Christmas crochet

Crochet star garland   

Crochet star garland

I've finished my first garland already! Turns out I was a bit speedier than I remembered. Once I get going on these stars, I can whip up a fair few in an hour. I made it using this tutorial from the Royal Sisters, but I only did 2 rounds instead of 3. They are super simple and effective! Now to get going on a few more. I also want to have a go at the Christmas trees next. I don't think I can quite bring myself to take the garland down now, it cheers up the living room (and horrible brown fire blergh, I hate it) no end.

  6. I reckon you could get away with the garland all year round. It looks great!

    I like the fireplace, does that mean I have bad taste? :)

  12. They're so pretty, I don't blame you for not wanting to take them down. Maybe you should make a massive crochet feature to cover the fireplace? hehe. I'm using exactly the same crochet patterns! The trees are easy to do as well. I'm trying to do a couple a night whilst watching mindless tv like neighbours or big bang theory.
