'Tis the season of warm and cozy. As those of us who live in colder climates start getting into nesting mode and adjusting our eating habits, clothing, and activities, why not bring that lovely, cuddly feeling into our home decor as well?Knit, needlecraft and crochet decor doesn't have to be old and crotchety like what may come to mind from your grandmother's generation. This trendy decor has taken on a new spin thanks to the rise of the indie-craft movement. Now these traditional arts and techniques have become quite chic and hip.
Here are some examples of how knit decor can add much warmth to your home without sacrificing style. I sure wouldn't mind having some of these pieces around our home this winter.
