It’s already cold enough most mornings here in Leelanau County to say, “If I only had a hat to pull on right now. Something simple to knit, not too fussy but a little interesting to work on in the evenings, a hat that anyone in the house could wear, kind of neutral to go with any of my coats, just the thing to mask bed head while dropping off the kids at school….” We think this simple cabled hat fits the bill. (Especially because there’s cashmere in the yarn!) An added bonus? It’s quick enough to knit in a weekend. And it looks good on everyone, whether you’re cross- country skiing or crossing campus to get to class.

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!)
