Time for a Quick Holiday Knit?

Every year, around this time, we suddenly realize that the holidays are fast approaching and we’d better get cracking on those holiday knitted gifts! To help you create something special and beautiful in a short amount of time, we’re currently featuring some really lovely small projects. These are knit in just 1 to 3 skeins and come in some truly decadent, gift-worthy fibers.

One of our favorites this year is the Quaking Aspen Cowl by Tahki Stacy Charles. It’s a quick, 3 skein project in their Vermont Yarn (50% Merino / 50% Alpaca). It would make a perfect holiday gift.

Lazy Days Shawl Kit by Artyarns

IMG_0109A lazy knit-a-long… lazy because there’s no deadline or finish date! This beautiful little wrap would make a perfect gift for the holidays… so if you start now, you’ll have time to make gifts and one for yourself, too!

This luxurious yarn is knit in a simple pattern with an unusual construction… It’s worked in Merino Cloud (80% extra fine Merino/20% Cashmere) and a complementing Beading Silk or Beaded/Sequin Mohair for a bit of sparkle. Working with this yarn is a true treat. You can find more information about the knit-a-long on Ravelry here.

Happy knitting!

I enjoy knitting, but more importantly – wearing – Infinity Cowls/Scarves.  Usually a 300 yard project, knit on any size needle, with any yarn.  Then drape, wrap, and love!
