HOLIDAY GIFT MUST-KNIT # 6 – 9

2 SKEINS = 4 PROJECTS
It’s go time! Thanksgiving is 2 weeks away, so it’s last call for making those holiday gifts. Go big or go home.
The next 4 projects use just 2 skeins of Cascade Ecological Wool. That’s right, 2 skeins and 4 magnificent handmade gifts. I will be highlighting each project this week, one at a time.

The yarn is one of my favorites–Cascade Ecological Wool. It comes in these giant 478-yard skeins. At $20 / skein, that’s a thrifty $10 / project. The natural colors are really beautiful–I used ecru and mocha which can be purchased by clicking on “Cascade Eco+ & Ecological Wool Yarn” link:
