I find that the only time of the year that I knit and crochet are during the winter holidays. It's perfect for gift giving, but more importantly, it's perfect for keeping my fingers warm on cool nights. I find that doing any crafting, creating, and making is great for boosting moods and calming souls. The feeling of accomplishment and the process of creating itself is such a soothing activity. Also, it really sets a wonderful tone for the holiday season.
This year I learned how to do the trendy herringbone knit stitch via SteamyKitchen.com. Unfortunately, by the time I finished the scarf earlier this year, it was too warm to wear it. Instead, I tucked it into my scarf box in my closet and am waiting for a cooler day this winter to wear it!
Scarfs for me can really tie a look together. The look is of cozy and comfortable, as well as put together and well thought out. An instant pick me up on chilly days!
