The holidays can be such a stressful time. For me the stress starts to set in when there are 8 million sales and 400 things to knit. I feel the need to spend creeping in, slowly at first, then faster and faster as the days get shorter and the temperature drops. So how do you combat the holiday blahs? Well this winter’s Knitty certainly perked me up! The only problem is as a browse through it makes me want more yarn. But hardly a day goes by that I don’t think about buying yarn, so this hardly changes the state of things. However, I have decided to make instead of buy everyone’s Christmas presents this year. How are you doing the holidays differently this year?
