Holiday Project Ideas

Our favorite suggestions . . .
The school buses are on the road, the swimming pools are closing for the year - fall is almost here and it's time to start thinking about your holiday projects!  We now have 6,861 Ravelry patterns available on our site.  It's great to have so many potential projects to choose from . . . but it can also be overwhelming to have to many projects to choose from!  Where do you even begin?

Well, we got that figured out for you . . . Here are some suggestions!

Go to our Holiday Project Ideas page.  We have shawls, toys, babies, hats, cowls, socks, mittens and scarfs winnowed down to a manageable number of favorites.  Scroll through our recommendations, or add your own additional criteria to whittle it down even more.  We also have yarn suggestions next to each category.

If you like wide open spaces and endless possibilities, go to our E-Pattern Search Page.  Type in your search criteria, and go!  Search based on any combination of category, yarn weight, needle size, difficulty, designer or a specific yarn.  You can be as broad or as specific as you want, and you can change your criteria as you go along.

Many of our online patterns have yarn suggestions listed on the bottom of the page.  Our yarn experts make suggestions by reviewing each pattern one-by-one.  So . . . they're not all done yet.  But if there isn't a yarn recommendation on a pattern you like feel free to give us a call or send an e-mail for yarn suggestions.

If you prefer the feel of a good old-fashioned pattern book, come into our store.  Our FiberWild! designed patterns are organized into pattern books.  You can sit down at our table and leisurely flip through the pages of each one to find the perfect pattern for you.  When you find the pattern you like, Debra, Karen or I will be happy to help you find the perfect yarn.

I like the excitement of picking a pattern and a yarn for a new project.  I want your pattern selection to be a fun adventure, not stressful and overwhelming.  If you need some help please let us know!

Happy (and stress-free) Knitting . . . . Amy
