Ho, Ho, Ho Hilarious Knit Santa Hat

I refuse to be in the holiday mood quite yet, but this is by far the best holiday project I’ve seen to date. Someone in San Francisco please make one of these and drive by 680 Second Street!

Inspire me and get some free books!

I need help. I just took an amazing Crochet class at Article Pract in Oakland (which I highly recommend if you’re in the Bay Area) and I am determined to crochet some Christmas Gifts this year. I’ve started about five scarves and it looks like I’m having a little problem with my rows. I can knit up a symmetrical shape no problem, but it’s the counting in crochet that gets me. I’m looking for some inspiration, tips, and easy crocheting projects that I can hopefully master and whip out in time for Christmas giving. Who ever has the most inspiring ideas or pictures for me to share here will get a free copy of our Crochet To Go Deck and Cozy Crochet book. You can comment here or email me directly at: Can’t wait to hear from you!
