I love holiday gift issues...Could it be because, like a true process knitter, I love knitting things for other people? This year's Interweave Holiday Gifts special issue did not disappoint, and we have some great projects in it!
This hat and mitten set made the cover! The Paprika Hat and Mitten set is designed in Montera Heathers by Michelle Heaney and shown in #3808, peat and #3847, copper. Hat requires one skein of each color; mittens require one skein of each color (you'll need two skeins of each color to make both hat and mittens.)
Mousie Katousie is designed by Jil Eaton and knit in Jil Eaton MinnowMerino, one skein each of #4758 rouge (MC) and #4735 chartreuse (CC).
Edward's Owl is also designed by Jil Eaton and knit in Jil Eaton MinnowMerino, one skein each of 4785 orangini (MC) and #4789 pinque (CC)
The Allegoro Table Runner, designed by our very own Susan Mills (Rav link) is knit in Allegoro, four balls of #5616 in Parchment. Don't forget to also see the tutorial on page 74 by Joni Coniglio on grafting in pattern, a technique with several handy applications.
And finally, the Aemelia book cover by Franklin Habit, who blogged about it a few days later, knit in St. Denis Nordique, 2 balls of #5879 ultramarine.
