LAST MINUTE Holiday knitting

No pressure, 

but the first day of Hanukah is less than one week away and Christmas just over two weeks.

If you want to give that special hand-knitted gift, here are some guidelines. ideas and patterns which you may want to consider.
If you don't mind giving someone an unfinished project with the promise to finish it, then all doors are open.  But if you want the gift to be finished with all yarn ends woven in and wrapped with a pretty bow on top, then consider this:
The key is, to look at the yardage used for the pattern and then decide if you have enough time to knit it up.
For example, if you are planning on knitting a hat for someone and you love that pretty fingering weight yarn, bear in mind that you need approximately 400 yards of yarn to finish the hat and this may take some time.  But if you choose heavier yarn it only takes less than 100 yards to knit up a hat and you can get it done in time if not even on your way to the holiday party!



For that special someone and if you have a little more time.
Only two skeins (262 yards) of Borgo de 'Pazzi Naturalia


Only one ball (87 yards) of Cascade La Grande if you make  a smaller pompom; or add a fur pompom for even more speed :)
Only one skein (90 yards) of Madeline Tosh ASAP.
Only one skein of Loopy Mango # 5 (70 yards)
Only one skein of Loopy Mango #5 (70 yards)


Only 106 yards of super bulky yarn such as Cascade Magnum


Only one skein of Loopy Many Big Loop (125 yards) and it really only takes hours to make.


Really any baby things are quick to knit up as they are so little :) <3
  • Headband (free pattern!)
Only about 35 yards of worsted weight yarn


 100 yards of worsted weight cotton

 100 yards of worsted weight cotton
 40 yards of worsted weight cotton

25 yards of worsted weight yarn and fiberfill.

I am wishing you all much happiness during your holiday knitting <3
