In a couple days the new issue of Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2012 will be available in print and digital download. I am very happy to write that I have a pattern in this issue, Cranberry Mitts.
Cranberry Mitts are worked in the round from the bottom up with a knitted in thumb gusset. Contrast color bobbles form little clusters of berries on a background of twisted stitches.
It is already time to think about holiday gift knitting! After years of driving myself crazy making presents for everyone I know, I have pared down to just making a few gifts for people I know that really enjoy hand crafted items. I'm not sure what I'll make this year, but at least I know it is time to start thinking about it. What are you going to make for gifts this year? There are plenty of inspiring patterns in this issue of Holiday Gifts. Hats, scarves, gloves, and socks for the whole family plus home decor items.
Cassie loves to knit, read and cook. She sometimes does all three at the same time.
