Ahhh… I hear the sleigh bells ring-a-linging once again!
So many of my friends prepare early for the holiday season, I always feel somewhat behind. This year I promised myself I would start early and do it in the style I love… Crochet!! So I set off to find fun and fast projects that I could make and give as gifts and decorate my home with… All using ONLY one skein of yarn!! One skein crochet projects are easily attainable for me, especially when I feel like I am running out of time to get things done. By finding great crochet gift ideas and crochet home decor projects, I am able to quickly work through projects and I won’t feel rushed when the holidays rush in.
