On the 1st Week of Christmas Fibertastic Friday Gave to Me…

…projects you can whip up in a flash for all of those gifts you forgot you needed to give!

The holiday season has officially snuck up on us. As of this post, there are only eight more days until the start of Hanukkah and nine more days until Christmas! EEEP! So we’re here with three projects you can crank out just in time.

First off is the Crinkle Cowl kit from Universal Yarns. This kit includes everything you need for a lovely and sparkly cowl, plus a bag you can reuse for all of those future planned projects. These kits are available in cream, denim blue, and black. Each kit is $45.50.

Second are Bella’s Mittens, a free pattern available on Ravelry, made using one skein of Berroco Inca Tweed. This super soft and delightfully tweedy chunky yarn will keep your hands warm on even the coldest of winter’s days. Plus, the added length helps protect your arms from the snow that always seems to work its way down our coat sleeves. The total cost for this project is $16, needles not included.

Last is the Calorimetry headband, also a free pattern on Ravelry, made using one skein of Cascade Cloud. This yarn is a 70/30 merino wool and alpaca blend and has a hollow chain ply construction meant to help hold warmth in while keeping the yarn itself lightweight. This project takes just over half of the skein, so there’s not quite enough yarn to make two. You can always mix and match with some leftovers from another project for a second one. The total cost for this project is $16, needles not included.

Be sure to stop by the shop for even more quick project suggestions!

Have fun, don’t panic, and stitch on my fellow theorists!
