Christmas Craft Inspiration Be Merry

There are signs of Christmas already, as I am sure you have noticed too wherever you are.

I admire and celebrate those of you who give handmade gifts and create handmade crafts to decorate your homes with merriness.

As a maker taking the time to create those handmade Christmas gifts is something you love to do.

There are plenty of Christmas Crafts to inspire you below.

On My Needles

I’ve often heard other knitters describe creating socks that only uses knit stitches as a mindless activity. I can see that it doesn’t take much concentration but for me, it truly is a mindful experience.

Toe Up Socks With a Difference knitted by J Morgan Pattern by Wendy Knits

I get into a rhythm and can focus solely on the knitting. It is good practice for me, to be with the moment and not let my mind become distracted.

I’d be interested in your thoughts on this.

I’m determined to use all the rest of the yarn, so it will be interesting to see how long they turn out.

Goody Goody! All Those Yarns…

Knit Picks Big Sale is full of bargains! Perfect for grabbing yarn for sweater weather.
