Here are four items I have for you this year:
1. A Scarf
This scarf is just like one currently in my store. It's a perfect flirty scarf for mild weather, and it's fun to wear because the elongated stitches give it great drape.
The scarf is crocheted from multiple strands of threads in different textures. One fat strand is rayon in a pretty silvery blue. The second two strands are pink raw silk. One is teeny and one is thicker with luscious pink slubs. A final two-ply strand with half cotton and half rayon in a dark and a medium blue, adds visual depth of color.
4" wide by 58" long. Hand wash in cool water with a silk-friendly product and dry flat or dry clean.
2. Some Hand-spun Color Twist Yarn
This yarn was handspun by me out of 100% wool. Firmly spun and good for knitters or crocheters. The base color runs between teal and peacock blue and is highlighted with colors of the rainbow. Approximately 115 yards measuring 12-14 wpi. (DK to worsted weight)
3. A Knitter's Pint Glass
This is the perfect vessel for your beverage of choice. Use it while you knit and feel more official, or playful, or giddy, depending on what you're drinking. Can also be used by crocheters.
This engraved pint glass is the creation of Amanda and Sean of Bread and Badger. I got some of their glasses at the Show of Awesome last month, but you can find their wares on Etsy by following the link.
4. A Book of Inspiration
Annie Modesitt's book has ten winning hat patterns and photos of 990 other hats! It's a great coffee table book. Crocheters could also get inspired by these photos. The book contains two of my hat designs for which patterns are in development: A Simple Pillbox Confection and Darky, Seedy & Twisted. After test knitting and tech editing is done, I'll put them on Ravelry for sale.
