2009 Holiday Gift Guide

It's that time of year to whip out the needles and get cracking on holiday knits! To help your efforts, we have put together a list of our favorite quick knitted projects - so you can get started & finish before the man in the red suit visits.

Project 1: February Baby Sweater - an Elizabeth Zimmerman classic can be knit with the lace pattern or without for a more gender neutral sweater

Project 2: Lychee Mittens by Kate Gagnon Osborn. Knit out of cozy Terra (a luxurious blend of baby alpaca, wool & silk). Makes a very nice, soft gift to keep hands warm as temperatures drop.

Project 3: Star Crossed Slouchy Beret by Natalie Larson. This is a great quick knit that can be made with one or two skeins. It's a great gift for your sister or friend.
Project 4: 5th Avenue Infinity Scarf by our own Margaux Pena! This is a fantastic and trendy knit. From the runways to the covers of Vogue, Infinity scarves are everywhere & this pattern, in particular, looks beautiful knit up & worn on any chilly day! Be the first to knit this pattern from one of the best up-and-coming knitwear designers!

Project 5: Grande Cabled hat. Knit this cute hat as the perfect stocking stuffer or gift to yourself. The perfect project to keep you warm through the cold winter months.
