Interweave Knits: Holiday Gifts, 2013.

The latest magazine to arrive at the shop is Interweave Knits’ annual Holiday Gifts issue.

The Holiday Gifts issues are always bigger than the typical Interweave Knits, with more projects and greater variety. I spotted a lot of familiar yarns in use as I looked through the patterns, from knitted accessories and home goods to garments for adults and children. This textured pullover appealed to me even before I knew it was made in the luxurious Swans Island Organic Merino Worsted.

This little vest calls for Malabrigo Rios, a favorite superwash, worsted weight merino wool around here. It would also look great in Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted if more solid colors were desired.

This delicate lace scarf was made with just one skein of Jade Sapphire Lacey Lamb, a soft lambswool yarn that boasts 825 yards per ball.

This colorful afghan makes the most of the many yards on each skein of Cascade Eco+.

Plymouth Galway is our most basic worsted weight wool, smooth, sturdy and reliable, and coming in a huge palette of colors. This slouchy hat is made with only one or two skeins.

Look for the Holiday Gifts issue on the teacart, amongst the newest magazines and books. See you at the shop!

    • I know! But the idea is that if you want to have knitted gifts to give for the holidays, now is the time to start. I think of it as Interweave’s yearly reminder for us to get our acts together!
