  1. The thing I like most of all during the month of December, is the “holiday spirit” all around us. Complete strangers are smiling, kids are of course, very happy, thus an all-around “good feeling in the air”.

  2. Thanks for the great giveaway. I love the religious side of December – so many beautiful traditions.

    • Hi, my favorite thing about christmas time is the spirirt. Getting to see family and make trests. Also making something for your loved ones and getring to see the joy it brings them

  3. My favorite thing about December is how clean the air smells. You take a step outside, and yes, it can be really cold, but when you stop to take a deep breath, the air feels so clean and pure as it pours into your lungs. It’s refreshing.

  4. Christmas…everything Christmas is my favorite….family, cookies, shopping, gift giving (and yes getting’s fun too)…christmas lights, hot choc., tree trimming….cartoons, movies….everything….except snow (other than the 3 days surround christmas that is)

  5. My favorite thing about December is spending time with my family. With my own children and family I don’t get to see more than once or twice a year.
    Have a very Merry Christmas 🙂

  6. I love the lights and atmosphere of December. Everyone seems so happy:-)

  7. I love December because it was my Mom’s favorite time of the year… a time the family would be together and share hope for peace, love, and joy in the new year to come.

  8. My favorite thing about December is my sons birthday. He made me a mom when I thought I never would be, and surprises me every day.

  9. Love being with family, Christmas carols and of course all the twinkling lights on the tree!

  10. Christmas doesn’t officially start at our house until December 1, so I can’t wait to pull out everything Christmas! I especially love the music.

  11. My favorite thing about December is family! People make more of an effort to be together around Christmas. I love the spirit of giving, every year we try to do something special for a family in need. Usually playing secret Santa 🙂

  12. It would be hard to just pick ten patterns. I love the friends and family gatherings in December.

  17. Favourite thing about December is the Christmas feel! The smiles, decorations, FAMILY time! This month has a different feel, wish it carried over to every month!

  18. I love the cooler weather that comes with December because I can breathe better and therefore do more. Hot cocoa in front of a warm fire, so cozy. Heating the house up with fresh baked goods and full home cooked meals. Crocheting big blankets means not sweating to death under it but snuggling up instead. The kids get out of school for two weeks. I know I’m in the minority, but I LOVE being with my son all day. The possibility of snow! Even a few flurries and we’re dancing around in it. Come on December, like Spongebob, I’m ready, I’m ready. lol

  19. My favorite thing about December is celebrating the birth of the One who loves us most, Jesus!

  21. Hi 🙂
    I LOVE December! Summer is my favorite season but December is my favorite month.
    I love the joy my kids find in the days and weeks leading up to Christmas and our traditions. Things like advent chocolate calendars, ginger bread houses, cookie decorating with aunties and cousins, and making our annual handmade Christmas ornaments!
    I’m super excited this year as I’ve added one more idea. I’m wrapping 25 books (some new, some old, some from the library and some borrowed) and every night we’ll unwrap one, cuddle up, and read it together 😀 so excited about this idea. I heard about it on fb.
    Anyway. Obviously I I live more than one thing about December 🙂
    Hope you’re feeling settled and are doing well and all is great with your wee one.

  35. Watching my kids fall in love with the holiday, and the season of giving. It is amazing!

  36. Thank you for the giveaway!

  37. December is for focusing on creating a warm inviting home and preparing for family, the sharing of food and happy memories. I also get the urge to be more creative during December with my crafting. It sometimes carries over into January and shortens the winter of shorter days and dark afternoons

  38. The thing I love most about Christmas is that people open their hearts to give. And even if they are only able to give a smile, a kind word, a listening ear or a gentle hug that will mean more to some people than we could possibly know. I wish that people wound have the Spirit of Christmas and giving every single day of the year.
    And whoever said that picking ten patterns would be hard is totally right! You have created beautiful things for our little ones!

