A Few (handmade) Last-Minute Gifts πŸŽ

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Are you still frantically looking for another gift idea? Wanna make something? 😁

I found a few lovely things that can be made in just a few short hours.

How about a warm & cozy

1.) Infinity Scarf

I made this one in appr. 3 hours (and I’m not super fast 😜)

You need

4 skeins of a super bulky yarn (#6) – I used ‘Lionbrand Hometown USA’*

1 crochet hook L (8mm)

Special StitchV-st = (Dc, ch1, Dc) in indicated st or space

Setup Row: Ch 22, V-stitch in 5th ch from hook, *skip 2 ch, 3 dc in next ch; repeat from * to last 2 ch, skip 1 ch, dc in last ch. Turn

Pattern row: Ch 3 (counts as 1 dc), *V-st in second dc of first 3-dc group, 3 dc in ch-1 space of next V-Stitch; rep from * to end, Dc in 2nd ch from turning chain. Turn.

Repeat pattern row until your scarf is (at least) 57″

Sew the short ends together, and weave in the ends (Sorry πŸ˜‰)

When making an Infinity Scarf I always twist the scarf once –

I think that gives it a nice ‘knotted’ effect when worn. 😊

2.) A Headband

This adjustable Headband really only takes about 2 hours.

It fits any size head, because it ties in the back 😊

You can find the pattern here

3.) Elizabeth Stitch Boot Cuffs

I found these gorgeous boot cuffs on Pinterest – and the link actually led somewhere 😜

It brought me here – to Dabbles and Babbles – a website full of wonderful ideas πŸ˜ƒ

Here are the boot cuffs

A little hint – when you click on the link, one of the first things you see is an offer to buy an ‘ad free’ version of the pattern. If you keep scrolling you’ll get to the pattern though – with a few ads here and there πŸ˜‰

I hope this was/is of some help. If you need more ideas, please stop by again tomorrow… I have a few more things to show you. 😁

Until then πŸ’•

Hello and happy Sunday my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today’s door reveals one of my favorite cartoon drawings 😍 It is a ‘rerun’ from a ‘ Weekend Chuckle’ post – but it’s so cute I couldn’t resist showing it to you again 😁

Awwww πŸ˜ƒ

Have a wonderful, fabulous, lovely day! πŸ’•

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

We’re inching closer to Christmas…and still no sign of snow around here 😒

Just brown and grey trees and bushes everywhere…so all I can do is dream of walks through a Winter Wonderland β˜ƒοΈ

Who wouldn’t love to stroll down this beautiful street? 😍

Have a wonderful, dreamy weekend! πŸ’•

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today I’d like to show you my inside ‘Winter Wonderland’ 😊

Last year I decided to forgo the traditional Christmas tree, and set up a group of smaller trees instead. And I must say, I’m quite fond of my wee forest 😍

How do you decorate for the holidays? I would love to hear about your traditions. πŸŽ„πŸ•―πŸŽ…πŸΌ

Have a lovely evening! 😘
