I've got a lot of projects in progress, but my rate of completion has dramatically slowed with the start of full-time grad classes, part-time work, and a part-time internship. I did manage, however, to whip up a few sets of these lacy crocheted earrings for gifts.
This pattern comes from Linda Permann's book Crochet Adorned, and is also found in the November/December 2009 edition of Crochet Today. These earrings are super-easy and quick to make, especially if you're already comfortable with thread crochet. And if not, this is a great project to learn with. Quick (and crafty and beautiful) gratification! Definitely my new go-to gift project.
