If you sign up for my monthly Yarn Varmint newsletter, you will receive my free 'Giggles' E-Book which includes the pattern for the original Giggle monsters I designed. These little guys are approximately 4 inches tall when crafted using worsted weight yarn.
Make varmints in a variety of sizes and dress them in festive holiday hats to line up on the mantle or tuck under the tree! I would love to hear from you and see pics of your varmints.
So let's get crafty and have those holiday projects done early this year! And don't forget to include a pack of handmade yarn varmints in the mix. Just imagine the delighted giggles when the little ones see these cute little monsters!

Well, I didn't quite make my deadline on this blanket, but I did get it done in about 1 week. The caterpillar was kind of an afterthought. Without him it's just another baby blanket, don't you think? I also added a sweet scalloped edge to give an even softer look. Oh, and did I mention that this blanket Is super soft and cuddly? I think my friend will love giving it!

But if you're thinking of handmade gifts, then it's time to get serious about your gifting plans this year.
Because we live in a DIY culture these days, many of you will be looking for some simple, but awesome projects to make. By starting early you can avoid the last minute crochet marathons that we have all experienced at one time or another.
Rather, lets get our gifts completed early so we can truly enjoy the most important things about the holidays, family and friends!

Well, that's my friend. She isn't a yarn addict like I am and has no idea of what goes into a project, But she loves everything I make and gives me tons of encouragement.
Still the question teased my competitive edge. Could I make her a blanket in less than a week? I don't know, but I'm going to give it try! I think I may be able to. We'll see....
This is two days work so far. Let's see.......Four more days to finish it.
I did not design this pattern, but I love the bumpy softness of this design! And it is working up fairly quickly I think. You can find the free pattern here. .
