The Mad-Crafter!!

The holidays are once again upon us. It is this wonderful time of year that Family comes together to celebrate each other and gorge themselves on tons of food, but let’s not forget the gifts. Along with the wonders of the fall and winter season are just as many horrible side-effects. Such as the couple of pounds added to our waistlines (No one is immune to it), and especially the “Mad-Crafter” syndrome. This is much like the Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland, except with lots more papers/scissors/yarns/fabrics and any other crafty supplies.

The Mad-Crafter is a state of mind in which a crafty guy or girl feels the need to Craft All The Things!! This state is most common around the end of year holidays.

As an admittedly Mad-Crafter, I have compiled a list of things which I wish to make for my closet family and friends. I think I should make it clear that, only one object per person would make my list around 30+ projects. . . not to mention the multitude of things I am dieing to whip up for myself. From how much time I have to craft and how long it takes me per item, I looks like this gifts won’t see the light of day until Christmas 2020.

Although I can’t share all of my secrets with you  (mostly because a lot of my readers are gift recipients). I  will let you in on a few gift’s on my to-do  list for the next holiday.

For my niece I am planing on crocheting up an adorable doll by Loops & Threads (which is the store brand for Michaels craft store) but I think I will change to colors so it is not strictly a Christmas toy. This is a free pattern at the Michaels Website.

Of course for my wonderful fiance I am still attempting the socks but I have come a great ways since first starting and I think I could actually make them before the end of the year (yeah right how am I fooling?).

P.S. Remember the sweaters worth of yarn I eluded to a few posts ago? Well its here and I am so excited to start on my first adult garment ( which of course will be for me, mostly because I would hate to mess up horribly an expect some else to have to wear a disastrous sweater Just because I want it).

11 skeins of beautiful green.  For this sweater pattern found at Knit Picks.

Wish me luck to keep my cool this month! What are your crafty plans for the holiday season?

Keep Calm and Crochet on!

    Love the green circular sweater – looks like a great pattern, and your yarn should suit it perfectly! =D
