Christmas Knitting for beginners

In the run up to Christmas my students get all enthusiastic about handmade gifts – this year we are working on some really lovely wraps and scarves.  Of course I take the opportunity to throw in a new skill.  This lovely wrap has a provisional cast on – so we can go back and add on the ruffle.  It is a really quick knit and very light and airy.  A knit kit for this will be available in my Dawanda shop next week.

I am also in the process of writing up a version in Drops Alpaca Silk.  This is a super soft and elegant wrap and great value at €5.25 for 3 balls in the drops alpaca sale.  Will dash off for now to get the sample off the needles.
