Holiday Crochet Today!

In the mail to my surprise was the new Crochet Today!



It was such a surprise to see a holiday mag, way before even Halloween. I have to admit, I got quite the chuckle. But hey, if you are going to crochet your gifts you better get started early.






I have a Convertible Shrug/ Shawl in the magazine. (Remember it from the sneak peek? )You'll notice in my pictures I call it the Flowering Shrawl. I was going to call it the Flowering Shrap, but that brought bad thoughts to my head. Here's the back of the wrap. Its an easy project. Its a bunch of granny squares connected into a rectangle. You could easily substitute any granny square and use my schematics to lay out your grannies, to make a similar shrug. This one uses Moda Dea Fashionista- quite soft and easy to work with.

Oh, and the mag also has some great articles by Amy. And other cute projects for everyone on your list this year.

I really love that pattern! I plan to make it in some of my slinky rayon fiber!
