Forget Hallowe'en crafts,
they're just not my thing.
Let's move on to Christmas,
with a festive stocking.
Finally! A type of sock that I can ENJOY crocheting! It doesn't have to fit anyone and I'm not required to make another one that could pass as being somewhat symmetrical. I fa la la la love it. I used a pattern I found on Lionbrand.com and the recommended Homespun yarn. The only real modification I made was to round out the toe with a few extra sc2togs than the pattern specified.
This is hubby's stocking. Mine is still just a ball of green yarn waiting to meet its destiny.
In other news, I attended a bridal shower today for a soon-to-be cousin. The gift didn't involve any crafting, but I managed to have some fun with the wrapping paper. Take a peek:
This was inspired by something I saw on Pinterest, so I can't take full credit. We created a wordsearch using a free web tool. We made a puzzle based on key words about the Happy Couple (names, places, dates, adjectives). I wrapped the box in Kraft Paper and stuck on the crossword using double sided tape. The hearts were punched out of some fun paper I found in the basement and the turquoise ribbon was also secured with double-sided tape.
Inspired by the gift-wrap fun, we even stopped at IKEA on the way home from the shower and I grabbed a few rolls of lovely Christmas wrapping paper. Grey with snowflakes and tiny white polka dots. Lovely. Bring on the holidays!
