While there’s still quite some time before the holiday season officially begins, it’ll be here before you know it. Don’t get caught scrambling to finish your knits at the last minute this year. Besides, it’s always nice to be able to sit back and relax with some stress-free knits once the craziness of holiday knitting is over.