  39. My favorite thing about Christmas is slowing everything about the hussle and bussle of life down and just taking time to enjoy the company of family and friends. Love the smell of a freshly cut Christmas tree in house. Watching the joy on my kids faces while they open their presents!!!

  40. Spending time with family

  41. Love your patterns!

  42. My favorite thing about December is making Christmas cookies with my great-grandmothers cookie cutters.

  43. My favorite things about December would be: the weather! I love the cold and snow. I love to bake during this time of year. There really are too many things to list them all!

  44. My favourite thing about December is going downtown and seeing all the beautiful christmas decorations and lights.

  45. I really enjoy the time with family. We live in different cities so when we get together in December, with the holiday spirit, it’s really special.

  46. OH MY!!! I’m not sure I could leave just ONE comment about what I love about December. There are so many I could probably give several on each day for the next 25 days!!! I think what I like the most is the chance to make special things for all the people I love and special things for people just to put a smile on their face and love in their heart for the holidays. My mom was a crafter and also shared her love of making things with people she didn’t even know too. Isn’t that what this time of year is all about … LOVE!!! MERRY CHRISTMAS AND GOD BLESS!!!

  47. My birthday! Lol
    That, and as of 2 years ago, my son’s birthday. Being that he was the result of some “hard work” with fertility meds, I love celebrating his birth. Looking forward to his 2nd birthday party next weekend.

  48. My favorite part of December are the gentle snowfalls where I can sit by the fireplace, watch it snow, see deer roaming thru my backyard, knitting or crocheting with my java on the sidetable comtemplating how fortunate I am and how much I look forward to Jesus’ Birthday!!! Christmas Mass is so beautifully orchestrated in all respects!!!

  49. I love many things about the holidays, but my two favorite are decorations and music!

  50. The thing that I like most about December is spending lots of time with my family and, since I’ve learned to crochet, finishing up as many gifts as I can for them.

  55. So glad to hear that your little ‘blip’ has stayed put and you got to hear the heartbeat.
    Thing I like most about December would be the decorations (love Christmas decorations) and the extra excuse to make and eat yummy food.

  56. My favorite part of winter in Florida is I can sit on my patio 24/7 & have my cup of coffee & create my patterns. We also have a of song birds in the trees that just sound so beautiful. The only thing I miss from up North is the Fall when the leaves change colors.

  57. so many things to like about December…being in Florida I like the cooler weather, enjoying getting together with my family, and I love being able to look ahead at the new year and be excited about making new traditions

  58. December is a magical month. It transforms people and their outlook on life. It brings out the inner child in all of us. Snow angels, snowballs, snowman and brings people and families closer together to nest. Looks I said, December is magical. .just wish it would last longer.

  59. My favorite thing about December now is that I get to watch my son have his first Christmas 🙂

  60. I like December because I get to celebrate it 3 days after Christmas for my birthday. While I never got many presents while I was a kid since it was so close to Christmas, I like to treat myself now that I’m older. I usually make a small dessert and that’s my treat.

  67. You are very gifted Melody. I always like to see the patterns you create.

  68. December is a moth full of promises…family time…warm crocheted hats and the abundance of God’s love…thankfulness and great food…time spent with grand babies and so, so, much more.

  69. My favorite thing about December… Hmm. After losing my grandmother about 3 years ago, I was not enjoying anything about this time of year, which is sad because it was always hers and my favorite. This year my opinion has changed though. I have realized that it is this exact time of year that I am closest to her. Our family comes around, our Christmas things are out, her spirit is all over my home. Though I still miss her terribly. December is when I feel she is with me the most.

  73. My favourite thing about December is that its SUMMER time here in New Zealand and our Christmas Tree goes up today after school today (its the 1st of Dec here). December means only 2 weeks left of school and then I have my 2 youngest home for 6 weeks of holidays, which is a favourite and not as 6 weeks is too long and they get bored quickly lol. Its means beautiful flowers, gorgeous scents, bee’s and fresh vege and strawberries from our garden 🙂 I Love December

  74. There is so much about December that is wonderful. Cooler weather in Florida, family all around me during this special time of the year and celebrating Jesus birthday. Taking the time to remember all His great blessings to me and my family!

