It’s getting down to the wire for holiday knitting, so now might be the time to start thinking about knitting projects where the knitting is just part of the gift. For example, give a nice bottle of wine or olive oil and knit a bag to put it in.
The person who gets the gift can use the bottle of whatever and keep the bag to use when transporting bottles, or regift it when they give someone a bottle of wine.
This bottle gift bag from Classic Elite is nice because it’s a little fancier than a plain stockinette stitch bag but is still useful as insulation when transporting a glass bottle.
