Today marks the first snow of the season here at the Love of Knitting and Love of Crochet office! While we’ll miss the warm days of summer, this early snow has us thinking about the holidays. Love of Knitting’s Holiday Knits 2014 Issue hits newsstands on September 23rd, and some of us have started planning our holiday crafting.
The dusting of snow on the ground also has us thinking of snowmen! Do you want to build a snowman? Our sister publication, Love of Quilting, is offering fun kits featuring all of your favorite characters from Frozen! I’ve dabbled in sewing, and I’ve been playing with the idea of making my first quilt. My daughter would jump for joy if I made her the Sisterly Love Quilt, so I may take the plunge and give quilting a try.
If you aren’t ready to take on a full quilt, Love of Quilting is also offering 3 no-sew blanket kits that would make wonderful gifts! I’m a big fan of the No-Sew Olaf Blanket, and the fleece is a dream to work with. It cuts without fraying and is incredibly warm, so it will be just the thing for the extra cold winter the forecasters are predicting.
Which blanket are you most excited about? Are you ready to give quilting a try, or are you leaning towards the quick and easy no-sew styles?
