Another month, another issue!
This one is packed full of quicker projects for your end-of-year gifting. I love making gifts that will be appreciated, worn and used by the recipients. After all, if we put all that time into it we sure want them to use it, right?
I’ve picked out a few projects that might get you in the spirit. And, if you’re not in the gift-making game, I give a few ideas for things you might want to try for yourself.
Our When Winter Winds Blow cowl is an easy knit, perfect for a long trip or TV knitting. Pick 2 complimentary or contrasting colors and go.
Then, we have our Tales of Winter Hoods. You can make these up in sizes for babies all the way to adult. The built-in cowl will keep the chill away from even the frostiest of recipients.
And then, we have Eunice.
How cute is she? Don’t let the length of the pattern scare you – it’s VERY detailed.
Make one for the child that has it all. And, since she’s 18″ tall, you can select from a huge variety of clothing options too.
If you’re not quite sure of the size, our Cha Cha Felted Backpack can be a great way to go. This one has adjustable straps so it can grow with the child too.
Who doesn’t love putting things in a pocket (or bag)?
Of course, if you’re just looking to make things for yourself, this issue doesn’t disappoint either.
Our Vox Populi Shawl uses two shades of yarn and slipped stitches to create a fun texture.
And, our Pretty Pavement Cowl combines mosaic knitting (tutorial coming!) and bulky yarn for a quick and satisfying knit.
Whether you’re knitting for yourself or a loved one, you have a lot to choose from. And don’t forget our archives too – there are some great treasures in there as well.
