Here are some things I made for my mom this Christmas and thought I would share
crocheted Gingerbread House:
When I saw the article listing on Ravelry, I knew I had to make this gingerbread house! I did a lot of modifications to it, but only because I wanted it to be the way mom would like it without making a ton of mini gumdrops.
here's the magazine's version:
and here's my version:
I used a darker yarn by Red Heart and a bunch of random colors from Caron Simply soft.
The second gift is a curly scarf:
There was also a pattern in the Crochet Today! Nov/Dec issue for a scarf like this, and I finished it with that pattern but started with the one from Lionbrand Yarn http://www.lionbrand.com/patterns/80443AD.html
And third was this cute popcorn garland:
I'm sorry I don't have a better photo, I just wanted to get this out there
I got the pattern for the popcorn (so fun to play with, by the way!) from ravelry (here: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/popcorn-play-food), but it's a free pattern you can find here http://milehighmonkeys.com/freestuff.aspx
Thanks for looking! I really enjoyed making these gifts, and my mom loves them!
C&C welcome Hope everyone had a wonderful holiday season and will have a happy new year!
