Crochet gifts

After being totally immersed in the crochet yarn bombing project over the last couple of months, for a change I decided to do … more crochet!  This time some gifts.

Firstly these wrist warmers:

I made a pair of these for my lovely friend Elisabeth, sadly Royal Mail have let me down & so far, over a week after I posted them, they’ve not yet turned up at her house!  Luckily I have proof of postage, so I can claim compensation, but I don’t suppose they’ll pay for the time they took me to make. I made them from a pattern over at Attic24, and they were so easy I made another pair for my daughter.  The gloves are just made from htr stitch and sewn together with a little pretty-ing up on the openings.  I made them with some cotton DK I had left over from another project (a little something I made for next months issue of Inside Crochet – are you excited to see what the project is?)

My cousin had a little baby boy a couple of weeks ago & so I decided that he needed a little pressie.  When I saw a pair of crochet high tops I knew I had to make some:

I found a pattern on Ravelry, and changed the colours.  They only took an evening each, and would have been a bit quicker but for the Great British Bake Off being on the tv the night I started, and as you surely know, you have to keep looking up to see what they are making.  These were made in a baby dk yarn, which hopefully will take lots of washing, and be lovely and snuggly on his feet.

I’m now starting to think about making some Christmas gifts, ideas anyone?
