If you’re looking for ideas for gift knitting, here’s a few suggestions…
For someone you’re seeing next week:
Nozky leg warmers – especially quick in littler sizes.
For your little dancer.
The Grey Gardens turban/headband – tres chic, and a single skein!
Bonus: actually practical, too!
Mr Popper’s Penguin hot water bottle cover
Would make a pretty great stuffed animal friend, too!
Spatterdash fingerless mitts.
Love these, and they’re particularly great if you’ve got a good button stash to dive into. Who says the buttons have to match?
A coffee cup cozy.
Works both ways – protects your hands, also keeps the coffee warm. Or hot cocoa, of course..
The Knotty But Nice Hat
Perfect for fussy men (Would work for the ladies, too!)
For a generous host:
Venezia beaded napkin rings.
Again – practical! Stops the bottles banging around in a gift bag.
For someone who takes an off-kilter approach to the season:
To begin with.
Also wonderfully quick and sure to generate laughs at a secret santa gift exchange.
The Vegan Fox
I made one of these ten years ago, and I love it still.
For someone you love very very much, and who doesn’t mind if the gift is a little late:
The Hibernate blanket.
Because it’s perfect.
The Bauble Shawl
The Latvian Vest
A tour de force.
