The Knitting Project: Free Holiday Knits

With my socks project a bust, I was leery about starting another one so soon, but then I came across this yarn in Walmart.

new yarn

So, I’m going to knit up a pair of wrist warmers, with a cable pattern (just to bump up my knitting experience), and maybe another hat to go with it. I love the smell of a new project!

Anyway…since I’m all excited, I thought I’d pass on my excitement with a few patterns. As Christmas is right around the corner and most people have their shopping done, what do you get someone who has everything? If you’re a knitter, why not make them something? It’s personal and (I think) will mean more to them because you took the time to make them something.

Here are a few ideas.
