Crocheting through the Holidays – Update

It is not only Friday it is also forty days until Christmas. Relax, take a deep breath, we still have time to finish our Christmas projects. Remember our plan – to crochet so many rows a day to ensure that we finish our projects. ( All you have to worry about is today and to crochet the amount of rows needed to complete your projects in time. After all making a gift for someone should be a pleasurable experience and not stressful, nor forced to meet a dead line experience.


Since last weeks post my life has brought some unexpected events that has prevented be from being as productive as I would like. Still, I know I can use this weekend to get myself back on schedule. It is my desire to have my daughter’s Plaid Winter Afghan (pictured above) finished by the beginner of December. It is an easy pattern, consisting of the chain stitch (The Chain Stitch) and the double crochet (Double Crochet), which allows me to work the filet part quickly. It is my intention to post a picture of that part of the pattern finished by next Friday.


The doily (pictured above) that I started last Thursday is finished. Although this was a non planned project, I am so glad I decided to crochet it. I needed a doily for my end table for my living room and now I will have one in place in time for the holiday company. It was an easy pattern that I actually only worked on for two days, and I really like the color. I will be posting in more detail regarding the process of crocheting it next Monday.

Would love to hear how your projects are coming along. We all know that giving a homemade gift can be so rewarding not only for the recipient but for the giver. If you have not found time to start your projects yet remember that there is still time to crochet a gift or two before the Holidays.

Until next time, keep those hooks flying.


About crochetwithpassion

I have been certified through the Craft Yarn Council both in teaching and Instructor. I also have been teaching people to crochet for over fifteen years. This is what I will be doing through this blog. In the Crochet Master Class there are 18 projects. Some of the projects will be familiar to me such as Hairpin Lace; Tunisian Crochet; Filet Crochet; Double Ended Crochet; painted Crochet; Aran Crochet and Irish Crochet. However there are several in the book that are new and have peaked my interest and that includes the following: Woven Crochet; Tapestry Crochet; Entrelac Crochet; Fashion Crochet; Tassels; Bullion Stitch; Overlay Crochet; Bead Crochet; Bruges Crochet; Free-form crochet and Wire Crochet. Since Crocheting is a time consuming craft I will only be posting once a week. If you are like me and love to crochet but would really like to challenge yourself to go beyond what you are now doing, come along with me and move to the next level. Although the actual patterns will not be posted (copyright law) I will take you through each project and go through the process of each one. This is not a blog about free crochet patterns or selling crochet tools. What I would like to do is take you with me on the journey through this book as I learn and crochet each of 18 projects. I will attempt to crochet each project in the book, and in the process recording in detail my progress and the problems I encounter along the way and the process I went through to accomplish each project. I am hoping that you will not only learn from my experience but that it will inspire you to push yourself to the next phase in your crocheting skills. Until next time; keep those hooks flying.

    Great progress! I have been working on just enjoying the process as well! I am almost done with the last blanket I am sure I will have for the holiday. I may add one more, but I am not sure yet. I have also completed the 8 scarves for my cousin’s kids I wanted to make plus a scarf for my brother, and I have about 6 stocking ornaments done. I made a travel makeup case this week and liked it so much I will make more–but that is a nice and quick project. All in all, I am pleased with my progress!

  2. It sounds like you have used your time wisely, you are off to a start of a wonderful Christmas. It is so encouraging to hear about other people process. I love it when I crochet a project and liked it so much I then decide to crochet more of them. I have never seen the makeup case, would love to see a picture. Is there one on your blog.
