  1. Wow, these are super great and I want to thank you for the pattern. I used to machine knit for a design company decades ago and saved so many cones from their yarn. I didn’t know what I was going to do with them, but felt they were too good to throw away. Was just about ready to throw them with all my moves and becoming a senior citizen with severe arthritis all through my body. Thanks to Jesus, I can still crochet even though that’s about all the different crafting I can do nowadays. I know so many of my friends and family would love these for decorations that I can give to them as gifts. Overjoyed is how you made me feel this cold day. Got my very tired and old brain spinning a bit over the suggestion of using this pattern for other holidays. I can create and have been told I do good work, but to me the ones that take the time to make the patterns to share are the really creative ones. I’ve tried making a pattern for a craft store I worked at while in my 30’s and it was really hard work. When I would get to crocheting the piece, I’d forget to write it down and had to pull out or go back into the piece to see what I had done. Very frustrating to me and I didn’t enjoy it all, lol. Thanks for all the great creative things you put online for us crafters. This person for one, is very impressed you have such talent and willingness to share your designs with us. Have a very Blessed Christmas and Holiday season. K
