  • Favorite Holiday Gifts for Knitters 2014

    redknitkitThe holidays are upon us and if you're here you might be wondering what kind of fantastic holiday gift to get for a knitter this year. Perhaps you've been the recipient of one of your knitter's thoughtful hand made gifts and you want to return the favor. One thing you can always get a knitter is spoken appreciation of the gifts they have knit for you (and to wear them), but if you wish to take your appreciation to the next level, check out these holiday gifts for knitters that will no doubt thrill them for 2014.

     

     

    Tudor Roses

    Last year our favorite book for knitters was Kaffe Fassett's Dreaming in Color. This year it's Alice Starmore's updated Tudor Roses, which features knitting patterns inspired by Tudor England (and Henry the VII's many brides). It is a true test of a knitter for them to knit a Starmore design and it's something that every serious knitter should tackle in their lifetime. Tudor Roses is the book to help your knitter dream this year.

    Other books we recommend for knitter gifts: The Principles of Knitting, Knitting Nature, and Weekend Knitting. These are all classics that deserve a place in any knitter's library.

    knittingyarnsbook2Knitting Yarns - Writers on Knitting

    You won't just see professional knitters on the author list of this book. World famous writers such as Ann Pratchett and Barbara Kingsolver share their experiences knitting, some of them for the first time.

    Another Notions Kit

    We love the Knit Kit, it's the best knitting notions kit around, so portable and easy to pack (and TSA compliant!), but every knitter knows that you can never have too many knitting notions kits (they always seem to go missing at just the moment you need them). In case you're looking for something different this other beginning notions starter kit will ensure that your knitter always has tapestry needles, stitch holders, needle protectors and more.

     

     

     

    The Go-Knits Bag

    I know you must think it's crazy how many knitting bags a knitter can have, but the small project bags do in fact serve a very practical purpose. Project bags protect your knitting within a knitting bag. If you don't use a project bag, your project can become entangled with other projects, with your knitting notions, other yarns and all of your other everyday stuff that you carry in your knitting bag. This can create holes in your knitting, and rough up the yarn you're using.

    The Go Knits bags may seem pricey, but that's because they're super durable. Traditional cotton bags

    If you want a truly exquisite way of storing your knitting needles, you must try the Lanter Moon Silk Knitting Needle Case. They carry both straight and circular knitting needles and has a small zippered pocket for knitting notions. It's one of those gifts that makes a knitter feel special.

    As much as knitters love their yarn, they love it even more when they can knit with high quality knitting needles. The texture of a knitting needle can enhance the knitting experience and having a complete set of knitting needles ensures that a knitter has a set for every occasion. This year's big set of interchangeable knitting needles for the holidays are the Knitters Pride Karbonz. They have slick metal needle tips with space age carbon fiber bodies. This makes these needles slick, but not so slippery that your stitches fall off your needles.

    If you wrap a few of these gifts for knitters together and create a little knitting gift basket your knitter will be blown over with useful luxury knitting gifts that will keep him or her knitting for years to come.

    Any knitter would be happy with a new knitting bag every year at the holidays and 2014 is no different. Knitting bags make a great base to start a crazy awesome knitting gift -add in some yarn and a set of interchangeable knitting needles and the knitter you love will swoon!

    Our favorite knitting bags are the Bagsmith Bag and any bag from Namaste (the one at left is the Poppins in Turquoise, you can also find it in Eggplant, here). They are heavy-duty and designed with knitters in mind, making it easy to store and find their favorite knitting notions and keeping their yarn untangled.

    You may have noticed that your knitter has a lot of knitting needles. With multiple projects sometimes you do need to have multiple sets of size 7 knitting needles, not to mention circular sets and double pointed needles. You would be wrong to think that just a set of straight knitting needles would be enough for a knitter. Multiple knitting needle cases help your knitter stay organized, that's for sure.
