Now that the holiday rush is behind us, I’m starting to think about what projects I’d like to make in this year. Planning projects is always fun, and while I may not stick to all of these ideas, it sure helps to have a starting point when I’m ready to buy yarn.

When this link was sent around the office, our chins hit our desks when we saw these pompom earrings were selling for $75! I knew there was a more affordable (and fun) way to add these cute accessories to everyone’s jewlery collection. These earrings work up in a flash and could be great gifts this holiday season. Grab your favorite colors of yarn and get crafting!
This velvety chenille yarn is ultra-comfy to wear and, since it is so thick, it is perfect for making quick blankets, pillows and fashion accessories. Sweet’s soft texture makes it a great option for arm knitting too!
The Unforgettable family has a new member with Unforgettable Waves! Beautiful colorways in a thick and thin version of your favorite fashion yarn will add texture and dimension to your knitting and crocheting. This 100% acrylic yarn is a great way to add a stylish touch to your stitching.
Strata is a jersey knit tube featuring fine fibers knitted into a tube around a soft core. Similar to a traditional T-shirt yarn but the tube structure means the yarn won’t fray along the edges, giving it great stitch definition. Extremely soft with just a little stretch and easy to use colors, it’s perfect for accessories, apparel and home décor.
