Happy Thanksgiving November 25, 2009

It’s getting to be that most wonderful time of the year…

And over at Studio Chic we’ll be grabbing a nice piece of pumpkin pie and heading to our easy chair to start a little Holiday Knitting!

Whether you live in the cold zone or happy south, we’ve got some toppers that are sure to please.

Made with popular worsted and aran gauges, they go fast, look good and just might bring a smile to somebody special.

And don’t forget that maybe your wardrobe needs a little jump start — make one of these great hip designs for your holidaze


We’d like to THANK YOU for being a chic knitter with us!

We have a couple of skeins of CLASSY from our friends at Dream in Color that we’d like to share with you —

These are the lovely colors used in the Mondo Cable garments this fall and they are FAB and perfect for all the hats you see above. (At left, Cocoa Kiss, at right Cloud Jungle.)

Leave a comment below to enter a drawing for one skein of yarn and the Chic Knits hat pattern of your choice…

Two winners chosen by random drawing Tuesday 12/01/09.
