Who Would Bring Crochet Cookies to a Company Cookie Exchange?

Me, that’s who.

I had a great time at the annual cookie exchange with my coworkers. I was so excited that they loved my cookies. It means a lot when your hard work is appreciated. And, oh, all the glorious cookies! I’m blessed to work with such talented bakers.

That brings the Great Cookie Countdown to a close (until next year). Thanks to everyone for checking out my cookie patterns, crocheting cookies of your own, and sharing the patterns and even cookies with your friends. You all are the best.

Merry Christmas, everyone!

The Great Cookie Countdown to Christmas Begins!

Crochet Christmas Cookie PlatterEvery year my company holds a Christmas cookie exchange in December. I’ve  participated for several years, but last year I was so busy with the blog that I didn’t have time to do any baking. I even joked with one of my coworkers that I should crochet the cookies instead. So this year, that’s exactly what I’m doing.

I’ve designed 8 different crochet cookies: some of them are American favorites and some are popular all over the world. I’ll publish the patterns over the next few weeks, so you can make these cookies as well. They’ll look very festive on a platter or as ornaments on your tree. And I’ll be sure to let you know how my platter of crocheted cookies goes over at the company cookie exchange.

If you have a favorite cookie that you think I should try to re-create in yarn, let me know. I hope to make this a holiday tradition at the picnic and would love to try to include your cookie next year.
