Knitting Mondays: Gift Knitting and a Flügel Giveaway

It’s Jillian with a bit of knitting.

We got a new a roof for our house this fall so I am knitting quite a few gifts for winter birthdays and various holidays.

Here’s what I’ve done so far:

Briar Rose infinity scarf

I knit a long (80″) infinity scarf for a friend for her birthday. I used Briar Rose Charity, doubled.


Tweedy Hat

This hat and I have had many words. It’s an easy pattern, a cable rib, but it took me four tries to get it right. Now it’s going to be a hard gift to giveaway.

I’ve still got mittens, 3 scarves, a pair of socks and 4 more hats to knit. Go knitter go!

What are you knitting for gifts this winter?


Do you want to knit a sweater this winter? How about Flügel from our current issue?

The generous folks at Blue Sky Alpacas  have donated a Techno yarn pack for Flügel for a giveaway. If you’d like to see this sweater on your needles, this giveaway is for you. Prize Value $138 – $253. One lucky knitter will win this prize.

    TOTALLY in love with that infinity scarf – any link to the pattern? The sweater kit would be lovely to win…..I like the classic lines of the sweater.

    Beautiful yarn! Hope I win it 😉 Also love the tweedy hat. If it was mine, I wouldn’t give it away!!!

    What a cozy looking sweater! Would love to knit it for myself as a gift for getting through the holidays in one piece.

    It IS always hard to give away something you worked really hard to get right. Maybe you can make another one for yourself. And it’ll be easier and go faster since you already learned the pattern.

    I’m curious about the Techno yarn – it’s an interesting idea, and I’ve never used anything like it before.
