Amazing Threads: Tis the Season & What a Season It Is~


 



Our cold weather combined with snow and the sweet sound of holiday music really means that the Gift Giving Holidays will soon be here.  For those of us that knit and crochet that means we are busy creating scrumptious gifts to share our passion with those we love.  I love knitting a new hat and/or mittens for my grandchildren and their parents.   Boots remain in fashion and I think I can still get a couple pairs of boot toppers done along with my other gift knitting. I envy those of you that started gift knitting this summer.  What was I thinking knitting for myself?  Indulgence knitting for "myself" will now have to wait until January.  Thank goodness I have a great queue of projects I want to knit.  



Check out FREE HOLIDAY KNITTING HOURS in the Class Section.
