With Thanksgiving a week away, I was thinking about some fun hostess gifts to take to Thanksgiving dinner. I really like this wine bottle cozy to accompany a nice bottle of wine and I also am considering making some sock yarn braided trivets to use up some of the endless balls of sock yarn in my stash.
Alas, all that personal knitting will have to wait while we rush to complete a few kits that would make ideal gifts for someone special in your life. We have taken great care to make things that are unique, and will fit in most people’s gift-giving budget, with regard to both time and money!
The first is that we have adapted our popular Cashmere Ribbon Cowl to worsted wool, and switched out the hand-dyed silk ribbon for a sporty, stitched, ultra-suede ribbon. It is a beautiful accessory that looks expensive, is simple to complete, and will impress any fashionista on your holiday list. The great news is that you can get it done in a weekend!
The second kit is a VERY unique neckwarmer that has a LOT going for it. First it is done in a variegated yarn made of 70% organic wool and 30% nettle. It incorporates 2 interesting stitches: a warm, dense herringbone stitch accented by a scalloped leaf border. To make this kit really standout, we have sourced a handcrafted scarf pin that completes the look. This is a sophisticated gift that looks very complex, like it took a long time to complete, but again you can whip it out in a weekend.
I am pleased to announce that both kits will be featured on my website next week and will be ready to ship immediately! Maybe you can get one in time to do some knitting over the long Thanksgiving Holiday weekend!
With the holidays upon us, it is easy to get caught up in the race to spend the most and give the most impressive gifts. I must remind myself even, that sometimes the simplest handmade gift can be more meaningful and appreciated, since it is a sign of your authentic caring. Plus, there is the added bonus that whenever they wear it, they think of you.
