It's the Most Crafty Time of the Year!
Crafting for the holidays is supposed to be fun — but so often our yarn balls turn into stress balls as we try to meet deadlines and get everything done. With a little bit of planning, however, you can keep yourself happily making as the holidays approach. Sounds magical, right?

But if you haven't started thinking about Christmas gifts, fear not. Grab your Santa cap (and maybe some caffeine), and read on. We're here to help.
