It's Not Too Late To Begin

Have you looked at the calendar lately? It's only 6 weeks until Christmas and Kwanza, 3 and a 1/2 weeks until Hanukkah begins and 7 weeks until New Year's Eve. Whoa. No matter what holidays you celebrate, if your plan is to hand make gifts, it's definitely time to kick it into high gear.

So, let us help you out with these ideas of gifts that there are still time to make. With 6-7 weeks left, the days are getting short so how about a scarf or beautiful shawl? If you're a fast knitter, how about the Walden shrug by Susan Mills in soft and cozy Tiverton Tweed (top left corner below)?

More great gift patterns to knit (clockwise from top right above): Telluride Shawlette in Telluride, Wellington scarf in Camelot, Mohawk Wool Leaf Scarf in Mohawk Wool, or perhaps Lucretia in Liberty Wool Light.

Giving handmade gifts is supposed to bring joy to both the giver and the receiver, isn't it?. So, if you're going to give handmade, start now with a visit to your local yarn store and cast on. We want you to enjoy making the gift just as much as your loved one will enjoy wearing it.
