Another Christmas Gift Down!

Another Christmas Gift down. Yipee!

This is for my dad. My mom not-so-subtly hinted that he'd like a scarf in brown and tan, so here we are. The scarf is just ch. 203, dc in each dc across, ch. 3, turn, dc across for about 9 rows. The hat is the Easy Beanie pattern by CroJulee. Its true to the name...easy and quick.

I did have a mini heart attack as I was adding the fringe. The brown was running out and I didn't think I'd have enough to make it look even. Luckily, there was just enough...literally just enough. I'd say there was only about 2 inches left over. Disaster barely averted.



He'll be getting this along with a Heineken keg. Yep, a keg. My mom is getting him one of the beer keg cooler devices, so my sister and I thought kegs would be good accompanying gifts.

No worries, dear old dad doesn't read my blog. I guess my adventures in crafting aren't up his alley. LOL

Only 99 projects to finish in time, 99 projects to finish...if one of those projects should happen to frog, 98 projects to finish in time! I might be slightly delirious with Christmas project stress.

Cute (er, nice - men usually don't like anything they wear to be called cute, ha, ha!) hat and scarf! I've made a total of one crocheted Christmas project this year. Yes, I'm being lazy!
