It's July Already! Have You Started Working On Christmas Yet?

An interesting thought occurred to me this week as I was completing the design for my new X-Stitch Headband. (You can get the pattern here). It would make such a perfect little tuck-in Christmas gift for all my girlfriends, sister, daughter, and so forth. The whole thing took me under an hour to pop out, and of course a little headband is a perfect take-along project when you're going to be sitting outside enjoying a summer concert in the park, or just waiting in the doctor's office as I so often do! 


This is crocheted in two rows of X-stitch double crochet with a single crochet contrast border all around. I added a little crocheted pin for extra dazzle:) You can find the pattern for that on my Squidoo pattern index

Next week I will be featuring a pattern for a "Faux Knit" Purse. Patterns don't get much easier, and it's a lot of fun playing with colors! It features my "prong stitch single crochet." When worked in the round, Prong Stitch looks remarkably like knitting! Anyway I got a kick out of it, hopefully you all will too. Here's a sneak preview... 


Don't forget to comment below to be entered to win this month's blog giveaway! This month's prize will be one of my for-sale patterns at Craftsy.com along with a set of crocheted finished objects from me! 

Happy crocheting, everyone!
