With all of the activities that come along with the holiday season, you may not have had the time to keep up with all of the delightful patterns that were released in December. Here's a rundown of just some of our favorites!

The Granny Square Blanket from Miriam Felton can help you knock off a number of your New Year's Resolutions - using up stash, learning to knit or crochet (you'll need both!), and working on your color play!

The Geometry Shawl by Nina Machlin Dayton uses just a bit of worsted yarn to add a striking line of contrast to a fingering-weight shawl.

This diaphanous Nimbus shawl was created by ArtQualia Designs. Knit in Milky Way, the shawl has glittering beads worked into the lace, representing the raindrops that accompany Nimbus clouds.
