Fairy on the same night. And then, the most memorable part, Sunday morning we awoke to an amazing sight...
**I'm so happy that so many have been enjoying my Chain Tree tutorial! I truly appreciate every comment I've recieved. Thanks bunches to everyone who's been stopping by.**
I seem to be 'hooked' on short but sweet crochet projects like this crocheted pennant.
The flower triangle pattern can be found in my all-time favorite crochet book Crochet Adorned. Oh how I wish I had a little one so I could justify buying Linda's newest book Little Crochet (the booties on the cover so darling).
The red and green yarn came from my stash. I believe they are both a wool and acrylic blend. The cream colored yarn is Stitch Nation by Debbie Stroller. This was my first time purchasing and using this yarn and I love it. It's 100% Peruvian wool -- I bet it would felt up beautifully -- and I can get it at my local Michael's. (sorry, I didn't mean to turn this post into an advertisement but I really love this yarn!).
I'm really loving how the pennant turned out. I think I must make one to hang year-round...after the holidays, of course. Hope everyone is having a lovely, low stress, joy-full holiday week!
