So, you guys may not know this about me but I actually don’t care too much about holidays. I don’t decorate and for the most part I can’t even get into exchanging gifts and baking! I love to bake and I actually love giving gifts, knowing someone will love them that is. But as I move farther and farther away from my family I just can’t get my “want to celebrate” up. Eh. But you know what I do like? Seasonal crochet items! Halloween/fall earringssnowflakes, and cupcakes. Well, I made some more:

Once you finish with weaving in all your ends, attach metal jump rings to the middle single crochet of row 8; attach french hooks to the jump rings. Then wet both earrings down with fabric stiffener and allow them to dry completely before you wear them.

Try out the pattern and let me know how it works for you. 😀

Also, just in case you were wonder, I have now added both the Meghan scarf and the Brittany scarf patterns to my website for $3.99.

And I’m working on writing up the pattern for the Amanda scarf,

if anyone would like to test it for me. 🙂
