When it comes to buy prezzies for knitters, the obvious option is always to get them a selection of yarns, however there are plenty of non-yarn related things that would equally win the heart of your crafty friends and relatives. Here is a selection of four of our favourites items.
Give the gift of laughter with the Woollelujah! bag by the Fringe Supply Co. Made in the USA with 100% cotton canvas, this sturdy bag is beautifully finished and comes it two different shades; black and blue. Being 23″ wide x 13″ high x 9″ deep, it is much bigger that the average tote bag and could easily fit several projects at once. Obviously the Woolelujah! bag isn’t limited to just carrying your knitting gear, it is also the perfect size to carry your food shopping or head to the beach (maybe not right now!). For Christmas, no doubt your wool-addicted beloved would appreciate the pun as much as the gesture.
In the same spirit we would also suggest those colourful tea towels by Tillyflop bearing the message ‘Oh how I’d rather be knitting!’ or ‘Oh how I’d rather be crocheting!’. I am sure every keen knitter and crocheter would agree, when fatally stuck into house duties of some sort, there is nothing we wish more than hiding away with our needles and hooks, and a comforting cup of tea. Plus these towels have a great graphic quality to them and would bring a nice touch of colour to any kitchen.
For knitters avid of making socks, lace or any other meticulous projects, the Twist Mini needle set by Chiaogoo would definitely hit the spot. It includes;
• 5 pairs of mini tips from 1.50 mm to 2.50 mm of diameter
• 3 cables of 35, 55 and 75 cm long
• 2 cable connectors
• 2 end stoppers
• 6 Stitch Markers
• Needle gauge/ruler
• 2 keys
• Heart-shaped rubber gripper
Needles and accessories are contained into a small compact case and a sleeve with labelled pockets to keep the needles secure. We also stock similar set in size Small, Large and a complete one that includes the three sizes altogether.
Last but not least, a wool winder! Free knitters of their entourage and the hassle of winding their precious skeins of yarn by hand! We have all done it, and we all know how painfully painstaking it is to sit down with your skein around your knees, watching your ball slowly coming together, when all you really want to do is knitting. So if you know some unfortunate knitter deprived of a wool winder, believe me this would change their life for the better. Available in store only.
I hope this has given you some ideas for your Christmas shopping, and do not hesitate to contact us if you have have any questions.
Until Next Time… Happy Knitting!
