Annual Holiday Gift List for Yarn Crafters
For the past few years, I’ve created a holiday gift list for yarn crafters. It can be used as my own personal wish-list. Or for suggestions for knitters, crocheters, spinners, etc. that you know.
Top-10 Holiday Gift List for Knitters, Crocheters, etc.
Hand-Turned Crochet Hook Set – Someone pointed these beauties out to me the other day.
It’s an interchangeable set of crochet hooks! Hand turned, ergonomic handle in beautiful wood.
2. Interesting Stitch Markers (promotional link)- Knitters can NEVER have enough stitch markers.
Or cases to keep stitch markers. Nice inexpensive gift for knitters.
3. Wooden Yarn Swift (promotional link) – I have two of these (medium and large) and I just love them.
They’ve come down a lot in price, so you may want to combine it with:
4. Jumbo Ball-Winder (promotional link) – Having a nice ball-winder makes starting a new project so much nicer.
These have come down SIGNIFICANTLY in price. I have a nicer one, but it’s also a lot more expensive.
5. Needle Kits – Obsessive knitters can never have enough needles, and so a nice interchangeable needle kit is always welcome.
I’ve recommended this one before. It’s the one I use almost exclusively, and I still think it’s a great gift.
6. Knitting Bag (promotional link) – Yarn crafters can never seem to get enough project bags.
You can definitely find really nice “designer” bags or less expensive everyday totes. Just make sure it doesn’t have velcro or anything else that might snag yarn!
7. Craft Books (promotional link)- Finding a book that a yarn crafter wants, but might not necessarily spend the money for is the perfect gift idea. Here are two that I’d choose:
8. Display Bust/Mannequin (promotional link)- For blocking hats, sweaters, scarfs and for displaying them for social media photographs.
Not all of us have room for one of these, but they become incredibly handy.
9. Blocking Mats/Pins (promotional link) – For your knitting friends who are always using the guest bed to block their knitwear.
These pins work exceedingly well to block lengths of straight edges.
10. ChiaGoo Twist Shorties Set (promotional link) – This set is for the knitter who doesn’t like double-pointed needles or magic loop.
Knitters love theses short-tipped interchangeable needles. For sleeves, hats and other circular knitting projects where double-points would be annoying. They also come in smaller gauge needles as Twist Red Lace Minis US0 to US3 (2-3.25 mm) kits.
I’m very happy with my progress since Wednesday on the Primordial Sworl Wrap in lace-weight yarn.
I’ve completed 9 of the 10 pattern repeats, so just one more to go! The monochromatic, mottled-color yarn is starting to grow on my as I get closer to completing this project. It has an almost ostrich-skin-like look to it…no?
Well, in some lighting conditions it does. Can’t wait to see this one all blocked out and “lacy.”
