Crafty Inspiration

Super Crafty Lori

My yarny peeps are crafting holiday decorations like crazy!!! Such inspiration! Lori and Natalie are both crocheting tree garlands. I love both patterns! Lori's is the Grandma Tree; Natalie's is the Tree Garland in Crochet Today Magazine.

Yesterday, the Sometimes Sunday group came over for our First Annual Holiday Yarn Swap Celebration Crochet-a-thon-a-rama-a-go-go.

Carol, Lori, Julie, Ellen, Beth

It was really fun. We all ended up with some GREAT new yarn. Lori baked a divine pear tart, we had lots of other treats and much fun!

Are you crafting any holiday decorations? I've been inspired to try the Grandma Tree pattern!

Those are great! Did you all just make up the patterns? I'd love to try and make some myself! :)

Ellen, your trees look so cute! I'm so inspired to finish my third garland so I can make the 3D tree. See it here:

SO sad to miss the sometimes Sunday celebration and Lori's tart!

I am going to whip up some granny trees next!

I have not made any holiday garland or decorations yet! I want to make something to give my family who I only see around the holidays but I haven't done so. I have been busy teaching high school 10th - 12th graders to crochet scarfs and beanies and they are loving it. They call themselves the crochet kids. I would love the pattern for the tree garlands! It looks like you all arehaving fun!

Hey Simply Me, the patterns for both garlands are linked in this post, above! The Grandma Tree is free, the Tree Garland is in the current issue of "Crochet Today" Magazine.

Love the garlands! Happy chanukah Ellen. I am so behind, I didn't even get any decorations out other than menorahs, and now that its the 7th night I wish I had at least put my dreidel collection on the table for the week. Have fun at the the We Ho holiday event.

Those garlands are so inspiring! My list of who's getting knitted gifts this year keeps getting smaller and smaller, and the list of things for myself keeps growing. :)

Hi Ellen. I LOVE Natalie's tree garland. Sadly, the Nov/Dec issue of Crochet Today is NOWHERE to be found. The January issue is already in stores. (What's up with that?) Anyway, do you know anyone who has an issue I can borrow? I'm dying to make that tree garland.
Thanks, Suzette

Suzette! E-mail me privately and I'll hook you up with the pattern!
