Do you get bogged down with Holiday craziness? Do you find yourself wishing for a project that you could find some peace with for just 15 minutes during the rush? Why not knit up a “last minute Stocking stuffer” or even just a fun little Holiday gift for yourself, that can also be a 15-minutes a day Sanity Savor for you during the busiest time of the year? I aim to bring you joy and smiles, and this project is sure to deliver!
I am super excited about this collaboration with The Fiber Seed (it’s been a long time in the making!) I have paired their Holiday color, “The Giving Tree” with a cute Holiday knit that is guaranteed to make you giggle with glee! It’s a Holiday project, that ends up being a fun decoration for you ( or it could work as a last-minute stocking stuffer!)

Hint: It’s a toy! (but, no worries, it is a seamless toy, so all pieces are worked form held stitches, or from waste yarn, no seaming, and no sewing teeny tiny body parts here).

Pattern uses The Fiber Seed Sprout, a Fingering weight yarn, 480 yards per skein. I held the yarn doubled for this project, so it knits a little faster, and the fabric is a little denser.

Basic skills needed are: Knitting, knitting in the round, working a k1f&b, and how to knit to waste yarn, and then switch to working yarn (not super difficult and I am happy to talk you through it, I think this is a great project to learn this new skill, so I’m happy to help!)

Supplies: Yarn, needles for gauge, stuffing, and black embroidery thread.

The main thing: Have fun! DON’T SPOIL THE SURPRISE!
