Some Of My Favorite Things – For Gifting and For Keeping!

This is a list of some of my favorite things – that you can make or buy from the crafters who have made them. No, I’m not Oprah, so my Favorite Things don’t cost much!

If you’re like me and cringe at the thought of making two things that match, maybe you’ll crochet a single sock and give up on the pair. Here’s how you can use the single – or a single from a different set that maybe one of was eaten by the dryer.

Since socks or booties are required to keep one’s toes warm, here’s a pair that will keep you all snuggly.  These  feel luxurious on your feet.  I don’t think Sher Marchman Day makes them to sell anymore, but you can see a better picture of them here and get the free pattern to boot!  You can see Sher’s other items for sale and free patterns at her site.

You’re gonna crochet gifts, right?  So, why not crochet the gift tags?  These are so pretty.

You can buy them already made or come up with an idea to make your own.  I really like the vintage look of these.  Since I’m not sure I’ll have time to make a bunch for my gifting, well, hmmmmm.  Guess I’ll have to buy mine.  And, if you are one who sells your crochet at craft fairs, I can’t think of a more attractive or appropriate hang tag.  Just saying.

Now, we do a turn about.  You go looking online for some of your favorite crochet or crochet-related gift items.  Do some good research.  Then report back here for the next few Giveaways.  You’ll need those links to post for the Giveaway.

    Is it ok if we find our own pattern that we think would make a great gift, ha ha? Seriously, I love the little doily tags! And I’m just like you, I hate making two of anything!!
