Where I live, it’s beginning to feel quite wintery, which makes me want to curl up in my house with cozy woolens. Ravelers all over seem to be having similar vibes, as there are quite a few projects for their homes being made! Here are some of my favorite recently completed ones:

three handmade projects: a brightly colored crocheted afghan draped on a couch with a green pillow, a red and green striped Christmas tree pillow with a fluffy yellow pom-pom topper, and a stack of striped handwoven towels on a deck railing with fall foliage in the background

I loved the happy colors and touches in OrangeShooze’s Persian Tile / Eastern Jewels Blanket, cherrybling’s Striped Christmas Tree Pillow, and GlaserNo5’s Letterzed Towels.

three handmade blankets with animals resting on them: a blue and grey blanket with an orange cat in the sun, a bright multi-colored mitred square blanket with a dog lying on it, and a textured crocheted blanket on the back of the couch, with a grey and white cat lounging.

These projects are obviously appreciated by the most discerning members of the family: knitsnpurrs’ Moody Blues, ahurley’s Hue shift afghan, and inkypink’s Spicier Life CAL.
