last minute giftmas knits


Decided last weekend to make a hat as a last-minute Christmas gift ... good thing hats knit up fast! This is Earthen by Alicia Plummer, a nice, manly guys' hat pattern. I'm using some Knit Picks Swish Tonal (Thunderhead), and it's knitting up nice and squishy and soft!

What are you finishing up for Christmas this year? Wishing you speedy needles as Christmas nears!

  1. That's a lovely-looking hat. The yarn really does look delicious!

    Thanks for the link - I've favourited the pattern. One of my challenges for next year is to learn to knit in the round!

  5. I am doing last minute cowls and hats, but not really as presents, just to do small and quick items. And to ignore the beret, sweater, and cabled shawl already on the needles. LOL!
