Lion Brand Yarn

  By Kids, For Kids: December, 2006



Happy Holidays! 

Is it possible?  Winter break is almost upon us and (ARGH!) finals?  At least, once the finals are over, we have a week break to rest and have some family time until the New Year! 

In this issue, we feature one- and two-hour projects that make perfect gifts

Quick Tip

Beaded Gift Bag Closure

A Japanese exchange student showed us this quick, easy and elegant gift bag fastener.

Felted Needle Holder or Hook Book!

Are you tired of looking in your stash and having a hard time finding the right size hook or the other one of a pair of needles you need -- when you KNOW you have it?

We made this easy felted holder to solve our storage problem.  Naturally, the version for needles is knitted while the one for hooks is crocheted.  We LOVE the result and we think you will too.

When not in use, it rolls up tidily.

Great for yourself or for a gift!

Ssssssssssssid the draft-dodger   

Diamond-Back Draft Dodger

Got a leaky window?

Not good, this time of year!

We've got a solution -- and a little bit of a knitting challenge, too!  Make this handy (and cute!) snake to lie on a window sill and guard you from drips and drafts.

The diamond pattern is easy to do and is a super project for learning intarsia color changing.

Sssssssssid protects you against drafts!

Your cat can celebrate the holidays too with one of these fun, new easy-to-knit catnip toys.

Family of Beanies to Crochet
(yes, for men, too!)

Last month, we offered our knit spirit beanie.   So many of you asked for a crochet version and versions in men's and children's sizes that we did a crochet pattern for a whole family of beanies -- one for every person on your list!

Using beautiful Wool-Ease Thick & Quick, it makes up in about an hour.
