I only did a little bit of gift crafting this past December and it was mostly crochet. I had picked some Red Heart Scrubby up on sale from Joanns for some kitchen cloths. I was pretty happy with what came out!
No plan, no pattern I just chained a whole bunch and worked the cloth in half double crochet. I crocheted until I used half the skein of yarn and cast of. Then I would make a matching one with the last half of the skein.
I gifted these to my coworkers as a little post Christmas pick me up. It felt good to share a little cheer with people I see everyday!
