gift-making season (aka Christmas elfing season) is here! :D :D :D

Really like this cardigan from Lion Brand Yarn. It’s loose-fitting so the measurements don’t need to be super exact, which makes it a nice gift to crochet :)

A bit steampunk and very festive, must give this a try. Earrings made from hex nuts from Cafe Craftea.


More hex nut goodness from Hello Glow. A trip to the hardware store is in order.

A beautiful pine cone pattern using corner to corner crochet — something I have yet to try! Would make a lovely pillow. From Make & Do Crew.
