Halloween is this week and it’s time to start thinking about Christmas. Now, Christmas has got to be one of the best seasons for crocheting, whether it be decorations, ugly sweaters, tree ornaments or what have you. As a warm-up for larger projects, please have a look at the Santa Bag (basket?) above. This handy little tote will be great to use as a gift bag for small items, a stocking substitute/replacement or just a way to show your Christmas spirit. A link to free patterns is included under the photos.

For something a little more refined, here are some winter-themed potholders, that can give your kitchen that Christmas touch. Of course, they’re attractive enough that you can also use them as place settings on the table or sideboard.
