I am not going crazy and writing this post super early. 

It is 100 days until Christmas!

To say Christmas has not come even earlier this year is an understatement as I have been working on my Christmas schedule for the last couple of months so I its great to know that the countdown is on!

This year I have some great Christmas ideas and some great Challenges for you to participate in

Here is what is coming up on Sweet Little Pretties over the next 100 days

- Christmas Countdown with Sweet Little Pretties

Spring Yarn Club

I recently saw in my Facebook feed a Spring Yarn Club hosted by Jellywares - instantly I knew I needed to join not just to create some gorgeous pieces but to use some yarn that I would not normally use.

With knitting you gravitate to the same types of yarns and textures so I wanted to open my heart to some new products.

Month One is Noro which is a Japanese Wool - it is gorgeous colours in this wool instantly makes me happy! 

I can not wait to share my progress over the month with you and I am already excited to see what will come next month to create

Have you ever joined a craft club?
