Unicorn scissors for the knitter who has everything ?
Some people seem to have literary everything, and then some. These guys are super hard to buy gifts for. But, I bet your favorite knitting friend doesn’t have a pair of unicorn scissors?!
These scissors are:
- Made from high-quality stainless steel
- 5.25 inches (133mm) long. The blade is roughly 1.75 inches (44mm)
- Works for left-handed and right-handed people alike.
- Pointed blades make it easy to undo seams and make other delicate cuts
- Good for cutting most yarns and fabrics
Psst! These scissors are available in purple, ombre, rose gold, and silver as well. You have to see them!
A pouch for storing knitting notions
The “purrfect” gifts for a knitting cat lady
Stitch markers are a knitter’s best friend!
The markers help to keep track of all sorts of things in knitting like increases and decreases, for example.
This set of cute little kittens will help with everything from pattern repeats in lace patterns to keeping track of the beginning of a row.
Stitch markers are good gifts, cute, useful, and inexpensive! I have a list of 21 cute ones here if you need more inspiration!
Fun socks for all types of yarn crafters!
These socks seem to be your everyday ordinary socks until you sit down and lay your feet up! Under the feet, it says “If you can read this… bring me my yarn” How fun is that 🙂
These socks are available in women’s US sizes 5.5–11.
Knitting socks for the sock knitter
These socks with little knitting needles and yarn balls all over them are a fun and useful gift. Let the knitting show!
I really like this bright color!
These socks are available in women’s US sizes 4-10.5 / EUR 34–41.5 / UK 2–8.5
A super useful gift for knitters!
Knitting in the dark is no fun and no good. It strains on the eyes and stitches can get lost. We can’t let that happen to your favorite knitter, right?
But it’s neither fun to watch TV with the lights in your eyes, I get it and I have a solution!
This LED light can be hung around the neck, lighting up the knitting while leaving the rest of the room dark.
It’s lightweight, has two light sources, and can be adjusted.
(Psst! This product is available in blue and black as well!)
Give a knitting-themed coloring book!
The Mason Dixon Coloring Book for Knitters is a fab gift for any knitter who likes to color too. This book has 32 knitting-themed motifs to color in.
The pictures are printed on one-sided sheets to eliminate show-through and make it possible to frame and hang the pictures!
This book is available from several sellers, be sure to check for the best price!
“Fuck Off, I’m Knitting” (It’s available for crocheters too!)
This mug has a very clear message, and I love it.
And better still, it’s available with a similar image for crocheters, click the button below to check it out!
This large mug holds 15 oz / 44cl of your favorite hot beverage. And, we all love our coffee/tea/hot chocolate, right?
“Fuck off, I’m Knitting” is printed on both sides, which makes this mug suitable for both left and right-handed knitters.
The mug is both microwave and dishwasher-safe.
Personalized clothing tags in faux leather
Tags with the knitter’s name or initials give a little something extra to a knitted garment!
- You can choose the text the recipient’s name, or something like “handmade with love”, for example.
- You can add any engraving like a logo or small illustration
- You can choose the color of your choice
- Different shapes and sizes are available
- Made of faux leather
I would be very happy to receive these for Christmas, the golden one is so pretty!
Keeps yarn cakes from the floor
A yarn spindle that holds the yarn cakes keeps the yarn clean and tidy by keeping it from rolling around.
This one is made of solid acacia hardwood and has a lazy susan bottom that will let the yarn slide easily.
The spindle is 7″ /18 cm high and can hold two 100g yarn cakes at a time.
Organize those knitting (or crochet) charts!
This knitting chart keeper from KnitPro is a good helper for knitting or crocheting charts and patterns. Magnets keep the chart on the board where it’s easy to access while working. When not knitting just close the keeper and it will protect the charts from damage or getting lost.
- The pretty cover is easy to keep clean
- Pockets for pen and notes
- Strong magnets keep everything in place
- Can stand both horizontally and vertically
- Snap closure
Blocking tools: A gift that makes a difference in the end!
A blocking mat with pins is a gift that can be used over and over again for many years to come!
This one is especially useful as it fits any project no matter what size or shape! The squares are put together like a big soft floor puzzle to fit shawls, sweaters, or whatever shape that’s needed.
- Material: Foam
- Water and steam proof
- Printed 1″ by1″ squares makes measuring a breeze
This package includes:
- 9 pieces measuring 12″ by 12″ (30,5cm by 30,5cm),
- A box for storage
- 150 blocking pins.
Blocking is the last finishing step in knitting and crochet. This is where a lot of the magic happens! Uneven stitches open up and the fabric is shaped to look its very best.
It’s done by soaking or steaming the fabric with an iron. The item is shaped onto the blocking mat and pinned down for drying.
Many knitters wash their new garments before blocking them. This wool detergent from Kookaburra is gentle enough for even the most delicate yarns!

Audiobooks + Knitting = a match made in heaven!
Reading is one of my favorite things to do, besides knitting of course!

The solution? Audiobooks!
I can knit and listen to audiobooks for hours, and I bet I’m not the only one.
