Your Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Knitters—Part 2
I hope you enjoyed the gift ideas in my last blog post! Now I’m back with even more gift suggestions for your fellow knitter friends. I’ve put together another list of fantastic items from some of the amazing people I’ve worked with, and from some of the stores I love to frequent. And of course, if you’ve got people asking you want YOU want, go ahead and send them your favorites from the list. Alright, let’s get straight into these goodies!
Who can say no to more project bags? Not me!
Let me tell you, one project bag is not going to satisfy a knitter. We love project bags because they’re great for keeping our stuff in order and for traveling purposes. Whether you’re a newbie or an experienced knitter, I suggest that you have a collection of bags to choose from for different projects. You’ll need one with enough pockets to organize your tools, a mini bag to have on the go, and a larger bag to accommodate multiple projects (or yarns) and tools. Check out some cool bag selections below:
This project bag from Knot Another Hat deserves your attention!
The bag measures 8″ in diameter, 9″ tall, and features a cinch-close top and bucket handle. You can fit 3-6 skeins in it (so it’s nice for your colorwork projects), and you’ll find that you can easily keep things organized with the surrounding exterior pockets and three internal pockets.
Looking for more? Go on and pair it with their adorable matching zippered notion cases. Learn more »
You know me, I LOVE to travel with knitting projects and knit the memories into my works. I have several travel-size bags that allow me to just grab and go, so I can knit anywhere.
Don’t miss out on this project pouch selling on Sow’s Ear! It’s a great companion for your commute. There is ample room for yarn and tools. Plus, there’s also pockets for your needles, notebook, and phone inside the bag. The best thing is that the interior also has small eyelets you can pull the yarn through to help keep them untangled.

These gorgeous hand screen-printed totes featuring images of Long Island Yarn and Farm‘s llamas have two sizes to choose from—6x16x17 and 4x10x12. If you are looking for a gift for your fellow knitter who is a multitasker and usually works on several projects at once, the large totes will be a great fit. These cute llamas will definitely brighten their day! It’s a nice statement piece.
