Christmas is almost here, which is why we wanted to give you just a few more last-minute gift ideas! We've done our best to cover all of your gifting needs this season - see more ideas below throughout this newsletter, too!
Happy Holidays, and thank you for all of your support this year!

1) First up, we've taken our gorgeous December Lorna's Limited Edition Color, "The Shire", and created a beautiful yarn bouquet using each of the weights of Lorna's Laces yarns - just for your favorite Tolkien fan (Terry wants one of these really badly!).

2) Next up is the Tower of Tosh, which includes 3 skeins of gorgeous Madelinetosh Tosh DK yarn, enough to make the popular Mara Shawl pattern (pattern included.)

3) Finally, check out our Winter Basket and Learn to Knit Baskets for adults and kids!

We've also included some of our other favorite fabric and sewing books below for you to peruse!

Check out the hand sewn skirt Laura made from Alabama Chanin's Studio Sewing + Design book using the cute Jay-Cyn knit fabrics from Birch Organics. Skye's dress, also shown in this photo, uses a different print from the same collection. We love their creativity!

Imperial Yarns Tracie: Now 20% Off!

Imperial Yarns are 100% made in the USA, and we just love the rustic and wooly feel of all of their yarns.

This yarn has tons of loft and comes in a variety of gorgeous colors. Tracie has sadly been discontinued, which means we are now able to offer it at a really great price! Check out one of our patterns using Tracie (and its differently spun counterpart Tracie Too) for some easy gift ideas like the Rustic Shawl, Convertible Button Scarf, Rhombus Feather Shawl, or the Swing Cardigan!

Gus's Woven Fur Wool Vest
Gus's Woven Fur Wool Vest

Gus has been obsessing over weaving since he bought a loom a few months back, and he thought it would be really cool to try weaving with the Erika Knight Fur Wool to create a warm and cozy vest to wear out in the warehouse this winter. The result is this gorgeous furry, but not too furry, fabric. He did both the warp and the weft in the fur wool and he trimmed the vest with leather. He also added some ornate clasps to top off the look. He says it's the perfect weight to keep him nice and toasty while he works. We think he is a creative genius, and we absolutely LOVE the result!

Monika's Heartsease Cowl
Monika's Heartsease Cowl

Monika wanted to try out the new Reggae Ombre yarn from Schoppel Wolle, so she snagged 2 balls and this cute little Heartsease Cowl pattern, which was a free download on Ravelry, and got to work. She crocheted it in just a few short hours with a US H hook. She loved working with the Reggae Ombre yarn because of its single ply felted texture and said it softens up a lot with washing. We love how gorgeous this turned out! Nice work, Monika!

Madison's Tosh Vintage Cabled Headband
Madison's Tosh Vintage Cabled Headband

Madison fell in love with this new color from Madelinetosh called 'Coquette', so she snagged a skein in Tosh Vintage and set out to find a pattern to go with it. She settled on a free pattern from Ravelry called the 'Kate Headband.' We think the result is super cute!

Leanne's Dora Maar Scarf
Leanne's Dora Maar Scarf

Leanne knit this scarf out of Classic Elite's Chateau yarn, which is a dyed version of their MountainTop Chalet yarn. The pattern is from Classic Elite's Portraits Booklet. She said the pattern calls for 5 skeins of the Chateau yarn, but she only used 4 skeins and still ended up with a super long and cozy scarf.

Laura's Hand-Stitched Skirt
Laura's Hand-Stitched Skirt

Laura has fallen in love with Alabama Chanin style projects, so she set out to try her hand at hand-stitching a whole garment. She started with a simple skirt because it just needs 2 side seams, a hem and elastic at the top - super simple! This cute skirt uses the chevron print Jay-Cyn Elk Grove fabric by Birch organics with a few little elk appliqued along one bottom side edge. She used brown thread to stitch the skirt and brown elastic at the top. The pattern is the basic skirt from the Alabama Chanin Studio Sewing + Design Book, which shows you all of the basic techniques you need to construct your own hand-stitched clothing. Laura says not to be intimidated by hand sewing - it's easier than it looks!

Erika's Honey Cowl
Erika's Honey Cowl

Erika found this special skein of Tosh Pashmina in one of our recent batches of Onesies and knew it had to go home with her. It looks like a cross between Lover's Walk and Cobbler, neither of which are normally available in Pashmina, so it's a truly special skein. The Honey Cowl is a Free Pattern on the Madelinetosh website, and normally calls for 1 or 2 skeins of Tosh DK, but the Pashmina with its generous 360 yards made the perfect in-between size. We love how this turned out and can't wait to see Erika wear this tons over the coming winter!
