Whip up quick little projects to ring in the holidays!

The holidays are here! 
Many of us in the United States will be celebrating Thanksgiving this week, which in my mind is the official weekend to realize that Christmas is coming very soon (and to be thankful for wonderful things in my life and eat great food—it's a complex holiday). I've dreamed about making holiday decor, and rarely manage to get around to it—I did decorate a wreath form one year by wrapping leftover yarn around it. 
Our friend Vickie Howell just recently released this free pattern for an adorable plush pumpkin on her blog, knit with Berroco Macro™ in 6746 Puffin Beak. Knit on US size 17 needles, you only need about 60 yards of Macro to make one pumpkin. And don't worry—you still have time to knit one as your table centerpiece! For you crocheters, Vickie also has a crochet version and the link is at the bottom of blog post for the knitted pumpkin. 
We've got some adorable little free patterns that we've released around the holidays in the past, like this collection of free birdie patterns! How cute would they be as holiday ornaments, or little home decor accents?
If you want some more wintery options, we've got free snowflake knitting patterns as well as free crochet snowflake patterns. How lovely would it be to make up a few of these and create a winter bunting! Please note, the original yarns for the knit snowflakes are no longer available, but you could use Berroco Ultra® Wool, Berroco Bento®, Berroco Ginkgo®, or any other worsted weight yarn. The crochet patterns use Berroco Mykonos® to get that gorgeous shine!
And of course, we have many years' worth of Minutia patterns! Dozens of tiny patterns (mostly sweaters with some accessories thrown in) to knit or crochet as gift tags, ornaments, and more! This year's minutia collection will be available later this season, but we have plenty of options available right now if you want to get started.

Will you be making any gifts this year?

Happy knitting,
