One has to be mildly amused at this magazine......Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts 2008.



You note the bit where it says "Fast & Easy Projects: Knitspiration for the Holidays."? Well, admire some of the projects that you too could just whip up in the approximately six weeks between now and Christmas.

A cable sweater for the (very large) man in your life.



A blanket,



A lace shawl.



And in the time you have left over, a tank top in 4-ply.



All images courtesy of Interweave Knits, of course.

Yes sure, I'm exaggerating. A bit. If you look at the full pattern list here there are lots of smaller projects, including some tree ornaments that you could knit several of in a night. But speaking as a knitter who barely manages to crank out a pair of socks and the sleeve of a sweater per month, the bigger ones seem...a touch ambitious? Christmas 2010, maybe!

(I did buy the mag, btw. Not only are some of the patterns really nice, it was the best laugh I've had in ages.)

BTW, enjoying your daily posts.

All the best

Is that a bare midriff I see in the shawl photo?
She obviously doesn't live in this neck of the woods where it's a little, well, breezy, sometimes.

ETA. The word verification thing actually says a WORD. A proper, un-Scrabbled word.

It says "repeat"... is this a subliminal message? I've never, ever seen it do that before.
