Hi I am new. Just joined, from South Africa. Love to crochet! This is something I have made as a gift for a little girl.

Daisy change purse

A last minute gift for my sister. She said she wanted a change purse to take with her to the gym, so I crocheted this little one with some left over yarn.

This was my first attempt at adding a zipper, and I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn’t that difficult.

I just made two more Christmas presents. These are my little mini Geometric Pillows.

 They just measure about 22cm; they are very cute for a girl’s room.

I made the same way has the Bobbles pillow, only this time I used geometric crochet to decorate the front.

Here are my final two Christmas presents:

I bought my grandmother a shirt for Christmas and figured some hangers would be nice. Next time I will use nicer yarn. This stuff drove me crazy.

I totally messed up a little hat for my best friend’s daughter, so I had to hurry up and crochet something. I decided on this penguin since I got her some penguin pajamas.

And here is my second attempt at a hat. I don’t know what it is with me and hats, but I can’t do them.

At least I found a use for this one. 🙂

I wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Holidays!

My family decided to pick names for Christmas presents this year and I got my cousin Jamie. I bought her a blue and gray turtleneck sweater, so I whipped up this scarf to match.

New Theme?

Well hello there everyone! Although we’re looking for a replacement for Eve, I am still here as your co-editor. I’ve just realised that our Christmas-Along theme was due to end on December 1st. I propose that, as Christmas is still a few weeks away, we extend the theme until January 1st. That way, we’ll have time to show off any last minute gifts and ornaments we make! Is that okay with everyone?

Assuming it is, we’ll be looking for a new theme to begin January 1st, 2008. Any ideas for that? I’ll start a new poll when we have some suggestions. Here are a few to start us off:

  • Amigurumi (again!)  – there’s no such thing as too much ami fun!
  • Bags/purses
  • Granny squares and items made from granny squares

I’m sure we can do better than just 3 ideas though… Please leave a comment with your ideas or suggestions for the next theme! And happy crocheting 🙂
