Playing Catch-up...

Hello all!  I hope everyone has had a good week.

I am playing catch-up in today's post.  These are Christmas presents I made and gave last month.  Short, quick, totally-enjoyable-to-make presents.  You can also see them on my Ravelry Projects page.  I am ReneeSpear401 on Ravelry.

I made skinny scarves for two teen girls -- my niece and my son's girlfriend.  The first is One Skein Scarf from the book, "The Happy Hooker".  You can get the pattern here.  Mine is the Paton's version.

The other scarf is My Dream Scarf with Fringe.  Also found on Ravelry, here.  I have discovered I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE making skinny scarves.  They are fast, fun, and done in one evening.  Perfect!

Several other family members received the easiest of all -- garlands, buntings, hangie thingies, whatever you want to call those things!

Crocheted Hearts Garland, on Ravelry.  Easy peasy!

Christmas Garlands #1, #2, #3.  I think I was looking for the quickest-ever garland to make.  It seemed to be a toss-up.

And last, but not least:  homemade chocolate-covered peanut clusters -- for everyone on the list.  (Yeah, I could have used a few more peanuts.  These were the end of the batch of about 150+ clusters.)

There, that's done!  I've been meaning to post these FO's since just after Christmas.

Here's wishing you a fun and safe weekend!

  1. Everything looks so nice - you have a lucky family. :)

  2. Thank you ma'am. I'm looking to catch up to you, but I don't think I'll make it! LOL.
