It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...
With the festive knitting season in full swing I thought I should share some of my favourite (past and present) gifts and decorations to knit & crochet. I love Ravelry for searching out patterns and being able to save my favourites in bundles. Hopefully it's not too late to tempt you.
A very satisfying quick knit - especially with rainy & chilly winter days in October!
The construction was very cool. Start at the bottom and knit up to under arm. Knit sleeves separately then join and continue to knit yoke with decreases. Take care on the decreases. Lots of techniques to learn and practice.

Crochet string bags always reminds me of my Grandma. She was a country lady who we adore visiting. In summer it was HOT so she would swap her knitting for crochet and cotton. There was never a time where she would sit and not be busy with a project.

Time to dabble in a kit from WATG.
An easy knit and simple construction. Beautiful soft mohair. What's not to love?
