It’s that time of year when I want to try a decorating or gift idea for the Holiday Season. For this post I’m providing some links to craft and knitting projects that are fabulous for gift giving or to decorate your home this season.

Christmas Decorations

I’ll begin with a post on making pompoms I did awhile back; perfect for gift toppers.

Are You Looking For Some Color Inspiration?

The Color Collective

The Color Collective

Today, I’m going to share with you a link to a unique site  – The Color Collective. This blog is remarkably simple, with no text, but effective in putting together color schemes from images that are most often fashion related. If you are searching for timely color schemes for your creations or wardrobe ideas, I highly recommend checking out this site. It will truly inspire. And the bonus is you don’t have to read any text, but simply enjoy a visual treat.

A Yarn Bombing Surprise!

I was taking a much needed walk yesterday, and I came across some fabulous yarn bombing at the Royal Alberta Museum. The following are some images I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.

Happy Knitting!
