Is it too soon for the "C" word?
Not if you are a crafter! We have to think about it extra early to get everything made in time for Christmas.
And certainly not if you are a Designer!!!! We have to get our seasonal patterns out in time for you Crafters to make them in time for Christmas.
Here is my 2013 Christmas offering - a Holly Wreath.
This Holly wreath is designed with the beginner in mind. It uses all dc (US_sc) with some shaping and short rows.
