An early Christmas present: a Wee Winter Whimsy

There's only a couple more days to go until Christmas and hopefully you're all well and truly organised with no reasons to leave the house now until the 27th.

Which would also likely mean that all your festive knitting is wrapped up prettily too, right? Wink, wink!

Just in case you have the stamina for a bit more Christmas knitting, we've got a little gift for you: Wee Winter Whimsy. This little sachet pattern can be knit up in about the same amount of time as a swatch from scraps that we all seem to keep tucked in our crafting spaces. A little bit of worsted-weight yarn, a small length of ribbon, and some sweet-smelling stuff are all you need to make up this sachet.

It's completely customisable too: why not use gloves or mulling spices for a festive scent? Herbes de Provence for your favourite chef (in which case the sachet becomes the sweetest little gift bag!), or cedar chips for the sachet to be stored with treasured knit.

Whatever you're knitting this holiday, we hope you have a wonderful time off with friends and family - and yarn, of course! We'll be back online in the new year, with lots of exciting plans to share with you.

Merry Christmas, and we'll see you in 2015!
