I crocheted this black purse with 1 strand of Bernat Berella 4 and 1 strand of a boucle yarn (can't remember which one). I used my favorite L hook. The plastic canvas bottom liner still has to be covered with fabric and glued in - I'll probably do that today.

I crocheted these little ornaments last night. The pattern for the candy cane is listed a few posts down and the little wreath pattern is my own. It's very simple.
10 yds. size 10 thread
size 1 steel crochet hook - (I crochet tight - you may need to adjust the hook size to your preference)
1" plastic ring
Rnd 1: sc around ring to cover completely. Join with a sl st to first sc.
Rnd 2: ch 3, dc in same sc. 2 dc in each sc around. Join with a sl st to top of ch 3.
Rnd 3: ch 1, sc in same st. *Ch 2, skip next dc, sc in next dc. Repeat from * around. Ch 2, join with sl st to first sc. (You may or may not end up with an extra sc - it doesn't matter - you won't be able to tell - just skip it and join)
Attach a hanging thread and decorate as you like.

I went to the Dollar Tree yesterday and bought a pack of beaded candy canes and crocheted these cuties last night. Very quick and easy but a little tricky to hold onto at first. I'm giving the red one to Phyllis and the variegated green one to Juli. I got the pattern here:

Finished this scarf for myself last night. I used Bernat Super Stripe - the color is called B & Sea (makes no sense to me either) - and I used a J hook. The pattern I got from a friend. It's similar to the "One Skein Scarf" pattern in the "Stitch 'n Bitch" book but it's bigger, so it takes a little more than one skein.

I bought this little Christmas tree from the Dollar Tree and took it to work. I have no tiny ornaments for it so it sat for a couple days plain. Then I remembered all the little silver-ish washers that I would see on the shop floor and started picking them up (I was told the washers have something to do with the oil changes). I colored the washers with Sharpee markers and placed them on the branches of the tree. Looks kind of cute and fits in perfectly in a car shop.

A friend of mine makes little cupcake ornaments so I decided to try. Her's is much cuter than mine - maybe more sprinkles and a cherry on top would be good. I got the pattern here:
