My second idea for Christmas, crochet wise, is to try and make some bunting. Again I think I will probably end up going with Lucy from Attic24's pattern as it seems simple enough and the bunting for Yarndale looked pretty effective.
To keep it looking Christmasssy I decided to use very specific colours, and a new type of yarn...
After having read about Rico creative cotton on various blogs I was really keen to try it out but not quite brave enough, or rich enough, to order enough to make a full blanket without knowing I would love it. So I thought choosing a selection of festive colours and making some bunting might be a good start amd would give me an idea how it was to work with.
Hopefully the colours alone will make it obviously Christmassy although I can't help thinking ITALY when I look at the pictures. :D I'll post an update when I've had a go and, hopefully, created a few triangles!
