Holiday Project Round-Up!

Finished all your shopping (and spinning and sewing and sketching)? No? Santa’s not going to be very happy with you. Don’t worry though–you may not be able to find a parking spot at the mall, but I’m guessing a seat at your computer screen is available! Browse through my holiday project round-up to find a quick project for that last person on your list; you’ll even get bonus points for presenting them with something handmade. Some projects may take longer, but many are doable in a day (or two, or three). It’s Winter Solstice, so you’ve got an extra long night ahead of you to stay up knitting in front of Sons of Anarchy marathon. What, is that not what all crafters watch while finishing up their holiday to-do list?

You have…1 day to prepare your gift!

Check out…
Flowing Infinity Loop 
(perfect if you have very limited time)
Handmade Necktie 
(my best suggestion for men’s gifts)
Festive Pennant Garland 
(if you still haven’t decorated)

You have…2-3 days to prepare your gift!

Check out…
Pleated & Ribboned Wristlet 
(great for all those NYE parties next week)
Felt Desk Boat & Wave Memo Board 
(for your disorganized friend)
Pine Cone Door Hanging 
(if you still still haven’t decorated)
Houndstooth Encircled Cowl
(yes, really–if you’re an experienced knitter, you can make one that fast!)

You have…4+ days to prepare your gift!

Check out…
City Maps Desk Calendar 
(for your favorite traveler who won’t be expecting their present until they get back from vacation–after Christmas)
Giant Eclectic Striped Stocking 
(what were you doing buying stocking stuffers and no stocking?!)
Simple Stripes Scarf
 
 (it’s okay if you cheat a little on this one and use an extra-bulky yarn!)
 
If you are a devout Christmas-eve shopper, or you just have a bad habit of really waiting until the eleventh hour, check back tomorrow for one last pre-Christmas project. Hint: if you want an extra unique infinity loop, wait to start stitching!

    Luckily, I am done, and I don’t know about Sons of Anarchy. Must be cable.

  1. […] great–the popularity of this loop-scarf tutorial proves it. If you check last December’s project round-up, you’ll discover an equally trendy and even more unique double-sided loop that’s just […]
