Your Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Knitters—Part 1
Hey early bird shoppers! It’s your time to plan ahead to avoid shipping delays and stock issues. Like our tradition, this year I also rounded up my favorite holiday gift ideas for you, so you can get started shopping for your fellow knitters sooner than later, and ensure your gifts arrive at the perfect timing. Which means it’s SHOPPING time!
Check out these gift ideas that will make the holiday season memorable to your loved ones who knit!
Our first love? Yarn!
Yarn, yarn, and yarn. Who can say “no” to more yarn? Here is a list including my favorite yarn stores. Click them through and I bet you can find your dream yarn as a gift and…for yourself!
Next? Choose useful tools they’ll get lots of use out of.
Looking for knitting tools for your fellow knitters, and want to surprise them in the right way? These are the tools I enjoy. You can’t go wrong with any of these picks!
Kraft Caddy by Cocoknits
No matter whether you are looking for a gift for a novice or an experienced knitter, organizers, totes, and project bags can’t go wrong.
This project bag from Cocoknits is made of washable kraft fabric, making it stiff enough to sit upright at your desk. Plus the center is designed wide open for bigger items. It’s great to keep it on a shelf or desk as a storage bin without handles, or you can add leather handles (sold separately) to grab it for travel.
A beautiful pair of antique scissors brings more joy than simple plastic yarn snips can give you. We all know, knitting is not just putting your work down; it is about the experience and the process of calming. Etsy and Amazon have a bunch of choices for antique scissors with gorgeous details. Why not pick one that has unique patterns as a gift?
Portable Handheld Garment Steamer
We all want to get wrinkles out of our knitting projects. This portable fabric wrinkle-remover is a life saver. It’s safe to use on all fabrics and can be ready to steam in 30 seconds or less. And the size is perfect to store and travel friendly.
Lighting is important, we all need to see better. I am TRULY a huge fan of Stella Lighting and really believe in their products. They provide a bunch of personalized lighting solutions, so you can choose based on your needs. If you are looking to replace that old dim lamp, check this brand out and you won’t be disappointed!
Need more ideas? How about inviting your fellow knitters to take classes together?
Knitting with others will bring more happiness. Sharing knitting experiences and conversations is a great way to bond. Invite your loved ones who knit to take my newest video sweater class, Charade Brioche, together! It’s a class for knitters at all levels. Follow the schedule for those who want to knit together, or take it any time if your knitting cohort wants to save it for a later date. It will be a great shared experience, in which you can encourage each other as you work through the pattern together. Take a look and sign up with your fellow knitters as a special gift for both of you.

Do you have a class in brioche that involves a smaller project rather than a sweater?
I will be launching a Brioche class this spring with a series of accessories to build your skills. Wristers, a hat and a scarf.
