    For Christmas I’m making my mom a homespun shawl. It’s my own patternand I’m really enjoying it. It’s 2 feet in width and 5 feet long it’s simple double crochet in the baroque color. And I have alot of lionbrand yarn especially homespun and hometown USA.

    Another great gift is a pair of plush puppy slippers. They can easily be made in a day, and are oh so cute. My daughter is getting a pair in her stocking.

    My co-workers and I adopted a shelter family for Christmas gift giving. The grandfather asked for a scarf and hat I’m making the Brisbane scarf and the Sparrow Creek Hat with Wool Ease Thick and Quick in Charcoal.

    I can’t find the photo of the oval crocheted bath rug that Zontee just finished out of Baby’s First. I know it was made with two strands of Babys First but I have no idea how many balls it takes to make a bath rug….can anyone help answer my question? I would love to make some for gifts this year (Zontee said it took her two hours to make with a P crochet hook)

    Hi Betsy, like I said on Ravelry, I uploaded a photo of the project and set it up under YarnCraft’s projects so you could see it. It took about 1.5 balls each of two colors of Baby’s First, which is also in the description on Ravelry; click here to see it over the bathtub.
