I thought I would get us started for the month. I just finished this the other day. If you are looking for a VERY quick, lovely gift I would definately recommend this. Yes, it is an afghan/lap quilt, but the pattern calls for bulky yarn--Ecological Wool by Cascade--and knits up SOO fast. Literally two weeks just working on it here and there.
Designer: Brooklyn Tweed
Pattern location: Ravelry
Yarn Used: KnitPicks Bare Swish Bulky--superwash wool
Yardage: About 600 to 900 yards depending on how large you want it to get.
Needles: US Size 10--36" circulars and dpns
Someone is going to be very happy with their Christmas present :o)
Happy knitting everyone.
