Ornament Coaster

Here's a fun little coaster, perfect for a cup of cocoa or glass of eggnog! Tis the season with this ornament coaster pattern found here. I used cotton yarn and an H hook. I made it one round smaller than the original pattern. Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

A little gift for doing dishes...

I've been working on a few dishcloths to give as little Christmas gifts...(this link is such a quick and easy pattern.)
When it comes to making dishcloths, I really like I Love This Cotton from Hobby Lobby....
It is very soft, easy to work with, and the skein is large enough for a couple of projects.

Here is how I am going to package these dishcloths for gifts....a cute stocking stuffer or 'thinking of you' idea...
I bought a small bottle of dish soap...probably around a dollar at Walmart. I folded the dishcloth and tied a ribbon to hold it onto the bottle.
I added a cute little tag and wrapped it in a cellophane bag.

Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Snowman soup coaster...

A cute little coaster to go with a snowman soup gift...
I made a flat circle with white cotton yarn, then added the snowman details with embroidery floss. 
Who wouldn't love a cup cocoa....or chai...with this guy?

A new little scarf...

I made this little scarf using size 3 how it turned out. I tried to take pics, but it's hard to get a good photo...
Here it is, paired with a pretty brooch... I debated about leaving it open or turning it into an infinity scarf, but decided just to leave it open. That way it can be worn as a traditional scarf, or looped around and closed with a pretty accessory.  Here are a few more pics...

It was pretty quick and easy to make. I just did 6 dc for the center piece, then added the edging using this chart.  If you wanted a wider scarf, you could just make the center strip using more dc. I made it long enough to wrap around twice.  Thanks for checking in and have a great day!
