If you have an evening to knit, you have plenty of time to whip up some of these cute gifts for friends and family! I made this KnowKnits set in about 90 minutes. Everything you need comes in the kit, except the needles. Each kit makes both bracelets (although the skinny triple-wrap bracelet can also be worn as a necklace, which is kind of fun.) It comes in Blue Raspberry (shown here), Lavender, Honey, Spearmint, Green Apple, Coconut, Kisses, Grape, Cotton Candy and Cherry.
We also have fun kits from Laura Nelkin Designs. These take a little longer to make (but not too much), and are equally fun and would also make a nice gift for someone on your list. We have Butin Collars (shown here) and Butin Earrings to match. We have Mudra Necklaces and Mudra Cuffs. And we have Ribband Bracelets and Ruffled Necklaces. These kits also include the yarn and beads to make the items – you’ll add in the needles. All of them come in several different color choices. Here is a Butin Collar that Lisa, one of our Loopy class teachers, knit up for us.
It was fun to work on small projects for a change. When you get something done in one evening, you really feel like you accomplished something!
