Get into the holiday mood when you crochet the Colors of Christmas Afghan. With all the stores starting Christmas shopping earlier and earlier, we find it difficult to embrace the holiday when it seems so long away. With this christmas crochet blanket, you can start way before Christmas and still feel a bit jolly because you know you'll definitely be finished with it by the time December 25 rolls around. Keep it for your own cozy fireplace afghan or give it to someone you care about after you're done.
