Some Of My Favrite Snowmen From Years Pass

This is a Tassel Snowman Ornament.  What I really like about this guy is how easy he is to make.  You just make a hollow snowman and then stuff the tassel in to give him a great wispy look.

Ahhh, Dance Of The Snow People.  I think I'm more in love with the idea that after everyone has gone to bed the all snow people made that wintry day dress up and go to a midnight ball.

Peppermint Snowman At Top A Peppermint Pillow.  He makes a great stand alone decoration.

But my all time favorite has to be these Snowman Faces.  They are so versatile, you'd never get bored playing with these guys!

Peppermint Purse & Scarf Free Crochet Pattern

I wanted to post something more in line with the holiday spirit.  What goes better with Christmas then Red & White & Peppermints?  How about this Peppermint Purse & Scarf set!

Both are made using worsted weight yarn.  You simply carry the unused yarn behind your stitches as you work them so dropping and picking up colors are a breeze.  For those who aren't familiar with the process here is a tutorial I made awhile back that should help illustrate the idea better.

I used a combination of both the yarns to make the fringe on the scarf and this big, chunky tassel at the bottom of the purse.  Feeling more in the holiday spirit yet?
