Podcast Episode 201: Crafting for the Holidays

This week, Jenny and Stacey chat about what is on every knitter and
crocheter’s mind this time of the year – holiday crafting! Both Jenny
and Stacey share a list of their favorite knit and crochet designs for
the holiday season. Find out what makes or breaks a project when it
comes to crafting for the holidays and what go-to books (and eBooks)
knitters and crocheters should be sure to check out this holiday season.
We really love the holiday crafting season and had so much fun sharing
our favorite projects and patterns. So consider yourself warned: in our
holiday crafting excitement, there might be excessive uses of the words
cute, pretty and adorable in addition to lots of “squeee”! And as very not-so-subtle hints for our family and friends, we also talk about what tops our very own wish lists.
