'Tis the season to be merry! Take a break from the holiday hustle and celebrate with your best yarny friends. Whether you have a regular Knit Night, a weekend Make Together, or a Craft Club, we're offering three fiber-themed party ideas to help you plan the ultimate, fiber-themed holiday get together.
Make the Spirits Bright
Host a cocktail party where the vibe is fiber animal chic! Stock the bar cart with our favorite fiber themed accessories, including Wild Llama Coasters, Llama Wine Charms, and our Knit 1 Sip 1 Koozies. Cheers to a great year of making and friendship while you make some No-Knit Wine Bottle Topper Hats.
Food + Drink: stock up on a few bottles of Sheep Thrills wine and build a goat cheese grazing board.
Project: Have everyone bring a toilet paper roll and some Worsted Weight yarn to make these No-Knit Wine Bottle Topper Hats. They're great for gifting!
Party Favor: Send your group home with a Knit 1 Sip 1 Koozie or a Beer Mug Stitch Marker.
The Holidays are Brewing
If your group is a bunch of early birds, treat yourselves to a coffee bar with all of the creamers, drizzles, and festive flair. Unwind with a cozy cup of Joe as you make Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeves together. These quick-knit accessories make great gifts - just pair with a coffee shop gift card or a bag of beans.
Food + Drink: Brew a pot of Knit Coffee or one of our favorite blends, Dancing Goats. Make these Baked Apple Cider Donuts, which pair perfectly.
Project: To make this coffee date special, have everyone bring a skein of Worsted Weight yarn and some size US 6 needles to knit their own Reusable Coffee Cup Sleeve.
Party Favor: Our Coffee and Donuts Marker Duo is the perfect reminder of your Coffee Crew.
Sweater Weather Cookie Party
Forget celebrating ugly sweaters (is there even such a thing?) and have a Sweater Weather Cookie Party instead. Invite your maker friends over for some sweater shaped sugar cookie decorating and because no party is long enough to knit an adult sweater, make a tiny one instead. Our Sweater on the Elf pattern isn't just for the Elf on the Shelf - you can make them into ornaments, garland, present toppers, or a holiday countdown calendar.
Food + Drink: Sweater shaped sugar cookies, of course (we have these cookie cutters). And major points if you apply the sweater theme to a cake like this one.
Project: Have your guests bring Sport Weight yarn and size US 2.5 needles to make a Sweater on the Elf.
Party Favor: These Stitched With Love tags are a thoughtful gift for any sweater knitter. But, too big to fit inside your tiny sweaters.
Our maker friends are some of our best friends. Make a plan to celebrate with each other in an unexpected and memorable way. Take a break from your usual routine and swap it for something fresh and festive! We'd love to hear how you and your maker friends celebrate over the holidays.
Getting ready to spend a weekend with some knitty friends abs picked up things for goodie bags from you. Love them
