It’s June! Less than six months until Christmas. Yikes! The only way to stick to a commitment of giving handmade is to start early and keep things easy. And that’s where this book comes in handy. Sixth & Spring generously sent me a review copy of 50 Garter Stitch Gifts To Knit. I don’t often accept offers like this. There just doesn’t seem to be enough time to do it right.I said “yes” to this one because of the “quick & easy” part. I can make use of that. In fact, I managed to make a project from the book in between all the busyness! I chose the striped pillow and whipped up a 14″ version in deep Full O’ Sheep yarn. It just needs the companion chevron pillow for a complete pair.With 50 different garter stitch projects, you’re bound to find something for more than one person on your list. You may even want to make yourself something. Personally, I have my eye on the Wavy Drop Stitch Scarf.So if you’re trying to stay ahead of the game this year, consider making it easier on yourself and keep things simple.
