And then I was inspired, for some reason, to knit a Slip Stitch Striped dishcloth:
Still working on my tension... :^/ I decided to make another one in red and be all set for Christmas. And hopefully improve my tension issues.
And then late in the week I remembered that I was to host a CAL today in the Our Happy CAL Place on Ravelry. Fortunately, this week's theme is Quick & Easy. I thought about several different projects, but when this Christmas Holly Embellishment crossed my computer screen, I decided it fit the bill:
I'm little embarrassed showing such a large close-up of this project as the leaves are all wrong. See... when I pieced this together, I didn't realize I had the leaves upside down 'till I finished and compared mine to the original. In the original, the "vein" running down the center of the leaves is prominent, but it's totally lost in my leaves above. Ah well... it was super quick and super easy. And if you don't look too close, it's kind cute and perfectly acceptable for tying onto a gift package on Christmas day.
And then yesterday I got the great idea to crochet some more Linen Stitch Scarves for Christmas gifts. I'm hoping to make three (in different colors), with the first one I started being black and gray with an accent of red:
So that's this past week in crochet! To see what other Yoppers are up to visit our group on Ravelry.