  75. I love seeing all the lights and decorations. I also love listening to Christmas carols and watching all of the Christmas movies even though I’ve seen them a hundred times.

  76. I love holiday baking and all of the Christmas music!

  77. One of the things I love most about December is that because of the way the holidays land (Christmas and New Years), my husband takes a few vacation days and with the holidays off, weekends off, and his vacation days, he ends up getting 12-13 days off work 🙂 It is so nice to have him home with us!

  78. The best thing about December…..my birthday on the first and the spirit of giving we feel all month, right into the new year!

  79. What I love most about December is the celebration of Jesus’ birth.

  80. The one thing I love most about December is spending the merriment of bringing families together… Irregardless of what’s happened during the rest of the year, it’s the month that every arguement or feud is put aside… As one poster said, it magical!

  81. My favorite thing about December is Christmas plus my first born was born in December. I remember when she was younger she used to ask me if she’s going to get only one present since her birthday is so close to Christmas. 🙂 Thank you for this awesome giveaway.

Watching him smile big when he sees everyone’s Christmas lights is the cutest. I also love getting to spend time with family as well. My birthday is in December, so the month is extra special to me.

  84. I love the excitement of anticipation.

  85. My favourite part of December-there are sooooo many things, lol!! I love the spirit of the holidays-I am old school and say Merry Christmas, have a nativity, etc. I love making things for ppl. I love the baking and the tree decorating! I love that our whole family gets together for great meals and great conversation!

  86. Love your designs and well written instructions. Thanks for a chance to win some more.

  87. My favorite part of December is staying inside by the warm fire, watching White Christmas. It’s so fun to watch movies and crochet at the same time!

  88. I love December because we are back home in Florida for the winter. We love being where there is warm weather & no snow. We also like seeing Christmas decorations down here.

  89. The best things about December is Christmas Day with my family its a time when everyone makes the effort to get together, our 2 granddaughters squeals of delight upon receiving there most wished for gifts. Warm thoughts of my dear mum who battled cancer and would not give in until Christmas day was over and finally this year the end of December marks the begining of a new year and the birth of a new grandchild. Let the knitting begin!

  90. So good to hear you’re doing well. My favorite thing about December is watching my grandkids open their Christmas presents. 🙂

  91. The smells of baking goodies, all 7 of my grandkids laughing and family togetherness. And don’t forget the REAL reason for Christmas, JESUS.

  97. I love Christmas and look forever to it each year. just like a child. 🙂

    we will be decorating tomorrow evening…. and I can’t wait.

  98. My favourite thing about December is the BEACH DAYS 😀 It’s Summer in my little corner of the world, so it’s time for picnics, salads, ice cream and as many days relaxing on the beach as possible. We have the perfect little set up for this year too 🙂

  99. You are so lucky to have another little one to wear your wonderful creations! My favorite thing about December is Christmas lights!

  104. The thing about December I like most is spending time with family. I love your patterns too.

  105. Family. That’s my favorite thing. Family getting together. When I stand back and listen to the 10 conversations going on at the same time, all the laughter – that is what December and Christmas is to me. The rest is just the packaging.

  106. Love your patterns! My favorite thing about December is our tradition of watching all our favorite holiday movies by the lights of the Christmas tree like It’s A Wonderful Life, White Christmas, Christmas in Connecticut,Rudolph the red nose Reindeer, Charlie Brown Christmas, Christmas with the Kranks, The Santa Clause, and The Preacher’s Wife with my guys. With no snow in FL, we’ll add some chill in the air by turning on the AC. Being together, be near or far, even if only by this tradition: priceless! Have a blessed Christmas.

