Even though it would take the hottest of summer days for most of you to relinquish your knitting needles, there are still a select few people who consider knitting a winter-only activity. (Gasp!) We think you’ll make an exception with this week’s pattern. Knit in the brand new Quince & Co. Willet, this sweater is for the tiny person on your Christmas list. (Or now. You can knit it--and give it--now.) Willet is a brilliant new collaboration between Quince & Co. and California cotton growers--it’s a 100% USA grown, spun and dyed cotton….and it’s ecologically responsible, to boot. Soft, drapey and eco-friendly, Willet is the perfect choice for baby sweaters. We’ve knit ours in the classic Breton stripe combo of navy blue and white for the quintessential boating sweater, just in miniature. Because it’s never too early to build a wardrobe of classics.

About The 12 Knits of Christmas

One of the greatest gifts we have as knitters is to spend a little time every day with our tools, our minds, our hands, some quiet and make. Making a tiny sweater for the first grandchild that’s growing inside your daughter’s belly. Making a pair of mittens to keep your best friend’s hands warm out on the cross-country ski trail. Making a sweater for the guy who finally gave you that ring.

Without question, our 12 Knits of Christmas is the best it’s ever been. The focus is on gifts that you’ll be ecstatic to give, whether it’s because they’re knit with yarn you’ve never seen before (they are), they all require less than two weeks to complete (they do) or because they’re fresh takes on classic knitted gifts (they will be).

We’ll also be giving away six outrageous prizes to six very lucky knitters.

1.) For each ambitious customer who purchases ALL 12 kits, you’ll be entered into a drawing to win a $250 gift certificate to Wool & Honey, either in-house or online.

2.) For each kit ordered, you’ll be entered into a separate drawing for one of three (3) $25 gift certificates, two (2) $50 gift certificates and one (1) $100 gift certificate to Wool & Honey, either in-house or online. (Ordering 3 of the same kit? That counts as 3 entries!)
