So you're running out of time to knit and crochet for holiday gifts, but you knew that right? Well, just in case you're looking for some unique ideas, I've found some for you. I'm not even sure how to file some of these, so I'll let you decide which one is the most...ahem...unique.
Giddyup! Pony Hood by Naughty Needles
Knitted Naughty Parts
Yes, if you haven't noticed yet, Ravelry has a "mature content" section, which, upon reflection, is a kind of funny name. Especially when you see things like the Knitted Vulva. Bonus, the clitoris is knitted in glow in the dark yarn. Great idea for that leftover glow-in-the-dark yarn you have laying around.
I didn't call it "ugly." It's named that. For a reason. Who wouldn't want to wake up and see this on her teapot? Sadly this item is sold out at Etsy, so you may have to improvise or have the designer (rosiecosie) make one for you.
Maybe having your worst fears beautifully crafted into a cuddly crocheted gift could be a kind of therapy? Maybe not.
Knitted Wine Glass Holder
Okay, well this one could be really pretty useful, right? You know you want one. Here's the pattern on Ravelry so you can cast on, right now. It's a free download, pattern by Claudia Olson.
A Baby Doll
Dolls are classic Christmas gifts, right? But, dolls can be like clowns. They are supposed to delight and amuse, but sometimes, something... happens to the doll, and it's not quite so cute anymore. Just my opinion, of course. This pattern is €6.99 on Ravelry by cleoscrochetart, and if you make it, please send photos.
Pet Torture, um, I mean Costumes
I am tempted to dress my cat in the occasional Santa hat, so I won't throw stones. I cannot imagine these earwarmers staying in place very long. The site is in Japanese though, so you'll have to improvise your own pattern.
For the Knitter Who Has it All
The 2014 Men in Knitwear calendar club by Stitch Seekers, $15 on Ravelry. Sure, 2014 is over, but the patterns last forever. Mr. September is sporting some nice socks, huh? We could joke about whether or not he wears anything under his kilt, but... it doesn't look like he's wearing a kilt.
So what are you knitting next? If you go with any of these ideas, we want to know about it.
