Christmas… it comes. It's everywhere, the shops, the telly, the internet - there's no getting away from it. The West End, here in London, is lit up and sssppparkling, and soon we'll be seeing the first wave of decorations and chrismas trees appearing in the streets of our towns.
Now I do like to see a nice wreath. They're popular in my local area of little Victorian townhouses. There are all kinds - small and discreet, real foliage, tinsel, and some seriously ostentatious wreaths in my 'hood. I love it. My old urban pad in the sky was way too modern, but now in my new 'old' house I make sure I have a wreath on my little front door.
Of course. I had to have a yarn one, didn't I. Nothing quite so simple for yours truly - something a lttle bit different. Looks like your average wreath...but when you look closer.

Fancy a making yarn wreath? It's really not as complicated as it looks.
