Mini Stockings and pot holders


I was looking through some patterns I bought from a sale last year at e-Patterns Central.  One of the patterns I had to make were these mini stockings!  They are in the book Christmas in Crochet, Holiday 2013 and designed by Mickie Akins.  The stockings measure about 2" and I used size 10 thread with a 1.75 mm hook.  


I've also been making mini pot holders!  These are from the book Silhouette Hot Mats designed by Fances Hughes.  I used Aunt Lydias crochet thread and a 1.75 mm hook.

Here are some other things I've been working on-

This is a set of 2 pot holders (normal sized lol)

One of the new bookmarks I listed in my etsy shop.  It has a snowflake charm on the tassel.

Small cross bookmarks in the colors red, light blue, and muted lavender.  

I've been packaging lots of orders!  For this one I used a snowflake bag and ribbon :D

The top and bottom pictures are of two different angels.  I have three more of them to make.  The pattern is Pineapple Seraphim designed by Cylinda Mathews.

Christmas Crochet


It's almost one month until Christmas and I wanted to share some things I've been making!  The photo above is a pine tree bookmark and doily.  I will write down a pattern for the doily soon. 

This is one of the angel tree toppers before starching.  The pattern is called Pineapple Seraphim designed by Cylinda Mathews.  

Bookmark with a snowflake charm on the tassel.

Snowflakes!

A bookmark with silver ribbon woven through it and a Santa charm on the tassel.

This is one of my favorite patterns, Round Doily designed my Mayumi Kawai.  I used Artiste size 10 thread in the color Poppy Red with a 1.75 mm hook.

There are more things that I'm working on and will post again soon!  Here is one last photo of cute holiday packaging for some bookmarks :D

Snowflakes, doilies, and a mystery


Time to start making holiday decorations, even though i'm not finished making things for Halloween yet lol!  I've made some snowflakes that still need to be starched.  These are designed by Kathryn A. Clark from the book White Christmas in Thread Crochet.  I'm working on having a few sets of them available in my etsy shop soon.

Here are some other projects I've been working on-

This is doily number 10/Precious, designed by Patricia Kristoffersen.  I used Aunt Lydias size 10 thread and a 1.75 mm hook.

Pineapple fingerless gloves designed by Shirley Patterson.  

Pineapple Seraphim tree topper.  The pattern is designed by Cylinda Mathews.

I might try changing the outer rounds of this doily and leaving the center as it is.

Becharmed designed by Patricia Kristoffersen.  I used Artiste size 10 thread in the color papaya with a 1.75 mm hook.
  
Bernat and Jo-Ann are having a mystery stitch along!  So far three out of four clues have been released.  The colors i'm using for my blanket are vintage white, light teal, country blue, and sailors delight.  I also went with a larger hook, 10 mm.  My helper decided to take a nap in the sun while I was taking pictures lol.

Spiders


These spiders are quick and easy to make.  There are 2 sizes, the spider measures about 2" and the spiderling measures about 1 1/2".  All you need to make them is a small amount of thread, size 3 or size 10, and either a 2.75 mm or 1.75 mm hook.  The pattern is available for free here- Crochet Spider and Spiderling.  

In the pattern the ends are used to make a loop for hanging but they can be woven in if you prefer.  For the spider I used Aunt Lydias size 3 thread and for the spiderling I used Nazli Gelin Garden size 10 thread.




Here are different color ideas from some of the spiders found around Azeroth.  Clockwise from the upper left hand side they are the felspider, crystal spider, twilight spider, and ash spiderling.

I hope that you enjoy making the spiders and also try not to get eaten by any!
