Christmas Movies & Sweater Knitting!

Written by Gabby Kernozek

Grab some hot cocoa, your favorite yarn and make sure the TV remote is nearby!

 As you begin to fill up your project or gifting to-do list it is important to still cherish the season as we are in it! We are fans of having something playing on the TV to help pass the time while enthralled in a project. Whether it be used as background noise or a show/movie you've been dying to watch multitasking while you craft can be a great time.

 On average the median time to knit a sweater from start to finish  is about 21 hours of knitting according to Medium.com. Here are some classic Christmas movies that are perfect to stay festive as you knit a cozy sweater this holiday season!
