Happy December everyone!
It’s officially the month of Christmas!

We have a feeling that this is the situation many of us are in right now…

Fear not, for we have compiled a list of gift knit ideas for you.
Everything from quick knits you can whip up in a day,
to intense projects for people who are dedicated to knitting every day this December.

* In the Christmas Spirit *

How can you not have Snowmen and Gnomes for Christmas?
These cuties will only take a few hours~ days to finish, 
(depending on how fast you knit) 

Check out the great colour range of Rowan Felted Tweed for these projects!

These Mini Christmas Stocking Ornaments will surely light up any Christmas tree they get hung on!
Our Mirco Skein Kits have the perfect amount of yarn for this tiny project.

Maybe you’ve never knitted socks before because you don’t know how you feel about working with such a small circumference.
Well these Christmas Calendar Socks are perfect for you 🙂 What can be better than receiving gifts wrapped in hand-knitted Christmas Stockings?
It can be your excuse to try out the new Ashford DK (it’s a softer upgrade)!

* Quick Knits They’ll Love *

Did you just learn how to knit this year?
The Headband with a Twist can be the perfect project that’ll allow you to subtly show off your newly acquired skill!

If you use Ravelry or Instagram, you’ve probably seen people make this Sophie Scarf.
If you know how to knit (you don’t even need to know how to purl), you’re all set. 

The Indiecita Baby Alpaca is sooooo soft, great for things worn around your face/neck.
Plus, it will only take one ball of this yarn to make the headband or scarf!

An 8ply beanie with no excess fabric at the crown? Yes Please!
I started the  Belafonte Beanie  after work and finished it before bed.
One ball of Brushtail 8ply, one night, one beanie. 

We’ve still got a few more weeks till Christmas.
If you’re planning on knitting an hour or few most nights,
you can definitely go for the Laulu Shawl
Hold a strand of Regia Premium Cashmere with a strand of Sesia Vivianne Silk Mohair for ultimate softness and squishiness. 

* Not Ugly Christmas Sweaters*

Checkout this new Holly Sweater- Kids by Knitting for Olive. 
BC Garn Bio Balance is half-half cotton and wool; it may be the ideal yarn choice for a Christmas top in the Southern Hemisphere. 

Do you want to whip up a Let’s Christmas Sweater in no time?
Crochet some chain stitch cables and make some pompoms with Pompom Makers;  sew them to tops for instant Christmasfication.

The Holly Sweater also comes in an adult size!
How cute would it be to have matching tops for you and the little one?
You can add a strand of Kremke Stellaris Sparkly Filament to make it extra festive.

Here’s a personal fave of mine!
The Santa Baby is a free pattern. Look at how people have decorated their Christmas trees here!
Pair Sesia Mistral with Sesia Vivianne Silk Mohair for your colour combo.

Hopefully, this gave you some gift knitting ideas!

We’ll have another blog post dedicated to gifts you can get for knitters in your life.
