With the Holidays swiftly approaching, it’s home sprucing time mixed with a dash of last-minute gift needs. This cuuuuuute hand-made garland will serve you up as the blue-ribbon gift-giver. Learn several different crochet designs that can be strung together for a nifty decorative piece. Or the individual pieces can be used to add a little special touch to cookie tins, white elephant games and/or holiday cards. This is also a great way to use up those little extra bits of yarn from the big holiday projects you’ve been working on. Our Crochet Queen Jo Emanuelson will teach this class Tuesday, 10 am to 12 pm, Nov. 6.
