Do you find yourself in the Fire Swamp of last minute crafting? Maybe due to procrastination or an innate ability to have a perpetual positive outlook on your ability to bend the space time continuum?
Fret not, here is Procrasti Nation: Quick projects for the last minute crafter, a collection of patterns that can help you out of that sticky situation of needing a last minute hand made gift. Something cozy and warm, stylish and modern, infinitely wearable and lightning fast to knit up!

Procrastination is a quick cowl knit in only 90 yards of super bulky soft as a dream Malabrigo Rasta.
Knit in the round with an easy slip stitch pattern that waves back and forth, mimicking my mind in a state of procrastination: Going between ‘it will be totally fine, let me knit a little bit’ and ‘oh nooooo, oh my, oh my, I am sooo screwed and out of time, I will never get it all done’
It’s knit in the round to take you full circle back to that happy place of infinite time and ability, and before you know it, the cowl is done!