  107. Congratulations first and most important! I used to LOVE December and still do for all the little kids happy and smiling! Two years ago we had a tragedy in our family! Our family is all healing still! I have 1 son that is still somewhat young my other 3 sons are older!We still try to surprise all of them with some special gift! I love the weather this time of year! I LOVE the patterns you create! Stay safe and well! Manda

  108. What I love the most about December is seeing the snowflakes fall on a dark night from my warm living room couch while I knit or crochet something that I’m giving to one of my loved ones for Christmas. I love the snow but I love to stay warm. What better way to do that than make something out of yarn! 🙂

  109. My favorite thing about December is watching all the young (and young at heart) with their wide eyed excitement in anticipation of the holiday.

  110. When we lived in colder places, I always loved the snow in December! This year, though, my favorite thing is being able to spend time with my new baby boy, who will be 5 months old!

  111. The hat patterns you have are so adorable it just makes you say AHHHH. I want to make them all. Keep up the great work.

  112. I love getting back into knitting. I normally don’t knit except during the cooler weather months. 🙂

  113. Wow, this giveaway, like all of your others, is awesome. It is really hard for me to pin down just one thing that is my favorite about December, because there are so many wonderful things about this month. There’s the lights, and the music, and the food, and family, and my birthday, it’s also the month my husband proposed to me, but I think most of all is celebrating the birth of my Lord, I am just so humbled and thankful that He came to earth.

  114. Christmas time!

  115. the music, the excitement of the young kids, the cookies, just about all of it.

  116. What a wonderful gift you are sharing with us, and the joyous news of a new life…..it must be Christmas.I love the sharing and giving that this time of year brings .
    Blessings to you and your little family <3

  117. I have two things that I love about December even more than the holidays… Two of my children’s birthdays are in December. My oldest will be 17 on the 15th and my youngest will be 5 on the 8th.

  118. December means that my favorite time of year is almost here. I live for Christmas! Love having my kids and grand children around having fun, playing games and just being together is more important the gifts.

    P.S. Congrats on your new addition.

  119. The spirit and decor of the season

  120. Christmas to me is all about family, watching the kids on Christmas mornings excited because Santa has come. this year even though it will be a hard one the first with out my mum, we are making the best of it anyway my mum would want that Christmas day was her favourite day of the year 🙂

    ps hope you have a happy and healthy 9 months with a supper cute bundle to show us all
    Take care 🙂

  121. Oh December is a great month for me because it’s the month I was born lol I Love to see others happy during the Christmas time before myself so I’m always donating and my oldest and I make hats and homeless bags of personal items for people we see in our community ❤️

  122. enjoying christmas with my nephew and niece, playing games and waiting for santa.

  123. I think the best part of December, other than family, of course, is how nice everyone is. I mean more than the rest of the year. I wish I could explain what I mean better than that, but I can’t. It’s just a much nicer time of year! 🙂

  124. I love the magic that children feel in December – it’s contagious!

  125. For me, I like what December offers to each of us…….. opportunities to do good and help others and stitch with love for others. People get very caught up in the shopping and the sales and the bargains and the parties. That is not what December means to me at all. It is about making baby creations for the newborns in the hospital, making Fashion Chemo Caps for the local cancer center where my husband was a patient back in 2008, and making gifts for my relatives and family. It is about the caring and the giving that we can do that makes December filled with golden opportunities to turn yarn into much much more. Many of my relatives are in their 70’s and 80’s now. SO I know that time is precious and life is fragile. I would rather spend December doing good and bringing joy to others. WHen you give from your heart, you discover that the joy you give comes right back to your own heart. Priceless! So hopefully you will make the same choices as I do to give from your own heart and put the magic of December and CHristmas right into the world around us. Be a CHristmas angel and spread your love around us. Just like the CHristmas tree lights that shine in the night, love shines brightly when it comes from your heart to those who need love and comfort during this December of 2014. Happy holidays.

