    My favorite thing to crochet for Christmas gifts is fingerless gloves with matching scarves and hats. My grandchildren love it when they get something that’s current fashion but made just to suit their tastes. This year, each one is getting their own stocking, so this contest was a great inspiration. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I have been crocheting everything from dish clothes to afghans to pillows and ornaments. My favorite so far this year is the purse. hat and scarf I did for my granddaughter and the fish pillows I did for my grandsons.

    Just retired so everyone is getting something crocheted. I have been making team color scarves and hats, sweaters, and throws. The stockings would be a darling find for each of my grandchildren.

    I like quick things for holiday decorations; little trees to hang or tie on to gifts, mitten ornaments, tiny hats,.
