In case you’re wondering when you should start crocheting for the holidays, follow my advice – start TODAY. I’ve all too often told myself, “Oh, I’ll start that Halloween costume as soon as October comes around.” Well, let me tell ya, it doesn’t happen. Birthdays come and go, plans are made, ideas for the ‘who, what, when, where’ for Christmas are tossed back and forth… life becomes soo exhausting that your coveted crochet time becomes obsolete!
Give yourself at least three months (any less and you’d be committing suicide!) prior to the holidays to create your crochet projects. Start by searching for your favorite (and make sure they’re practical so you don’t throw yourself under the bus) pattern. From there, give yourself a timeline. Guesstimate how long each project will take, and build from there. The key here, especially if you’re creating for gifts or selling, is to not overload yourself. Boy, oh boy do I know that feeling! Not good for you or your projects.
So, start crocheting for the holidays TODAY! Trust me, you’ll be saving yourself much time and frustration. Now, I better start on my Halloween projects! Definitely don’t want to put those off this year. 🙂
Happy crocheting, ya’ll!
