In anticipation of the holiday gift knitting rush these "One Size Fits All" projects will let you enjoy your knitting without worrying about the fit. But first this special announcement...

Knitters have been asking me if I carry customized knitting labels to sew into their finished handknits and I'm happy to announce I've added a line of them just in time for your holiday knitting!

Custom Knitting Labels by Mountain Street Arts are personalized with your name and created on an eco friendly cotton twill ribbon that you can sew into your handmade garments. There are 10 designs to choose from. And these easy care labels can be machine washed and dried and a set includes 30.

These 6 "One Size Fits All" projects will have your gift recipient thinking it was custom made for them!


Sivia Hardings' unusually shaped wrap
Inkberry uses her favorite center back panel treatment, this time with wide, half-circular side panels. The overall effect is of wings which are anchored beautifully by the intricate leafy cables at the back. Interestingly, the combination of shaping techniques produces a wrap that will stay put and feels wonderful to wear. Inkberry is knit in 2 skeins of Schaefer's merino wool silk blend Audrey.

Jack in the Pulpit

Texture, lace and beads are more than the sum of their parts when merged together in Sivia's delightful
Jack in the Pulpit socks. Jack- in-the-pulpits flowers march up the center front, beads and all, and the undulating lacy ribs on either side step aside to let them pass and they're knit in Pico Accuardi Acid and Weed sock yarn.


Through The Loops'
Stheno Shawl is rectangular with gently curving cables framing a leaf motif. The patterns includes 3 sizes and two skeins of Pigeonroof's Original Sock is enough to quickly knit the smallest size.

And if you're looking for a stash busting project, an easy pattern to try cables for the first time, a little something for that luxurious skein of yarn you only have one or two of, or just a quick project Through The Loops' eBook Trio of Cowls has something for you. This eBook includes three cabled cowls, each with it's own personality. And one of them is knit in Madelinetosh Tosh Merino Light.
