Holiday Project Round-Up

As the world’s slowest knitter, I should’ve started my Holiday gift projects last summer, but I get the impression that there is still time for those who knit at an average pace to get some gifts made and make loved and well-liked ones happy (and warm). Some of my favorite projects from around the Yarniverse:

Alpaca Mini Socks Pattern from Classic Elite Yarns – pattern for these adorable little socks is free. Make a bunch and create a nontraditional advent calendar.


Pretty in Pink: Knit a Playful Pink Ribbon Hat – granted, this post and project idea was designed for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but each of my sisters would love something like this.


Glass Flip-Flop Crochet Pattern – I was just at WineStyles this week and saw some wine glass flip flops that I thought were pretty cute… not quite as cute as handmade, though. These are adorable and come via The Crochet Dude.


Puff Daddy is in the House – I would love this! It looks easy and quick and tons of fun. You can get the info and the pattern via Mason Dixon Knitting.

Delores Park Cowl – A one-skein project that knits up quickly and I can imagine it in a variety of colors for mom, best friend, office mate… who knows! I might have to try this one.

Right now, I’m leaning toward creating little “bath kits” with a knitted (or crocheted if I can get my act together on that) washcloth with a bar of homemade soap (not by me, but from my local crafter’s market) in a pretty bag of some sort. There are tons of patterns for washcloths and dishcloths on the internets.

I like the Bernat pattern for knitting.


And finally, humorous look at “knitter’s calculus” from Mary Mooney at K2TOG.
