Well, here we are again....The Twelve Knits of Christmas! Twelve weeks from Sunday is December 25th. In other words, D-Day for creators everywhere--the day we bring our "A-game" to the people we love by presenting them with handmade gifts. If you're new to our email newsletter, welcome! And for those of you who've been with us since the beginning (this'll be Year Four, in fact!),
let the wild ride begin....
At Wool & Honey, we believe that the best way to celebrate the holidays is with a handcrafted gift. Something special--a little slip of a silk scarf, a pair of fuzzy, wooly mitts, a handknit ornament--that with a little time, a little money and a little foresight could become the most treasured gift you give all year.
Every Friday, you'll receive an email revealing a special pattern we've written exclusively for the shop--one that can easily be tackled within the course of a week. (With a little effort, of course--these projects don't knit themselves!) These patterns are super simple, even for beginner knitters. We make it that way because we realize that in addition to your knitting, there's a good chance you've got a few other things to tend to between now and the holidays. (Ahem!) Knitting should be fun, not work. And certainly not stressful. Most of these projects are One-Skein Wonders-a pretty fantastic way to see light at the end of the knitting tunnel, even when you're elbow-deep in cookie dough. With 12 full weeks ahead of us, if you pace yourself and try your best to keep up, you'll have a nice collection of gifts come December 25th.
Good luck, friends!

This year, just like last year, there are several ways to knit for everyone on your list. The Twelve Knits are being sold as kits--kits complete with yarn, pattern and a Wool & Honey project bag, with the option of adding needles if you need them. You can purchase one for delivery right to your doorstep or you can reserve one for pick-up at the shop.
And for those of you who've got a mountain of stash to knit through, we're offering a pattern-only option as well. Within 24 hours of your purchase, your pattern will be e-mailed to you in an easy-to-read PDF format that you can save and print as many times as you'd like.
This year, we're thrilled to be selling The Twelve Knits on our shiny new website,
Take a peek around while you're shopping--there's a pretty good chance you'll find something you like!
