Hand made gifts

With the economy so darned wonderful, I've been working really hard to find things that I can inexpensively make by hand to give as gifts. I have tried knitting in the past and discovered that I am HORRIBLE at it. I recently decided I needed to learn how to crochet. So.....for my family who all live up north where it is cold, I have started making scarves. I have asked them all what their favorite colors are and am making loads and loads of scarves. I've finished three of them. I'm really looking forward to doing them. My next scarf will be a hooded scarf. When I get a few completed, I will post pictures.

I have crocheted a few scarfs for family members myself.I even bought a loom kit back in the spring and did a few hats and skinny scarfs.It's a peaceful hobby too.

It is peaceful. I can do it watching football, crime dramas, or anything.

Hello, fellow crocheters! In past years I've made afghans, hats, scarves, and mittens as Christmas gifts for family members. No one else in the family does any sort of needlecraft, so they think I'm amazing. I've been kept busy this year making baby afghans for new parents in my office. There are only about 40 employees, but I must have given four or five afghans just this year. Another baby was born last week, and another is due in December!

There's a thread somewhere on the forum here about crochet. Glad to know there are a few other "happy hookers" on the forum. I've always enjoyed it more than knitting, I guess, because my mother and grandmothers crocheted, but didn't knit. And it IS peaceful.

I've had a hard time learning to knit for some reason.I've tried a few times,but My patience wears thin and the needles fly across the room..
Im currently working on 2 scarfs,just finished one for my MIL.

Yay for crochet! tee hee

I can do scarves, and therefore probably a blanket...but if it isnt like [____] or [_] (you know?) I'm not sure if I could, like shirts, or a hat..
