Here in Vancouver, the rain has hit hard, all I want to do these days is hunker down and knit, what about you?
I am super excited to announce, The Magpie Darling Shawl PDF pattern and knit kits are now available! If you didn't know already, I loooooove sparkles and so naturally, Magpie Darling Shawl was the perfect project to design. Its simple construction, blinged out sequins and beautiful SweetGeorgia yarns, makes this knit a pure joy; perfect for the Holiday season...and, who am I kidding, year-round! Each knit kit comes with the pattern, a glittery ball of sequins and a skein of SweetGeorgia Yarns in either Bulletproof Sock, Tough Love Sock or Flaxen Silk Fine. There is a curated selection of colors with limited quantities, so if you love it, get it. And, there are a few Magpie Darling Hat knit kits left, another must make! Perfect for gift-giving.
A few weeks ago I went on an Industry Retreat, put on by the Knit Social Gals. If you have never been on a "knit retreat," I highly recommend it. The setting was gorgeous and it was amazing to be in the company of amazingly talented women. Felicia from SweetGeorgia summed up the weekend so eloquently.
And, if you want to be entertained and educated on all the newest and greatest knit swag, watch the Grocery Girls! I had the pleasure of meeting Tracie for the first time, she was just as lovely and hilarious in person!
So, its time to seriously get a hold of your gift-giving projects, the Holidays are creeping up. Here are some quick and easy projects to get you through. This year I made a handy Makers Gift-Giving Journal which will help you keep track of all your projects and giftee measurements and needs, year-round (holidays, birthdays, events, charity deadlines).
And, finish off your projects with a beautiful hang tag, it will take your gifting to the next level.
Happy Knitting Everyone! xo
