After many weeks I am finally emerging from the crafty madness that was the holiday season. In 2007 I was remarkably, almost cloyingly, prepared for the holidays. By the end of November I was already halfway through my list. This year, not so much. The 2008 holiday season was full of tears and panic and half-completed gifts flung pettishly on the floor.

I became slightly addicted to knitting up bauble dressings while in the midst of a knitterly panic just before Christmas. Procrastination aside, these are quick and look delightful bedecking the halls and tree alike.
