Vancouver, Washington- The holiday season will be here before you know it, and Knit Picks’ new Tidings of Joy ornament kit is guaranteed to put any knitter in a giving mood this year.

The Tidings of Joy kit includes twenty-two easy-to-follow ornament patterns ranging from traditional to whimsical along with eight balls of our 100% Peruvian Wool “Palette” yarn. Since one kit costs only $19.99 and makes at least twenty-five finished ornaments, it’s easy to make a thoughtful, handmade gift for everyone on your shopping list without breaking your budget.

So what patterns are in the kit? Of course there are patterns for classics like teeny stockings, scarves, and hats, and tiny Fair Isle balls adorned with reindeer and snowflakes, plus mini sweaters that can double as gift card holders. But why not get into the holiday spirit with hand knit holly, Christmas lights, or a traditional knit Christmas pickle? Or, cut back on calories with knit peppermints, candy canes, and sugar plums. All of these cute little ornaments are so fun and quick to knit that you’ll have visions of red, white, and green elves and hand knit popcorn garlands dancing in your head from now until New Year’s!

In addition to the Tidings of Joy kit, Knit Picks web site will be packed by mid-August with other great gift ideas whether you’re knitting all your presents this year, shopping for a knitter on your gift list, or even giving the gift of knitting itself to a friend or family member with one of our new Learn to Knit Kits.
