The perfect gift for knitters: A set of high-quality Knitting Needles
This set is amazing! I have had mine for years and I will never buy another brand of knitting needles again.
I have written a whole post about the HiyaHiya Knitting Needles and why I recommend them to every knitter. You find that post here!
- These needles are interchangeable
- You get four cables in four lengths
- You get seven pair of tips in sizes 2-8 US /2.75-5mm
- Keyless screw-on connections
- Swivel cables
- A cute brocade case to hold cables, tips, and knitting notions
This set is a bit on the expensive side. But it’s worth every cent. I have used mine for years and it’s still as new, the quality is really good. And for the record, I knit a lot!
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!
The perfect combo: a Swift and Yarn Winder set
This yarn ball winder and swift set is a must-have for every knitter that likes to shop or wish for yarn. And, well that’s actually every knitter I know…

A Knitting Project Bag – the perfect gift for any Knitter!
This one is my absolute favorite in the range of knitting project bags found on Amazon!
I’m a sucker for stripes, but besides that, I really like the features of this bag.
- The bag can be worn over the shoulder and leaving the hands free for knitting
- Three grommets allow for knitting with several strands of yarns at the same time, without the yarn getting tangled.
- The bag is made of durable canvas
- Pockets on the inside are key to keep everything tidy and organized. There are enough pockets to keep all the necessary notions and a phone!
- A PVC layer on the inside divides the bag into two compartments
- Also available in red and white
It’s pretty, versatile, and has room for everything, even including a phone! And, the price is quite nice too.
Click over to Amazon to see more photos of the bag. The way this bag is divided into two compartments is really clever.
My most used knitting book – this covers all you need to know!
My most used knitting book is Step-by-step encyclopedia of Needlecraft, written by Judy Brittain.
This book shows the basics of knitting and covers different techniques as well as crochet, weaving, embroidery and much more.
Vogue® Knitting The Ultimate Knitting Book
Vogue® Knitting The Ultimate Knitting Book by the editors of Vouge® Knitting Magazine
This book is the number one seller amongst the Needlecrafts books on Amazon. The book has been printed several times and this edition is completely revised and updated.
It’s a reference book that’s all about knitting from start to finish.
A yarn bowl keeps the yarn ball in place
Yarn bowls are such a smart idea!
The bowl holds the yarn ball so that it doesn’t roll around or down on the floor and get dusty and tangled. There is an opening for the yarn strand assuring the ball doesn’t jump over the edge.
For knitting colorwork, it’s really useful to have one bowl for every ball to stop the strands from getting tangled together!
This yarn bowl also has a lid to keep the yarn clean and hide it when it’s not in use.

Blocking tools: A gift that makes a difference in the end!
A blocking mat is a fantastic tool for knitters!
This one is especially useful as it fits any project no matter what size or shape.
Assemble it like a puzzle to any shape you like. The mat is made of foam and it’s both water and steam proof.
Another great feature of this mat is that it has printed 1″ squares to help with measurements.
This package includes 9 pieces measuring 12″ by 12″, a box for storing and 150 blocking pins.
How to use it:
Blocking is an essential last finishing in knitting.
It’s done to open up the stitches and allow lace and stitch patterns to look their very best. It’s also a way to shape the knitting a bit to ensure it’s the shape and size that’s intended.
First, the knitted item is soaked lightly, or carefully washed with a suitable washing detergent, like this one from Kookaburra for example.
Second, the blocking mat is ”puzzled” together and the project is arranged on top. The blocking pins are used to hold the garment in place while it’s drying.
Give a knitting-themed coloring book!
The Mason Dixon Coloring Book for Knitters is a fab gift for any knitter that 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, for different prices.

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?

It’s lightweight, has two light sources, can be adjusted, and it comes in different colors!
