Mother's Day is coming soon. It's never too early to get ready. You do not want to be running around trying to find a last minute mother's day gift. One of the easiest ways to find a thoughtful gift for your mother is to think about her favorite past times. Lots of mothers knit, some mothers are outright obsessed with knitting. If you were dressed head to toe in handknits, your mom or grandma must have been an obsessed knitter. Lots of thought and love go into all of those hand knits. What better way to thank your mother or sister or grandmother or wife who loves to knit than with a thoughtful gift that enables them to knit even more?
Mother's Day Gifts for Knitters 2015
Malabrigo Yarn is hand dyed by a cooperative of women in South America. Each skein runs about 210 yards, which is enough for a hat, but you could by 2 skeins and have enough for a scarf or shawl. If you wanted to make a sweater, you would need at least 6 skeins.
Renowned knitting pattern designer Amy Herzog is back again with knitting patterns mean to complement just about any body. This follow up to Fit to Flatter will inspire your knitter to improve their skills and create a whole wardrobe of new handknitted clothes and accessories.
This looks like some sort of crazy invention from the early 20th century, but it's actually something as mundane as a yarn swift, which allows knitters to place a skein of yarn to be spun into a ball using a ball winder (see below). Make sure you buy a winder to go with the swift or else your knitter will have to wind the yarn by hand.
The Ball Winder does just what it says, it winds balls of yarn, best used with the swift (above), it's the fastest way to wind a skein of yarn in to a ball.
A set of interchangeable knitting needles will always make a knitter smile. They are some of the fanciest gifts that you can find for a knitter and oftentimes knitters won't buy them for themselves.
