I Know it might sound early, but the Holidays will be here before you know it! No need to panick just yet, but it’s probably time to get started if you haven’t yet.
I have just started myself, I won’t share what I have done or what I am working on as I want to keep it a surprise for the recipients, but I’m getting organised.
If you are short of ideas or are looking for some quick things to knit, here are some of my designs that you could use:
The Snowflake Cup Cozy is a very quick knit, perfect for the last minute or if you are short of time
The Toastie Slippers are also very fast to knit and perfect for the winter
Grow With Me Beanie will fit any child’s head, very practical if you want to knit for a child but are not sure of what size s/he needs
Or, if you are knitting for a child, you could always knit a toy, such as Fridolin the Bunny
From experience, I can say that knitted socks are usually very popular, why not try my Blois Socks?
Shawls are also favourites for elderly women relatives, I’m partial to Mela, embrace the asymmetry! The advantage of this one is that you can use any yarn and any gauge so it’s great to use stash yarn.
These are only a few ideas, there are many more things that you can knit for holiday presents, I hope it got you thinking
