Frantic Knitter's Follow Friday

Hello all you fabulous knitters and crochet artists out there. I hope you all survived your holidays with fingers and thumbs intact, and that no one jabbed out anyone's eye with a knitting needle. I myself have been sorely tempted on more that one occasion.

Follow along if you want to join the linky list. If not, just leave me a comment and a follow. I love meeting new people of like mind, especially fellow knitters and crocheters.

Happy New Year everyone!

Fa la la la Follow Friday...

Good morning and I hope this finds your Christmas Eve to be Merry and bright. I am taking a break from knitting flowers and crocheting little wreaths to bid you a Merry Christmas and a Happy Follow Friday.

Question of the week:
What are you going to do on this wonderful holiday? Did you make any special projects this year for your family? I myself have learned to make wreaths and holly.

I am going to my knitting teacher's house for a wonderful dinner. In preparation, my husband and I will be making a Chocolate Blackout Cake, a tossed salad and a corn souffle.

Well, off to get a bit of sleep before I am due back at the bookstore.

Merry Christmas everyone!

Follow Friday with some snowflakes!

Good evening fellow crafters and book lovers. It is Follow Friday and I have found a great blog that totally fits the holiday season. Snowcatcher has a great selection of snowflakes that make me want to get my hook and start learning! Great job on an awesome blog.

Crochet wreaths.

This time of year us my favorite for making small homemade gifts to share. These crochet wreaths I learned in knitting class are perfect.

Chain 4-10, depending on how large you want the wreath pin to be. Slip stitch to join and make double or triple crochets all the way around the chain, going through the center hole. Pull and space your stitches. When you get to the end, slip stitch to join, tuck in your yarn tails, add bows, beads and hot glue a pin back onto it. Done! Only takes a few minutes and you have a heartwarming gift to share with a friend.

Merry Christmas everyone!

New knitting book.

I love Christmas parties where you do gift exchanges on a theme. Thus year, my knitting class/group had a wonderful holiday party and I got a great book on circular knitting. What a perfect gift. With all the different patterns and knowledge about circular knitting, I was thrilled.
