A Free Printable Tag, to hug your yarny gifts



So, it's that time of year again! Lots of ends to weave in and plenty of handmade items to wrap. This year, I've decided to create this special tag, to add even a little more awesomeness to our handmade gifts. If you need to edit the back of the tags (to add special care instructions, for instance), simply edit the file. If you only need to print and wrap yummy wool, download the PDF file. Enjoy wrapping squishy, soft presents!

Super quick poncho (and another Drops pattern)

One Christmas project down. This particular one was easy-breazy. It's a cozy cape/poncho, in crochet, for Little A.'s great-grandmother. It's a Drops Garnstudio free pattern, but an easy one!
I used 5 skeins (for the XL/XXL size) of Ice Yarns' Bolivia Worsted, which I bought for $0.40 a skein! So total cost for project was $2. And the photo doesn't do the yarn any justice!

It's  a wonderful pattern, with great and quick results. Get it for free here.

Um projecto de Natal feito. Este foi especialmente fácil e sem espinhas. É uma capa/poncho confortável, em crochet para a bisavó da Little A. É um modelo gratuito da Drops, mas é fácil, juro. Usei 5 novelos (para o tamanho XL/XXL) de Bolivia Worsted, que comprei por 35 cêntimos o novelo. Portanto, o custo total do projecto foi menos de 2 euros. E a foto não faz justiça ao fio!

É um modelo agradável, com resultados bonitos e rápidos. Disponível, gratuitamente e em português, aqui.
