Interweave Knits Holiday 2008

There are so many great projects in this issue of Interweave Knits Holiday Gifts! There are many small projects to keep us knitting for our loved ones, yet not break the pocketbook. Here are my top picks (not in any particular order):

Ribby Slipper Socks - made out of Blue Sky Alpaca Bulky & Worsted Hand Dyes. This is a great project for your parents, husband and kids. You’re looking at under $50 for this project.

Flying Trapeze Socks - generous sizes ranging from toddler’s to man’s sizes. The cabling on these socks makes it interesting to take on. The yarn is Louet Gems (fingering, sport or worsted; depending on the size you make). Price range on this project $18 - $28.

Frost Flowers Stole - This project has been ‘ooohed and aaaahed’ over by anyone who takes a peek! It’s a lace piece made of of of Jade Sapphire’s Silk/Cashmere. It takes 3 hanks of pure luxury. I’d be putting this on my wish list!

So, what projects have caught your eye?
