FM 12/1/08 - a day late and a dollar short;)

I hope last week was, ahh, not as exciting as it was at my house. I had a grease fire in my oven on Thanksgiving. Nobody was hurt except for the rolls I had in the oven and the cookie sheets - and possibly my oven :( Seriously, no one was hurt, but that's why it's always good to keep a box of baking soda by the oven. It's the best thing I found to smother grease fires.

Onward and upward:
Hanukkah is (I think) December 22 this year. You might have a chance to make a afghan from
crochet hexagonal Star of David motifs:

Here's a neat little crocheted icicle

Not everybody can be at New York for the lighting of the Rockefeller Center tree - but you can crochet one:

Or how about something completely different, a crocheted snow globe?

Looking to make a gift of a book extra special - how about a book stocking?

Here's a scarf pattern from Caron's "12 Days of Christmas" collection

This is so cute - but I have no little kids to make it for - here's a crocheted snowman bib

For those of you who are already tired of winter, here are some spring bracelets

Still looking for a poncho to make - check out Purple Kitty for their poncho patterns

crochet candy cane from Planet June

Want to try a different slipper to make - how about these Mary Jane slippers

As usual, nobody is sending me boses of yarn or patterns to list these freebies. I'd like to lie to you and say I wouldn't take it, but come on - offering me yarn is like offering a chocoholic a Hershey bar....

Thanks for the links! I have been crocheting furiously ornaments for my tree! Only 42 more to go but luckily they only take 20 minutes to make.
