Christmas is a ways away but will probably be here in the blink of an eye nonetheless. As such, I'm already pondering future gifts and what I need to do to prepare for the holiday. Evaluating my stash for inspiration is obviously at the top of my list, closely followed by long hours spent on Ravelry and Pinterest. Then there will probably be some yarn buying, the start of the actually knitting and/or crocheting, and then the inevitable more yarn buying. Hopefully the end result will be some beautiful, thoughtful gifts that will be completed in time for Christmas (unlike last year where I wrapped my mom's table runner with it still on the needles and only 3/4 of the way done. But she had a really cool January gift, haha).
