Holiday Gifts: Project Ideas

Looking for inspiration for holiday gifts? 
Let us share a few Firefly Fibers favorites!

Not So Tiny Slippers by Ysolda Teague - These adorable slippers are sure to be a big hit with your gift recipients! Using approximately 100 yards of a chunky yarn they are not only cute, but also a very quick knit! Our shop sample is knit using Malabrigo Chunky.
Tous Les Jour by Firefly Fibers - We designed this cowl for warm weather using Blue Sky Alpacas Worsted Cotton (100% organic cotton) and we've also used Spud & Chloe Sweater (55% wool / 45% organic cotton) for a version that is equally wonderful, but warmer for cold weather and cooler climates.

Spud & Chloe - Sweater
Mohair Bias Loop by Churchmouse Yarns & Teas - A versatile accessory, the Mohair Bias Loop is a sheer seamless loop that can be worn over the shoulders, as a long infinity scarf or doubled for a close fitting cowl. Worked on the bias, the edges lay nicely and it's perfect for the "non-thinking" project we all need. 

Using 2 balls of Rowan Kidsilk Haze, it will take a little more time to knit than the previous projects, but it's well worth the extra time for a special accessory. We're dressing our shop sample up with the new Kidsilk Haze Glamour and we can't wait for it to come off the needles! Both yarns are lovely and it's hard to choose. Either way, you're sure to have a beautiful gift that anyone (or yourself) will love.
All project supplies (patterns, yarn, needles...) are available at the shop.

Check back again for more project ideas as the holiday season closes in!

Happy Knitting!
