Crochet Gifts


Lately I've crocheted lots of Pine Tree Wrist Warmers just because it is such a quick and fun project to make. I came up with this pattern last fall already, but I never came around to complete it... But now I got the Pine Tree Wrist Warmer bug! The pairs are piling up and have become my favorite crochet gift of the year. These Pine Tree Wrist Warmers were gifted to my closest Swedish girlfriends here in Switzerland, wrapped up in cute gift bags together with a mini bottle of champagne and a pretty snow globe with a Swedish cottage inside. I have to say it was spot on a gift success!

The pattern is a work in progress and if I'm lucky I might be able to release it before the holidays starts, but I can't promise anything. I would love for you all to try this pattern out to make some "last minute" Christmas gifts. They are whipped up in just a couple of hours. Such a super cool little WiP.

I have great plans for 2017 and my crochet designs. 2016 was a crap year (pardon my language) for pattern writing. Many of my half finished patterns will be completed in 2017 and added to my Etsy store, and many more ideas are brewing in my head. These last couple of months I feel like I have done a big U-turn with My Rose Valley and I'm really getting back into my happy place, just like it used to be. It makes me incredibly happy and I just want to say THANK YOU to you all for your continuous support and encouragement.

Today I have a long list of "Have To's" to accomplish as we only have one more week to go before the holidays start. First up is the recycling station followed by house chores and last minute Christmas shopping, dropping off kids at friend's houses, mail a few last Christmas cards and when all that is done I'm hoping to squeeze in some crochet time or pattern writing time. Another pair of Pine Tree Wrist Warmers is on my hook in bright Christmas red. I know the perfect person to gift them to.

  5. They're lovely, gorgeous texture. And so useful. I wear them when I'm typing, it's cold around here and we try hard not to put the heating on most of the time. So warm things to wear are essential. A long list of things to be done here as well. I hope you have a good week and get them all done! CJ xx
