Here’s a last-minute gift idea, especially for that impossible-to-buy-for woman: a one-of-a-kind Knittique sample! These are the pieces I design and make in the process of creating my original knitwear patterns for Knittique; each is made with 1 or more of my own Scraplet Skeins, which are one-of-a-kind skeins I create by hand-tying multiple strands of yarn together to form a color sequence within each skein. (The skeins and patterns are also available in Knittique’s Etsy shop.)
Included in my sample sale collection are capelets, wraps, and pillow covers, and right now, I’m adding more at least once per day! And because they’ve all been very gently used— meaning tried on occasionally in yarn store trunk shows, and modeled for photography, including on Lola the Mannequin— I’m offering each of these truly unique samples at ridiculously great prices!
Here are just two of these extraordinary samples:
Oh, and hurry, because now through December 15, I will happily ship any sample purchase (from the Sample Sale section of my Etsy shop) to you via Priority Mail absolutely FREE! (This applies only to shipments within the continental U.S., but I will discount shipping to other locations.)
Happy shopping, and the happiest of holidays to all!

I just visited your shop, saw the neutral scarf and… Ahhh, I wish I lived somewhere where a scarf wouldn’t be insane. It’s so pretty!

Actually, I’ve been thinking about doing some skeins (and scarves) for warm climates; there’s not so much variety in the summery fibers, but I can at least make pretty color sequences! If you’re in a place where the hot days turn to cool nights, a scarf or shawl can be a good idea. (It gets to 100 regularly here in summer, but drops into the 50s most nights.) thanks do much for visiting my shop!!

I think that’s a great idea! I’m in Southern California, so the nights do get cool… being so close to the ocean. Still though, a scarf that isn’t just light and fluffy always seems like overkill. A “summer scarf” would be great. 😀
