Lion Brand Yarn

  By Kids For Kids: November 13, 2005



Welcome to our November issue of By Kids 4 Kids! 

What is November?   The first real chill of winter, mid-terms and plans for the upcoming Winter holidays! 

We've got a great pattern for a cozy to keep your tea or hot cider nice and toasty during those study dates, a fun knitted rose (great for personalizing your backpack or to give as a gift!) and a clever project for a gift basket to hold whatever you may be giving!

Gift Wrap Emergency?

Use pretty paper (or even aluminum foil) and extra yarn -- Fun Fur and Trellis here -- to make your gift beautiful and unique!

This simple tea cozy is made of two triangles and felted!

You've Got All the Angles!!!
Mid terms are approaching and study dates are getting longer as we all get ready for mid-year exams.   Make this simple felted tea cozy -- a great way to keep a pot of tea or hot cider warm while studying!

Here is our favorite recipe for hot spiced cider.
   1 can of frozen condensed apple cider
   4 cans water (the label says 3, but this cooks down)
   1 cinnamon stick
   6 cloves
   10 whole allspice
Put in a pan and simmer on low heat for 30 minutes.  Goes GREAT with oatmeal cookies and there is nothing like coming home on a cold day to hot cider on the stove!

Knitted Roses

These knit wool-ease roses are the height of fashion!  Do all the backpacks at school look alike?  Hang a rose on yours and don't worry again about finding it in that heap on the gym floor!  Or use one or two to brighten up a lapel or purse.

Don't knit?  Try our crochet flowers pattern!

Make a few ahead for holiday gifts when you need a bit of a break from studying!

Knit or crochet a gift basket Fun Gift Baskets

If you're putting together a holiday gift that has goodies for kitchen or bath, knit or crochet a gift basket based on our knit or crochet dish cloth pattern.

After the lucky recipient enjoys the contents, they just rinse the 'basket' in the wash to get a lovely, thick dish- or wash-cloth!
