A Handmade Christmas: Crochet

I don’t like early Christmas posts, but some of these projects take longer than others. I want people who like an idea shown here to be able to use it this Christmas. But, I promise, no one singing “Santa Baby…” I also promise nothing like those horrible slippers Great-Aunt Whoever used to make. The handmade gift suggestions I will be presenting over the next few Fridays, should be well-received.
