I saw this display in a local wine shop window…
…and it got me thinking about gifts for next year. I didn’t gift any wine this year, but I think I will have to next year, just so I can work up a pattern for a wine cozy hat and scarf set. What a fun use for scrap yarn!
Back in the day, I used to get started on holiday gifts in August. I dread shopping, so visiting a store after “Black Friday” is out. I made a fair amount of handmade gifts, so I needed some lead time. In the past few years, life has gotten more hectic and the number of gifts I made declined.
I’d like to make more holiday gifts next year, so I hope to borrow some inspiration from many of the blogs I follow where people have been making holiday gifts in earnest since August.
