Every year from October through December, I am much more busy than the rest of the year. Long ago, when school had started back up, I was busy reacclimating myself to the rigors of a schedule, homework, and extra-curricular activities (hello, fellow band kids!). As I got older, the end of the year became a time when I was busy at my retail job, where the Christmas rush was in full swing.
Have you ever gone shopping early on Black Friday? And did you see dozens of frazzled employees trying to keep up with a swarm of (usually grumpy) customers? I used to be one of those unfortunate employees. Yep, there I was behind a cash register at 4am, or running to “the back” to make sure a sale item was actually out of stock. Whew. I don’t miss that at all!
Thankfully now my busy season is full of crochet. Of course I have to say that I prefer this to anything that retail management had to throw at me!
Whether I’m whipping up Holiday themed goodies, gifts for my family, or gifts for YOUR family – I love the range of projects I complete around the holidays. My favorite this year was the Indoor Snowball Kit, which was a big hit over at my Etsy shop.
Is this your busiest time of year, too? How to you spend your holiday season? What’s your favorite holiday crochet project?
