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 unicorn scissor?!
These scissors are:

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, lightning 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 white and pink, white and blue, and black as well!)
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 three adorable little kittens sitting in teacups would look great, and be a big help, in any knitting project!
Stitch markers are good gifts, cute, useful, and inexpensive! I have a list of 21 cute ones here if you need more inspiration!
Knitting-socks for the sock knitter
These socks with little knitting needles and yarn balls all over them is a fun and useful gift. Let the knitting show!

Yarn balls + cats = ?
There’s not much that can compete with yarn, but cats come close! No matter how much you pet your yarn it won’t purr…

Most yarn bowls I have seen are made of wood or ceramics, and those are lovely!
But this faux-marble one is made of resin. This one is the first yarn bowl I have stumbled upon that has this modern feel to it, and I love it!
The marble look and the neutral colors would fit in almost any type of interior decor!

Audiobooks + Knitting = a match made in heaven!
Reading is one of my favorite things to do, besides knitting of course!
And that’s a bit of a problem for me. I want to read and I want to knit. But I can’t manage to do them both at the same time.
The solution? Audiobooks!
I can knit and listen to audiobooks for hours, and I bet I’m not the only one.
Give your favorite knitter the world of books in the form of a subscription to Audible!

For the knitter who got it all: a beautiful yarn kit
Does your loved one have all the knitting bags and other tools they could possibly use? Then this beautiful scarf knit kit could be just right!
This kit is for someone that’s been knitting for some time, as cables aren’t suitable for newbies.
When you order this kit you can choose between 13 beautiful colors. You will receive a package with 11 balls of Ramble, a 100% merino yarn from Willow and Lark Yarns, and a downloadable pdf pattern. You can then e-mail or print the pattern to give to your friend.

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 shaped that’s needed.

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 it. This wool detergent from Kookaburra is gentle enough for even the most delicate yarns!
