8 Thanksgiving Knit Craft Projects

Growing up, there were few things I enjoyed more than going to Grandma's house and getting together with my family. With the exception of Christmas, Thanksgiving was the one time during the year where distant cousins, aunts and uncles, and grandmas and grandpas would all come together to share a meal and some stories.

While the food was always delicious, it wasn't just that which made the holiday special; it was the whole experience -- the food, the family, and the fun decorations.

Now that I'm older and plan to host my own Thanksgiving gatherings, I want to be able to recreate those special memories that my grandmother made for me so effortlessly. Thanks to this collection of 8 Thanksgiving Knit Craft Projects, I'll be able to make my celebration one to remember, one stitch at a time.
