Summer and Gift Knits!

I know a heat wave is blasting across this great nation, but Christmas, Hanukkah and Kwanzaa are less then 6 months away! Have you been thinking about your gift knitting?

Let me just give you a few ideas....

Harmonia's Rings Cowl

If you're a long time customer you may remember when I introduced Sivia Hardings' Harmonia’s Rings Cowl, it was very popular and remains so. It knits up beautifully in Berroco's Ultra Alpaca which is now 25% Off.

Sivia has taken this lovely accessory and has grown it into a tunic sweater, the Harmonia's Rings Sweater!

She shares the inspiration behind the transformation..."After many requests, the Harmonia’s Rings Cowl has been re-engineered to fit seven sizes. The addition of a fitted body to the drapey yoke makes a world of difference! Because of the drape of the yoke, this design accommodates a wide range of body types."

Wear this lovely pullover alone or wear it layered… the perfect compliment to your wardrobe through the seasons, and it would make a very special gift for a well deserving friend.

Sock knitting is perfect for this hot weather, they're small and travel well and they also make very thoughtful gifts.
Beaded Faux Cable Anklets

Try one of these new designs by HeartStrings FiberArts, for the women on your gift list knit a pair of the Beaded Faux Cable Anklets, a textured knit-purl stitch pattern and enhanced with beads created with only one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, which is 10% Off right now!
Johnny Socks

And for the men the Johnny Socks, this classic pair of socks features embossed ribs and diamonds.


And the versatile Isabella pattern, a hat, mittens and scarf set by Through The Loops, is an easy knit in a sophisticated stitch design that suits a wide variety of personal tastes and styles. And it only takes 3 skeins of Malabrigo Merino Worsted , which is also 10% Off, to work the entire set!
