Thanksgiving is one of my favourite days of the year (and I hope yours was lovely!) but y’know, I find the days of shopping madness that follow just plain exhausting. I am never so organised that I am thinking about gift-giving the weekend after Thanksgiving — I’m still lying around trying to recover from dinner!
Rather than add to all the craziness of the Thanksgiving weekend, it made sense to me to wait a few days, to let things calm down and get back to normal a bit before we even thought about holiday shopping. So if you’re like me and are just now starting to come up with gift ideas, let me share a few of mine…
For the Knitter who is Branching Out*
Leftie is a simple yet intriguing pattern that incredibly popular with knitters of all skill levels. A perfect holiday gift, you can use it to knit a quick last minute present, or just give the kit to your favourite knitter and let them have all the fun!
Each SpaceCadet Leftie kit includes one 100g skein of fingering weight yarn in a semi-solid colourway and five 20g mini-skeins of fingering weight in an assortment of colourways and fiber content — easily enough to complete the pattern with your own combination of colours. Create your leaves with all five colours or choose just your favourites. Or, switch it up by using the Mini-Skeins for the main colour and the semi-solid for the leaves!
Each kit is unique and when they are gone, they’re gone. Click here to see the colourways and grab your favourite quick.
