The LoveCrafts team will openly admit that every one of us are yarnaholics. Which, is most definitely what brought you here, right? You’re so obsessed that you’re seeking yarn anonymous meetings, and you’ve started communicating to people through yarn puns.
Christmas happens to be the perfect time for yarnaholics because you’re given an excuse to buy more yarn (like you needed one, let’s be honest). Your dad needs a new scarf, so you simply have to buy that Jade Sapphire Mongolian Cashmere that you’ve been lusting over to knit him one, or your best friend would love some Christmas mittens, so of course you’ve just added some gorgeous hand-dyed Malabrigo Lace to your LoveKnitting shopping cart. You don’t need to hold back your love of all things yarny with us, in fact, we want you to embrace it and we’ll even reward you for it.

Isabel’s cable knit hat
A knitted treat is one of nicest things you could gift for Christmas. Be like Isabel and knit someone you love their Christmas gift this year. This lovely cable knit hat is Isabel’s Christmas gift to her dad, who is in need of the perfect winter hat.
Eve’s needle-felted Christmas fawns
If you love to decorate your home around the festive season, then why not create some needle-felted fawns like Eve has? These festive fawns are perfect for making your home feel like a winter woodland.
Amanda Berry’s knitted brussels sprout
Brussels sprouts are always an point of contention in any Christmas dinner. You either fiercely love them or you think they’re horrid. While the real thing might not be your bag, you can’t deny that this knitted brussels sprout from Amanda Berry is the most adorable novelty Christmas knit ever.
Pam’s giant panda
Pam’s niece is obsessed with pandas, so of course she simply had to knit a big panda teddy for her this Christmas!
Joanna’s Christmas carol singer
Joanna was inspired to knit this classic-looking carol singer as it reminded her favourite book, ‘A Christmas Carol’ by Charles Dickens. Share your Christmas book-inspired knits with us too for your chance to win!
