Celebrate Christmas in July with Knitting

It‘s never too early to get started on your Christmas knitting! I thought you might like a few ideas for some little projects to carry around with you to work on this summer:

Grab a copy of Holiday Knit Dishcloths by Katherine Satterfield and knit up a bunch of Christmas Tree, Saint Nick, and Dashing Snowman cloths for everybody on your list. Nobody ever has too many dishcloths, and these Christmas-themed, hand-knitted dishcloths work up quickly and make perfect little gifts.

Knitting + Beading = Beautiful! With Beaded Ornaments to Knit, you can create simply beautiful decorations for Christmas or to display year-round, and they make thoughtful gifts for special friends and family members.

Those famed stockings from The Night Before Christmas story were surely hung by the chimney with care by dedicated knitters! If you’d like to knit up special, keepsake stockings for your family and friends, I’ve got some great options to share:

If you’re looking for a whole book of knit stocking patterns, take a look at The Stockings Were Knit by Mickey Landau. It offers up 8 designs with something for everybody—including the family pets.

Check out the Nordic Stocking and the Trees Stocking from A Cuff Above by Cynthia Guggemos! The great thing about this book is that not only do you get two festive stocking patterns, you get 21 other patterns for socks, legwarmers, and slippers that would also make excellent gifts.

My complaint about stocking stuffing on Christmas Eve has always been that the stockings just weren’t big enough. These two oversized Stocking designs from Knit with Deborah Norville would definitely solve that problem.

And how cute are these knitted Bears? Also from Knit with Deborah Norville, they’re all made from the same pattern using different yarn weights. What little kid wouldn’t be thrilled to find one of them stuffed in a stocking?

The ultimate knitting gift giver needs a copy of Knit Along with Debbie Macomber: A Charity Guide for Knitters. In addition to including heartwarming ideas for sharing your knitting with the folks who need most, the book features 18 knit projects specially designed to brighten the lives of men, women, children, and infants who face illness or other difficult situations—hats, mittens, socks, and more!

Okay folks, get busy and tend to your Christmas knitting!