  126. The thing I love most about December is the magical twinkle in the eyes of a child as they dream about Santa coming!! Its truly something incredible to witness!

  127. My favorite thing about December is making cookies and playing with my grandkids. Along with that, I like that it gets dark earlier, and it’s colder, so I want even more to stay inside with my needlework, and a cup of tea!

  128. I love December because I love the anticipation in the air!! The excuse to cover everything in Christmas lights isn’t half bad either 😀

  129. Celebrating of the birth of our Savior!

  130. I love many things about December. First Jesus’ birth and the hope/joy that fills this time of year. Looking for something special to put under the tree makes me giddy. It’s also fun to wear/ see my loved ones wear my knitted creations.

  131. I will be praying for your littlest little! They are all precious to us from the first day they exist and many days spent dreaming of them. May you be abundantly blessed this Christmas!

  132. I love Christmas lights, and berry salad we only ever make it for Christmas, also now that my wee daughter has joined in its amazing watching her on Christmas morning 🙂

  133. Now that my children are grown and have moved away,the very best feeling at Christmas is when they are home again for a visit. When I go to sleep at night it is such a wonderful feeling that they are safe and sound asleep under one roof and just for a minute, it is reminiscent of a time when they were young at Christmastime….such good memories!

  134. I love increasing my christmas decoration collection

  135. What an awesome idea 🙂

  136. I love the family and friends get-togethers, Christ’s birthday, music, decorating, and staying cozy knitting and crocheting!

  143. LOve the joy in the air!

  149. Thank you for the contest! My favorite thing about December and the holidays is the joy and excitement from my kids. they’ve already made Christmas lists, been asking about Floppy our elf, and have been watching Christmas movies!

  150. December is a triple header in my family! First is our wedding anniversary.. the next (day) is my hubby’s bday (don’t know WHAT I was thinking when I picked the day before as our special day)… and acouple days later is Christmas. 🙂 December is special for family time and celebrations of course.

  151. I enjoy a new fallen snow and Christmas day with all the grandchildren all around the Christmas Tree.

  152. I love December on a crisp morning with fresh snow on the ground and trees. Even more on a sunny day with a cup of coffee in my hand.

  153. My favorite thing about December is how things change because of Christmas. Everyone is more cheerful, loving, accepting, giving, etc. There is a different feeling in the air, different than any other month. I love how it changes kids too. There eyes full of wonder, surprise, excitement, and joy. I could go on and on about the differences I see just in December but to sum it all up, the thing I like most about December is that it is a happy/exciting month.

  154. I love the hustle and bustle of early December… the peaceful wind down at the end of December…the wild fun of the last day of the year.

  155. Love this time of year. Love your work.

  156. Sweater weather, baking, being with family, the Christmas tree (but we can’t put it up this year), and remembering Christ :)!

  157. My favorite thing about December is the decorations and lights!

  158. The faces of the children

  159. What do I love about December? The holidays, get-togethers, family time, the food, my kids singing at Midnight Mass this year for the first time.

  160. December is magical…maybe because of preparations for Christmas, maybe because of the changing landscapes with the onslaught of ice and snow, maybe because of the state of being caught between reflecting on the year that’s coming to a close and dreaming of the possibilities contained within the year about to begin…there’s just something magical about December 🙂

  161. Fav about Dec. is the free time during Christmas holidays to knit. (I work at school
    Happy about good baby news.

    I’m glad that things are going well with the baby. I’ll be praying for both of you.

    Thank you for sharing your patterns and your story!

  171. Hello, December! I love the warm, cozy feeling of the Christmas season. 🙂

  172. I love baking in December as well as listening to Christmas carols and crafting unique gifts for my loved ones.

  173. My favorite part of December is looking forward to seeing family and friends, winter festivities such as making our family’s special minty hot chocolate and baking, and sight seeing all of the beautiful and decorative homes!

