The crew at Gather is knee-deep in holiday knitting, how about you? Whether you’ve already started or you’re still thinking about what to make, there’s still some time! We’re stocked with some great bulky yarns like Cloud9 Fibers’ Bennoto and Echoview Fibers’ Ranger as well as worsteds and DKs by Malabrigo and The Dye Project. Here are some of our favorite patterns this holiday season.
The Shadbush Hat, from the current Quince & Co Plain And Simple trunk show, is a great option. It’s cute, slouchy and a fast knit in worsted weight yarn. We’ve also just restocked our Malabrigo Rasta supply, and this chunky, cozy yarn is great for luxurious cowls like Marian, a long time fave, or the Pretty Brioche Thing cowl, a new fave! Or grab a skein of the lovely Chickadee Organic Heather and whip up a pair of these Nalu Mitts.
If you’ve run out of time or energy to create your own handmade gifts, stop by and stock up on some gorgeous pieces handmade by local designers and artists. Renewable Blooms’ needle-felted unicorns are swiftly finding new homes and knit designer, Bunnymuff, has a variety of handknit hats and cowls available, as well as a great selection of adorable hand-stitched ornaments and pins. We have also stocked up on notions, pins and project bags - the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite knitter! What are you planning for the holidays?
