and Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, and Christmas will be upon us!

So....to get ready for the holidays, let's make something special for our home and family with our knit and crochet skills!

Are there trick-or-treaters in your home?
Make them a bag to carry all their candy!! Or make tiny toys to give out to those who knock on your door.

Expecting company for Thanksgiving?

Ladybug wanted me to "thank you" :muah: for all the smilies in your post. She was signing "more" and "thank you" pretty funny for a 19 month old. :yay:

To stay on topic -- I'm going to be knitting snowflakes (booklet I have at home) & am still searching for a pumpkin I like.

But I think that's what I'll make cuz it's for my tree...

You're very welcome! :heart: :hug: :heart:
I get most of my smilies and emoticons at "Best Smileys"
I'm glad Ladybug likes them! :)

For our knit-along, I'm planning on making a stocking for my grand-daughter. She doesn't have one yet.