  174. My favorite thing about December I guess would have to be the holiday traditions that we have had since I was little and now passing them on to my kids as well.. I like the snow not as much as I used to, but just not Christmas/Yule without snow..
    Congrats on the nearly new addition..

  175. My favorite thing about December is sweaters and sitting by the fire

  176. Thanks for this opportunity. Wishing you a happy holiday knitting season!

  177. There are so many things I like about December, the cool, crisp air and snow. The Christmas preparations like baking, decorating the house, Christmas lights everywhere lighting up the dark afternoons and evenings and probably most of all – seeing the anticipation of Santa coming in my son’s eyes. Kids simply make Christmas even more enjoyable!!!

  178. My favorite thing about December is that its my birth month…I was born exactly one week before Christmas on the 18th. I love the opportunity it brings to snuggle in a warm home with the ones you love and watch Christmas movies and drink yummy warm drinks. But…my most favorite favorite thing. ..is watching my little girl’s face light up when she sees her new stuff and that excitement she gets from playing with it for the first time. ♥♥♥

  179. I love the excitement of my kids each time we see Christmas lights, and the reminder that the Savior of the world came as a sweet, innocent baby.

  180. December is a great time of the year to get together with Family and Friends. Also came be sad because most of my Family live on the West coast. I live on the East coast… We talk and laugh over the phone… I get to plan what the tree will look like this year… So fun

  181. My favorite thing about Dec is the traditions !!!We make ornaments every year!!!

  182. Christmas is so very special! A time to remember everything the year has brought to us, a time for family and friends, and a time for Jesus. We should celebrate our lives every day and be thankful for all the many blessings receive…

  183. December is always a fun time, with the kids and their various activities, spending time with friends. This December is extra special, as my best friend and her hubby will welcome their first child into the world 🙂

  184. It’s definitely beginning to look & feel a lot like Christmas!!

  185. Love to drive around in the snow….gotta have snow for this….and look at all the christmas lights that people put up….then home for cocoa and christmas music with my fake lol fireplace:)

  186. My favorite thing about December is Christmas and getting to spend time with my family. It’s especially true this year because it’s our baby’s first Christmas and I can’t wAit to see how she reacts to snow, lights and festivities.

  187. December always makes me feel joyous and closer to my family. The spirit of love and companionship, and community always feels a little stronger this time of year.

  188. My favorite thing about December is Christmas time. I love the fact that the whole world celebrates. We may not celebrate the same but we all celebrate. For my family we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. I love the way people come together this time of year to help those who need it. We donate to Salvation Army. I love the decorations. We take our grandkids for rides to see all the houses decorated.

  189. I love Christmas with children, especially 3 – 7 – everything to them is magical and the positive energy they put off is amazing! Cookie baking, snow angels and snow people. When we were little, my parents would have a bare tree and boxes of decorations in the living room on Christmas eve. We’d go to bed early (so Santa would come) and when we woke the house was a Christmas wonderland. they would stay up most of the night decorating so that “magic” and Santa would give us a merry Christmas. My favorite season, by far!

  190. My favorite thing about December is all the Birthdays in my family, including my son and husbands. and then Christmas the month is so full of celebration.

  191. It’s no longer nearly December, it is December!! Time is flying! My favorite thing about December is getting to pull out all the little snowmen. Snowmen and snowflakes are my favs and I love getting to pull them out and seeing them around the house. I don’t much like the cold or snow, so I don’t like that about December. And each Christmas I strive to bring it back down to basics and do handmade, from the heart, $5 or less for gifts in our family. I enjoy doing that and seeing what everyone in the family comes up with. Of course I crochet, so the addition of 10 new patterns would sure be nice!

  192. My favorite thing about December is the love that seems to spread larger then any other time of the year. In our group, we work all year round to donate to those in need but in December, it seems, as it happened to the grinch, that everyone’s heart grows 3 times it’s size. I wish this kind of love would stay with everyone all year round.

