HAPPY CHRISTMAS! I hope you’re having a wonderful day. What better way to celebrate than by looking through the wonderful projects made for the 2011 PlanetJune Christmas Crochet-Along? Thank you to everyone who joined in; as always it’s so much fun to see what you’ve made!
(For speed, I’m just giving credit with participants’ Ravelry usernames.) Let’s take a look:
AKmtnnymph made this clever Santa-themed Gift Box
theMarkofSMB used my Christmas Trees, PocketAmi Christmas, and Yeti and Bigfoot patterns to create this set of ‘Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer’ characters
Fatals-attraction made this lovely group of Christmas Trees
arbitrarily’s PocketAmi set
Enphra made a set of 3 Gift Boxes embellished with ribbon roses
crochet-girl made some PocketAmi (with the Elf adapted into Santa)…
…and more PocketAmi by crochet-girl!
BanuyeGharbi made these two Gift Boxes but will be re-working the pink one at a tighter gauge so it holds its shape as well as the lovely blue one does!
jukatca made this sweet display of a Christmas Tree and Gift Box (and a collection of all my non-crocheted poinsettia tutorials!)
yaney used variegated yarn for her Gift Box
PocketAmi by esmerelda62
Lightblue made black-tipped Reindeer Antlers
CrochetChrisie’s Gift Box is topped with my felt poinsettia
Very effective use of rainbow-coloured yarn from klopferli
Candy Canes by theMarkofSMB
And now for a big pile of Poinsettias, Christmas Puddings, Candy Canes and Christmas Trees:
