Feeling festive?? Looking for a few last minute gift ideas to knit? Check in weekly right here at the Diamond Yarn Blog from now until Christmas for the latest in budget friendly projects, to sashay across your needles before old St. Nick does his shimmy down the chimney.
This week’s festive project will add bright holiday cheer, knit in a very simple two-sided lace design. One ball of Party Angel, in whispery soft kid mohair swirled with silk and frosted with a filament of glitter, is a little splash of luxury for someone special on your list.
