Christmas Special by Jean Greenhowe (give-away)

In this part of the world the days are becoming shorter and cooler – so I had the first thoughts about the next season.

I know that some knitters have already been working on their Christmas presents and decorations, which made me think of this cute booklet by Jean Greenhowe: Christmas Special.

I am giving away an unused copy – it’s very simple to participate: just leave a comment on this post by Saturday 30th August! The winner will be randomly selected. 

Christmas Special contains many knitted patterns for the Christmas season (but not only). Below is a gallery of images covering some of the patterns.

    I love them all but I would make the log first. We always had a log when I was a child so it reminds me of lovely times when a ten shilling note was a fortune!

      Thank you!
      Childhood memories… so sweet…
      I remember when we used to put up the real Christmas tree with glass decorations & lights, and time spent with relatives

  2. It is still balmy hot in Cincnnati and looking at the seasonal images for fall and winter makes me sooo happy!! I love these cozy retro images and those tea cozies really are singing a song ♬♬♬

      Thank you!
      I also found myself thinking of the colder days to come and all the nice things coming with the festive season (and not only!)
      And the tea cups to be drunk, of course 🙂
      hugs ❤

    Thats a lovely Christmas book! It will keep every knitter well busy! I love that little round robin, tea cozies and the stockings especially!
    To be honest, the more I wander around the blogs, the more nerovous I become – people are starting to create Christmas stuff already and I havent even thought about it yet!
    Would love to make it with the julekuler advent calendar this year!

    nice to see you blogging again, welcome back.

      Thanks 🙂
      I think the tea cosies may be the most popular item, they’re so cute.
      By the way, I LOVED your recent post on the Knitting Scandinavian Style book! Obviously that book must have distracted your attention from any Christmas preparations and focus it on the Nordic items… it has so many beautiful patterns…. may have to get the book soon 🙂
      Thanks for visiting and your nice words ❤

  5. Ooooh, very difficult to choose. I love the tea cosies, both robins, and I think Cinderalla would make a perfect for a little girl.
