And if start now but don’t get to everything on your list this year, you’ll be ahead of the game for next holiday season.

Of course, I have to start with a book by me. Christmas Crochet for Hearth, Home & Tree has tons of cute patterns. The stocking and mitten advent garland pictured on the cover is a big hit. There are a variety of stockings for the whole family, and Andee Graves’ little amigurumi birds are adorable at any time of the year.
Knit Christmas Stockings, edited by Gwen Steege, is a classic. If you prefer your stockings knit, this is the book for you.
Nordic designers Arne & Carlos bring their signature style to the knitting of Christmas ornaments with 55 Christmas Balls to Knit. I long to knit enough of these to cover a whole tree, but even just one or two will bring a bit of joy to your Christmas decor.
If crocheted thread is more your thing, check out Leisure Arts Big Book of Thread Ornaments. Ornament covers and snowflakes of all sorts will keep you busy showering your tree with seasonal beauty.
Jorid Linvik’s Big Book of Christmas Knits has it all – ornaments, stockings, mittens, and toys– and all with a Scandinavian flair. You could spend an entire year knitting projects from this book.
