It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas

Despite my lack of posts, I have been click click clicking away on the old needles, I even dusted off my crochet hooks and gave them some love this past week.

First up...I've been dying to make this jumper for ages. Unfortunately I didn't have enough yarn to make the full jumper (and the yarn was discontinued) so I turned it into a tank top. It was really easy and knitted up so much faster that I expected. I'm already planning a second one (with arms this time).


Eventually they will have buttons for eyes.

The hubby and I drink a lot of Starbucks, so cup cozies were in order and since I'm getting excited about Christmas they had to be holiday themed. I can't wait to take these for a spin. I've been stuck indoors all week with a poorly small person. A Starbucks will be very much enjoyed as soon as I can break free of all the germs! 

My new cup cozy. Can't wait to go to #starbucks again! #crochet #christmas


And finally a wreath brooch.

I'd forgotten how much I love to crochet. I can see more crocheted items in my immediate future. Expect lots of holiday themed things between now and Christmas too. I'm a child when it comes to this time of year, who can resist the prettiness of the twinkling lights, the glitter, the sparkle and overall eye candy everywhere? Not me! 

Happy Friday everyone and happy shopping to those trying to grab a bargain during Black Friday.

  1. Your owls tank-top came out lovely! What a great design this is, it's definitely worth a second sleeved version :)

  2. Lovely tank-top. Have a nice weekend. Regula

  3. I love that pullover. I am always favoriting owl patterns but have yet to knit one. I like yours as a tank. Those cup cozies are perfect. I may have to make a couple for gifts.

  4. I'm loving the tank top. What a fun modification!

  5. Lovely top!the cup cozies are soo sweet

  6. Everything looks great! I love the tank top. The owls are so cute:)

  8. Owls is one of my favorite patterns, although I've not made it...I'm a fan of Kate Davies designs..

    And yeah I've been crocheting much more than knitting lately...

  9. Lovely sweater. Please do post another pic once you've done the eyes. The eyes are so darling once they're done :)
