And off they go...

Red & White... that was the theme of a Xmas hand-made swap...  
Scratched my head for a bit, put the thinking cap on...
This is what I came up with, a White Crochet Garland

and a large Christmas Coaster, perfect for popping a bowl of lollies on.

Whatchya think, are they ok?
But I had a dilemma, however do you wrap a garland!!
Now... are you the lucky recipient?  Maybe, maybe not... only time will tell!

Did you join the in The Haby Goddess Kris Kringle Swap this year?


  1. Ooooh love! Someone is going to be absolutely chuffed.

  2. I think, Totally AWESOME!! Someone is going to love them.

  3. Ow wow, I love your Kringle! Would you consider selling the pattern? I am new to crochet and am mad about Christmas and this would be a dream for me to work on! Also, what kind of yarn did you use? It looks like cotton! Well done, it's truly awesome! Am so jealous of your skills! Ike x

  4. Awww, shucks!!! Thanks Sweetie!
    The pattern isn't mine, the coaster is from a book called Crochet Stitch Motifs.. You can see a pic of the book on my right hand column of my blog,(it's the cream coloured book with a blue ball of yarn on it). If you clink the book it takes you to an online store where I purchased my book.
    And the garland is the first two rows of the coaster, strung together on a chain!
    The yarn is 50%cotton & 50% acrylic - so you get the softness of the cotton & the durability of the acrylic. I think the brand is one from a department store, called Cotone.

    Cheers, Rie!
