Happy Holidays, everyone! To celebrate, Little Knits is featuring 12 days of little sales every day until Christmas! To kick it off, today we have Mirasol Samp’a, Akapana, and Hapi; and Crystal Palace Taos and Merino Stripes on sale! Check out the links for colors and sale prices.
I’m loving the Hapi, a thick and thin, super soft, worsted cotton. It knits or crochets wonderfully for soft accessories or lighter-weight garments. (Sometimes, we’re too warm for wool!) It drapes nicely and comes in some great colors. I love the Spring Green, and the Sky is a perfectly bright, rich blue color. See the full line here: Mirasol Hapi. Here are a few projects I’m planning with the hapi:
I’ve had my eye on the Schwaan pullover by Norah Gaughan for a while, and the Hapi would be perfect for it. Who says it has to be a summer pullover? Knit it out of the Beige , Forest Green, or Cinnabar and it would be a great all-season layer. If you want to stick to Norah’s color pallate, the Sky Blue or Light Blue would be lovely. The pattern is in Norah Gaughan 8 available from Little Knits!
I am utterly in love with this adorable hat by Adela Illichmanova. It is available via a Ravelry Download here. I’m planning on making it with a couple different colors of blue. Maybe the navy and a light blue? The hat will take just two, and an evening. There’s still time to make a few for Christmas!
Another great Christmas idea I love is these adorable Bunny Sachets. You could make at least two per skein of Hapi, stuff them with some lavender and or catnip and you have a great last minute gift! Pattern is available here on Ravelry. If you’re making a pet present, be sure to use stitching and not buttons for the face!
Hapi would make wonderful children’s clothing. It’s super soft and comes in some good kid colors. This is one my all time favorite baby sweaters. It’s simple, but has great details. it’s a simple knits, but the combination of garter and stockinette keeps you knitting. It comes in sizes 3 months – 4 years, and the pattern is in Interweave Knits Winter 2011, which is available at Little Knits!
Hope you all have a great start on your Holiday Knitting and Crochet! Check back for more of our 12 Days of Christmas Sales!
