Countdown 14

Today only, Palpitation is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

I’ll admit it, there’s a chance this could get sappy.  Because really, it’s a tiny knit heart, at least a few of you are going to use this in some sort of way that will make my normally Grinch-y self just the tiniest bit uncomfortable.  But as long as you’re careful, and promise to keep most of your mushy feelings safely contained, I think we can pull this off.

What’s up? I’m doing a December countdown! Now through Christmas Eve, I’m putting one pattern a day on sale for 25% off (I started with socks and moved on to hats and have now jumped to stuff you can knit in a day because I am not going to suggest anyone take on anything bigger than that this time of year). Each sale only runs one day (until 11:59pm eastern time), so grab it while you can.

Today only, Scintillation is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

Ok, let’s move away from ‘stuff you wear on your body’ to ‘teeny tiny things you hold and coo over.’  Because really, for some folks, a couple of these will be way more exciting than a hat anyway.  Now, I’ll be super honest and say that, if you’re not used to knitting small things, your first small project always feels a bit like wrestling with an angry hedgehog.  But, once you get the feel for them, they work up ridiculously quick.  And I’m pretty sure everyone would be delighted to have one to hang on a tree or a lavender filled one to tuck in a drawer.

Today only, Bespeckle is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

Ok, so this is half hat, half excuse to really dive in and say everything I ever wanted to say about pompoms all in one place.  And somehow, somewhere along the way, it also turned into ‘how to ad random speckles to your knitting as though that were a totally normal thing people wanted to do.’  The end result really is fun though…nice simple hat topped with the perfect pompom.  It’s another of those patterns where you can make the same thing for everyone and just mix up the colors and pompom style as needed to make them all individual!

Countdown 11

Today only, Circumvolute is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

This…this is suspiciously close to being just a plain stockinette tube.  The things that make it more than that are tiny (itty bitty one over one cables, tucked in just often enough to keep you entertained but not so often that you get slowed down), but effective.  And despite being almost embarrassingly simple, I’ve yet to see a person who doesn’t basically make grabby hands and try and rip it off my head whenever I wear it.  So I suspect it will be a hit for anyone you might be gift knitting for!  Oh and there’s a second equally adorable hat in the pattern too, in case you like that sort of thing!

Countdown 10

Today only, Permutation is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

So the trick here is that the second time you knit something, it goes so much faster because you fingers already know how to do the fancy bits.  And this pattern?  Well this pattern actually includes literally dozens of different variations for how you can put it together.  So you can learn the fancy bit once, then work it up in as many different variations as you have folks to knit for.  Everyone gets their own version, you get to knit a whole stack of awesome in record time.  Everybody wins.

Countdown 9

Today only, Petiole is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

Now look, I know lace might not seem like the fastest choice.  But this is actually a surprisingly speedy lace.  It’s so deeply logical that your fingers will have the hang of it in no time.  And it’s a beautiful example of how a tiny hint of lace can make thicker yarn look delightfully delicate (mine is knit with worsted, and it looks awesome).  Plus there are some seriously tiny (and shockingly adorable) cuffs in there that you can bang out in no time if you get in a bind.

Countdown 8

Today only, Smashing is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

It’s time to move on to hats.  Especially hats that work up quicker than they have any right to.  This one is basically just a ribbed tube, with a little bit of fancy footwork thrown in to make it slant off to the side like that (it’s what makes the little turned up bit, which is adorable, but not at all hard).  Oh and there are adorable little cuffs in the pattern too…you know, in case you get done ahead of schedule and need something to fill in all that extra time.

Today only, Tacit is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

It might be time to abandon feet and move on to hands.  These are quicker than they seem (especially if you make the wrist a bit shorter than I did), and that gorgeous cable pattern is always a show stopper!

Today only, Calceiform is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

So I’ve got you convinced you want to do slippers, not socks, but you want something a bit more delicate that we did yesterday?  Well I’ve got you covered.  These take the tiniest little bit of lace and turn it into something with major impact.

Today only, Burgeoning is on sale on ravelry for 25% off with the code COUNTDOWN.

Decided it’s past time for socks (very reasonable!), but have a sock lover you’re gifting for?  Try knit slippers.  Seriously, they’re magic.  They’ve got all the cozy good vibes of knit socks but take maybe a third the time!
