christmas lights or any lights

Dedri, from lookwhatimade, posted a wonderful idea to personalize your little lights guirlande for the holidays – or any occasion for that matter.

Check her Flower Christmas Lights pattern.  Make sure to use LED lights (which don’t heat up), and push the flower behind the fitting, so it doesn’t touch the bulb.  And it would be smart also to not leave the lights on unattended…

Be aware that this pattern requests orthodontic rubber bands… the 1/8″ heavy duty ones. Dedri offers a link in her explanations.

Lucas-the-Elf

I love making hats.

Following this newborn elf hat pattern from B. Hooked Crochet, I made one for my third-grand-son-soon-to-be-born: Lucas Georges.

I made the newborn version in a single color: ‘oatmeal #400’ from Lion Brand, using a 5.5 mm hook. It was quickly done … the technique is well explained on the video tutorial and it’s just a question of alternating DC and SC for 43 rows, starting from the bottom to the pompom.  As I was doing mine with a leftover of yarn, I reached 24 rows.
