Tick, tick, tick...


December is upon us! I can't believe how this year is speeding past. If that makes you fret because you haven't finished all the items you want to make for presents, then don't worry - there is still plenty of time for some great Holiday knitting. 

So I am going to write a series of blogposts with some ideas for items you can start right away. Today, I'm going to feature three small items that are quick to make and light to post.



The first one is one of Anna's patterns, the Apple Pocket. I use these knitted phone covers all the time and find that they really hug your phone well. 

There are two versions included in the pattern - a slim-line case that easily fits into your pocket or a slightly thicker version which gives some extra padding. 

For more details about the Apple Pocket pattern, please see Anna's website.



The second idea is for some bracelets made in i-Cord in a zingy cotton yarn. The Ryedale Bracelets are worked in the style of the ever-popular paracord bracelets and are fastened with easy-to-use side release buckles. They would make wonderful presents for teenagers but are also useful for medical alert bracelets.

I also use mine as a holder for my spare double-pointed needle when I am knitting socks. It's always useful to have an easy place to store your spare needle while you count stitches!

The i-Cord can even be produced using a cord knitter, so this is a quick project to complete. For more details about the Ryedale Bracelet, please see my pattern store.


And the last idea today are these super-cute lavender sachets. This is another of Anna's patterns, Lavender Fish. They can be worked in a single colour or with bands or stripes, as in the photo above. Make a few to hang on clothes hangers or slip into a clothes drawer. These would make a lovely gift by themselves but could also be paired with a block of hand-made lavender soap or lotion for a gift set.

To see more details of the Lavender Fish pattern, please see Anna's website.

Have fun making some of these lovely gift ideas. Next time, I'll have a look at some fun ideas for knitted bathroom accessories.

Happy Knitting!
