I'm one of those people that would rather not see Christmasy stuff everywhere until December, but when it's a question of making decorations by hand I think it's fair to start a little sooner than that. This year I'm using Lucy of Attic24's bauble decoration pattern to make ornaments for our tree. I simplified the pattern a bit since I don't have any cute buttons or beads, so instead of making the hanging loop as a separate chain, I'm just chaining it as I crochet the two circles together and then joining it back into the edge. I'm happy with how quick and cute they are!
By the way, if you haven't visited Attic24 before, I recommend it - I always find Lucy's love of color and crochet very inspiring.
