Crochet Angels

I don't understand why I keep coming back to look at Christmas craft ideas. Maybe I just don't want to complete the 3 started projects that are sitting in my "project" bin. The bin is filling up, even as I sit and order new crafts.


Blocking large knitted projects must be a pain. Maybe that is why I like to knit scarfs and baby blankets- no blocking problems there!

The spiral shawl will be beautiful. What intricate work.

The baby bears afghan looks adorable. It might be fun, as my grandson's room has a bears' crib set and wallpaper border. I better try to get the set, before the outgrows bears!

Great scarfs- and I agree scarfs are mindless knitting.
I am working on a scarf that is also on a diagnal. I did not realize that I would really have to concentrate on the increases and decreased. I have only ripped it out once.
I think I am going to redo it with a varigated yarn- might look nicer than the suede yarn I was trying to use.
