The "Little Wallet" and "Project Bags" from Valorie Wells Designs are the perfect QUICK gift to make this year for anyone on your list. They both use very little fabric, a great project for your scraps, and are super fast to sew. The "Little Wallet" would make a great gift card holder and the "Project Bag" is perfect for filling with a special skein of yarn or a few fat quarters.

Need a quick knit for a holiday gift? Try the "Welted Fingerless Gloves" from Churchmouse. I love these patterns! They are so well written and the photos by Jared Flood are amazing. I cast on the first of the pair last night and knit one while watching a movie, and just finished the second one tonight. The photo shows the gloves knit in Manos Silk, which I've used to make two pairs and love them, but any DK weight yarn will do. This pattern is a great stash buster or a perfect special yarn project.

Take a break from Sunday Football and the holiday rush and join me anytime time this Sunday, December 5th from Noon - 4 pm to knit this adorable family of snowmen. This is a very quick knit and would make a great gift too!
