Christmas is coming!

It that time of the year again!

Michele here to try and whisk you into the holiday spirit! If you’re a crafter you know it’s the time of year when you start planning your holiday project list.

This year I plan to make a Christmas afghan. I already have two, one my grandma made in the seventies, and the other came from my parent's cabin in Northern MI. I love those blankets. They have sentimental value because they are connected to someone or something in my past. I’d like to make something like that for my own children.

So, I need your help. Which throw do you like? I’ve posted a few patterns along with the link to the web site where you can find them if you’re interested. 

Please, vote in the comment section to help me out and don't forget to leave your e-mail address to be entered into our weekly drawing.

Peppermint Throw and Pillow   Here's choice number one. I love the bright contrast and fun peppermint candies! 
And here's the link to the pattern: patterns/peppermint-throw-and-pillow

Snowflakes & Ribbons Throw
Choice number two. Another pretty one!
Here this link: Snowflakes-ribbons-throw

And the last choice. I like this one because I learned to crochet granny squares when I was in elementary school. (a LONG time ago!)

All the above patterns are found on Red Heart Yarn's web site.

Thanks for your help! I can't wait to hear from you!
Happy crafting,


  1. They are all beautiful. I might crochet one myself this season, that is if I can get my books turned in on time.

    I like the 1st one best, I think.

    1. Thank you, I think they are pretty too. Hard choices. lol! I hope all goes well with your book deadline. :)

  2. Thanks for these great pattern links, Michele. The continuous granny square is the easiest. I know since I've done one but not in Christmas colors. But my favorite is the Peppermint. I had the pillow pattern but didn't think about a throw until now. Crocheting is so relaxing.

    1. I completely agree, Elaine. Crocheting is relaxing. If only I had more time to relax. :)
      I do like the peppermint best, but will probably make the continuous granny square. When it's large enough, I'll have a warm throw while I'm working on the blanket!

  3. I love the Peppermint throw, so pretty... plus it could be left out beyond Christmas, at least at my house!
