Knitter’s Gift Guide

Written by Sarah on November 25th, 2013 Posted in gift, holiday

Shopping for knitters is simultaneously the easiest and hardest thing to do. We love yarn but we’re very particular. We could always use more needles but interchangeable sets aren’t cheap. We’re always searching for new patterns but with the enormous variety of books out there, it’s tough to pinpoint which might be right.

I tend to advise against buying a knitter yarn (unless they ask for it) as a gift. Usually, we’re all on yarn diets. Of course, no one has ever given me a skein of yarn that I’ve refused. And it’s easy for non-knitters to become sheepish, dizzy, and dumbfounded at a LYS. But around this time of year I like to put together a guide for what knitters really want, those little things that will let them know that you really thought hard about them.

1. Yarn Pyramid print from Fringe Supply Co.
2. Pebble tape measures from Leif

And, don’t forget, knitters always appreciate gifts that are handmade, local, and/or independent!

What gifts would you love to get this holiday?
