I swear that last time I looked up it was the beginning of November!  Then it was mid November – now November is gone and the Christmas Season is fully on us!

Are you looking for a quick project to make a fabulous gift?  Or some yarn that will practically knit itself?  We have some wonderful options!  Malabrigo yarns offer some fabulous heavy weights, soft and oh so beautiful Merino.  Rasta, Aquarella and Gruesa are all variations on the heavy theme.

This Infinity Cowl/Scarf took only one hank of Magnum.

Madelinetosh has entered the ring with its new A.S.A.P.!  I have just finished writing up a mitten pattern that will take only an evening or two to knit!

Very fun - animal hats - she still has a fox one to knit.

Magnum by Cascade Yarns is another gorgeous yarn.  Soft and heavy – this is possibly the heaviest wool in the store.  Rustic, an Acrylic yarn by Sirday, offers a very quick result as well.  Come on in and see the options for a quick knit Christmas!

One customer is well into her Christmas Knitting (name with held until after Christmas)!  Her hats are sure to be a hit!

We love it when our customers share their projects;  Fiona has just finished some Fingerless Chihuly Mittens for herself – and is working on a co-ordinating cowl, to go with them.  What are you knitting up for Christmas gifts?  Or gifting yourself?!
