Thanksgiving Chill Zone

I am so excited for the Thanksgiving holiday! I get 4 glorious days off, and I plan to knit as much as I possibly can during that time. You know, when I’m not eating or shopping or decorating for Christmas. I have SO MANY Christmas gifts to knit that I’m going to make sure I spend some serious time with my needles, surrounded by my family, making pretty things. If you haven’t already planned something crafty to do over the long holiday weekend, let us help you! We’ve put together a weekend’s worth of knit and crochet projects, must-watch movies to get you in the holiday spirit, and the perfect snacks and drinks to enjoy. Join us in the Knit Picks Thanksgiving Chill Zone!
