Join us in January for help with setting your 2017 gift giving goals!   We've all been there.  During the holiday season you swear that you're going to start your gift knitting in January next year so you're not rushed because you waited until the last minute AGAIN! And, like all the rest of us, in November you end up drastically slashing your original list and downloading every worsted (or better yet bulky) weight hat pattern you can find.  Well 2017 will be different!  Allow us to help you plan out your entire year of giving and help you stay on track with...
