A Crochet Christmas

Happy Hump Day my friends!  We just have to get through today and then it's only two more days till the weekend!  I am so excited for the weekend.  Although, I'm sure that comes as no surprise.  I have mentioned several times throughout this blog that I'm excited for every weekend. This weekend I don't have anything special planned really.  BUT!!!! I do have a new shipment of yarn arriving today!  Which means a glorious weekend of crocheting!  So, that is my big exciting life.  Live for the weekends and work to pay for yarn! HAHA!  

So, have any of you started your Christmas crocheting projects yet?  I have.  I've done pretty well so far too.  I've gotten four gifts done in the last two weeks.  Granted only one was my own pattern, but that doesn't matter--the rest still count! LOL So 4 down and about a million to go!!!!

A few weeks ago I bought this adorable kit from www.herrschners.com.  It is the Wendy 4-legged Friends Scarf Knit Yarn Kit.  I know what you're thinking, "Lori, this is a knit kit and I don't knit!"  True--But I don't knit either.  Well I can--if I have the book on how to do it sitting right next to me the whole time.  I'm and instant gratification type of person and knitting just doesn't give me the encouragement that I need when working on a project.  Anyway, that is why I wanted to share my scarf with all of you. That way if you don't know how to knit, you can still come up with an adorable monkey scarf for your little one!  Now on to the pattern!!!!
