I wear a lot of knitted accessories. They add colour to my fairly neutral wardrobe, and I'm always cold so cowls and scarves work for me year-round. I also knit a lot of accessories to give away. This year most people will get a knitted gift as I try to simplify (and reduce) the holiday budget.
Antler Hat by Tin Can Knits. Made the largest size to fit my dad's head, so I hope he likes it. The colour is a bit brighter than he usually wears, but I think he'll like it. Teal is on-trend this year, but I'm pretty sure that's not on my father's radar!
Next up is a cowl that I will gift to someone (kids' teachers? colleagues? not sure yet...). It's another Tin Can Knits pattern - 2 x 2. It's a buttoned cowl in bulky yarn. I have some dk weight in the same colour (both are Patons Classic Wool) so maybe a matching hat or fingerless mitts will come too.
But those will come in November, as I'm worn out now!
