Are you looking for a gift for the knitter or crocheter in your life, but you don’t know a thing about yarn and are worried that you might get them the wrong thing? I’m here to help you!
Mugs: Chances are good that your yarn lover also loves tea or coffee (or both). How about a mug that reflects their hobby choices? From mugs with knitted cabled designs, to mugs with crocheted doily designs, to mugs that look like little balls of yarn… there is going to be something here your yarn lover will love!
One-of-a-kind colorways: Yarn lovers are collectors. We don’t like to admit it, but… just look at the size of some of our stashes. We’re collecting it to use later! And like many collectors of other genres (books, art, custom cars) yarn lovers love to get things nobody else has… like one of a kind colorways!
Soap: Whether it’s to use every day, or as special hand soap by the sink, or even just to keep in a project bag to make their yarn smell good, your yarn lover is going to love soap decorated with a skein of yarn and a pair of knitting needles. Available in dozens of fun fragrances!
Stitch Markers: Stitch markers are used either to mark space in between pattern repeats, or to help count rows – either way, they are invaluable for helping to keep track of where you are in your pattern.
Yarn Club: Give a gift that gives for three months at a time – a yarn club! This round of yarn club ships in January, February, and March, and with a theme inspired by Star Wars, is the perfect gift for your nerdy yarn lover.
These are a great place to start. If you’re still unsure, there’s always a gift certificate, or you can drop me a line and ask for recommendations – I’m always happy to help someone pick out the perfect gift!
