It's That Time Again!


It's that time again -- the holidays -- and some of the yarn companies start including holiday patterns in their email newsletters. I love the Twelve Days of Christmas from Caron. This beautiful crochet Christmas Tree Throw is Day One of their Twelve Days of Christmas. Be sure to check out their web site and sign up for their Twelve Days of Christmas!

There are TWELVE days of Christmas in America? I must move there.
Or not, unless the days happen after December 24 since I usually don't have enough time to finish everything :D

Your blog is all snowy blue like an ice cold winter day!

Hi Snap,

Only if we are crafty enough to knit or crochet...some of us are
incapable of those particular arts.

Fun pattern though.

I've been thinking about making an afghan but I'm not sure I want it to be a Christmas theme....although I really like the one you've shown.

I used to be able to crochet when I was a teen. but alas that was a looooong time ago. Now I just admire everyone else's work:)

That is a gorgeous throw! I'm going to bookmark it.

Snap, do you make throws like this? I wish I knew how. I still have one my mom made me, many years ago. I treasure her stitches. There's nothing like handmade!

I can imagine myself curled up in that chair, under the blanket with a couple of good books and a hot cup of tea.

Isn't that gorgeous!

I wish I had more talent in that area of crafting, but I've never pursued it. My mother could have made this. I too have a throw (afghan) that my mother made me. It's pink, which I was really into when I was twelve, but doesn't go with much in my house now. Still, she made it and it's important to me so I've kept it.

That is really a beautiful warm throw. I am still in my studio working away and saw that you had visited my post. When Snap visits I stop what I am doing as I always love to hear from you. Hugs, Sharon

Love your Christmas 'throw' Snap... I have one of those--but mine is not Christmas... I'm not sure who made mine, but it was in my family for a long time.

Great "12 Days" post.
Hugs,
Betsy

That is beautiful, I had to look twice to convince myself it was crocheted! Really, very lovely.
