Well, I’m still too new to crocheting to give much in the way of homemade Christmas gifts… but my family, through their gifts to me, did a lot to encourage me to keep going with the hobby! I received:

  • Sweety Yarn (80% acrylic, 10% mohair, 10% wool), 200g (7oz), grey – 1 ball
  • Bernat Handicrafter Yarn (100% cotton), 42.5g (1.5oz), “Country Side Ombre” – 2 balls
  • Wendy Rembrandt Double Knitting Yarn (46% Superfine Merino Wool, 37% Acrylic, 17% Polyester), 50g (1.76oz), dark dusty blue – 2 balls
  • Boye Crochet Hook Organizer Case
  • Susan Bates Crochet Hook – 2.75mm (US C-2)
  • Susan Bates Crochet Hook – 4.00mm (US G-6)
  • Black zippered bag to carry my projects

Now, I just have to get out of my crocheting slump and put them all to good use. 🙂

The only crocheted gift I gave this year was a snowflake attached to our gift to the caretakers of our building. They loved it, though, so I am encouraged to do more next year!
