Valentine's day approaches once again and if you love a knitter you might be wondering what to get a knitter as a special treat? If you have ever received a handknitted gift from a knitter you know that a lot of love and care go into those knitted gifts. Knitters love it when they receive gifts that help them continue their obsession, I mean hobby. ;)
If you're not a knitter yourself it can be that extra bit more difficult to choose the right gift, but we have a few ideas that will make them happy this Valentine's Day.
Knitting bags are a favorite gift for knitters, especially if you want to do a little collection of knitting gifts. Pick one of these bags, choose some yarn, a knitting book and a set of interchangeable knitting needles and you will be going over the top for your knitter for Valentine's Day. Here are some of our favorite knitting bags in red in honor of the holiday:
This very affordable knitting bag is wide and roomy with plenty of room for one or more knitting projects, some knitting magazines and your knitting needles.
This is a most stylish knitting bag in red striped silk.
Yarn is always a welcome gift for a knitter. They always love to add to their yarn stash. Red yarn for Valentine's Day is always a great idea and we have a few options that are easy to order from amazon:
This is an affordable yarn, a wool and acrylic blend. Perfect for a wide variety of projects. I would go with 3-4 balls of yarn for a scarf (really with red yarn it's a little iffy to buy it in large quantities).
If your knitter is known for knitting intricate lace, this is a great purchase for you. Rowan is a very high quality yarn manufacturer out of England and lace yarn is great because you don't have to buy a lot of skeins to make a substantial project. Each skein has 400 yards. Buy two skeins to ensure that your knitter has just enough for a magnificent shawl.
We mention them frequently because they're a great tool to have for any knitter, especially the knitter who travels a lot. It's a complete set of knitting needles with interchangeable tips and connecting cables. They enable knitters to knit just about any project large or small. These are our most popular sets:
Kaffe is one of the foremost knitting pattern designers in the last 40 years. His sense of color and design is unparalleled in the industry. An American headquartered in England, this knitting master is so revered so as to been featured in museums across Great Britain and the world. He's written many different books of knitting and needlepoint books. Each one is an inspiration, especially to those knitters who love knitting intarsia or color stranded projects.
Here's to a thoughtful Valentine's Day for all the knitters!