  193. my favourite thing about december is remembering and celebrating the Lord’s birth. the best gift of all!!

  194. I love the looks on my grandchildren’s faces when they talk about all the activities at their churches, schools & the shopping centers…..the decorations are always awesome & we have an area here in Kansas City that has a fantastic light display that has already been turned on!

  195. Love all the Christmas decorations and lights. Fun to go to the mall and NOT shop but just soak up all the Christmas “spirit.”

  196. Thank you for sharing your knit and crochet life with us! In December I’m grateful for the moisture that, we hope, will get us through the dry days of summer. I love the crisp, clean air. Sending positive thoughts to you and those you love.

  197. I love December because of the holiday spirit and I get to see family members that I have not been able to see for such a long time.

  198. I read the e-mail, congrats on the good news.

  199. I absolutely love it when I can go outside sipping hot tea, coffee or apple cider…..inhaling the cold air & listening to the birds.

  200. my favorite thing about December is my grandmother’s amazing Christmas cookies- the candy cane cookie recipe that she has been using since the 70s is the best! I crave those all year 🙂

  201. I just love all the Christmas lights.

  202. i also love december and christmas….just the joy of being around family and friends. Giveaways are always fun too 😉

  203. My favorite thing is being blessed with kids. Because December is so magical but being able to witness children enjoy the magic is the best blessing ever! Everything is magical from the snow, break from school, charity work, crafts, decorations, etc….

    December marks one more year I’ve gotten to spend with My Love and our family. I am a 3, almost 4 year breast cancer survivor at the age of 27 and my fiancé has been battling Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma for just over 2 years now and this December marks our second Christmas as a mixed family. I am very blessed to still be here and feel I am even more blessed to still have him here with us. God Bless you all and have a Very Merry Christmas!!!!

    • HAHAHA! I love that you qualified the “warm smells”! I just bought my first pair of skinny jeans this week….I must say that I’m also already a huge fan of the boots with skinny jeans! LOL

  260. Thanks for the giveaway! I would so love to win! Your patterns are adorable!

    I especially love the month of December because I love Christmastime! I’m just enchanted with all the magical sights, smells, tastes, and textures that come out with the holidays. I grew up in a home where we hardly ever decorated & Christmas wasn’t a big deal, but my husband is like a kid at Christmas and his joy and love for traditions has rubbed off on me. We have alot of fun throughout the month of December with our 4 kiddos!

    • Awesome Shelley!! I love that your husband’s holiday love has rubbed off….I love all those things too. I wish we could keep Christmas lights up year round! Everything would be so much cheerier 🙂

  261. Christ’s Birth!!

  262. My favorite thing about December is looking forward to a new year! It’s also the “coziest” month. As long as you don’t go outside too much 😉

    • I know what you mean! There’s something pretty amazing about staying snuggled up by the fire! And yes – a new year is always a fun new start.

  263. At december, i love to have many time with my family. I must go to work and can make my snuggly days with my hubby and our childs. Between this, i can crochet. What could be better?

  264. In December I love the time with my family doing baking, decorating and watching movies together.

  265. Your patterns are beautiful!

  266. One of my favorite things about December is the cooler weather, which puts me in the mood to bake for my family & friends. My absolute favorite thing is spending Christmas with my family–making cinnamon rolls for breakfast, reading about the birth of Jesus Christ in the Bible, then opening our presents.

  267. I think my favorite thing this month will be watching my two toddlers (1 and 2) with our tree. I have a feeling it will be the big hit of the month. Ha ha. I may also hate the tree by the end since I have a feeling not many ornaments will stay on it. 😉

    • That’s going to be so fun Courtney! We bought non-breakable ornaments for my son’s first Christmas, and they were all over the house. Less stress and more fun though 🙂

  268. I love your patterns. Good luck with your internet.

  269. I love spending the cold dark evenings in front of a roaring fire working on my new melodys makings patterns
