Christmas is comingâ€¦
The holiday season is creeping ever closer, and Iâ€™ve been planning out my seasonal crochet over the past few weeks to ensure I make the most of every bit of time! I should probably be prioritising presents, but I have to admit that top of my list at the moment is Cassie Wardâ€™s stunning Granny Jumper â€“ that perfect shade of Christmas green has me captivated! Iâ€™ve also been eyeing up Sarah Reedâ€™s pudding-themed tea set, which is just the thing for an instant festive feel on my coffee table!
Weâ€™ve also got a great selection of patterns that will make for perfect presents, from Elisabeth Davis de Herraizâ€™s stunning shawl to Dedri Uysâ€™s colourful basket set. And if youâ€™re short on time, then Helda Panagaryâ€™s pretty bracelets are a super-quick make that can be hooked in any recipientâ€™s favourite colours.
Of course, one thing Iâ€™ve absolutely got to make time for is Sarah Shrimptonâ€™s adorable Rudolph amigurumi â€“ every mantelpiece needs one! Finished off with safety eyes and that glowing red nose from this issueâ€™s free amigurumi notions set, heâ€™s a simple project that should be done in a few evenings. Perfect for a foggy Christmas Eve!
Merry Christmas, and happy crochetingâ€¦
