Enamel pins: affordable, fun & and cute!

KnitPicks has a lot of funny, cute, and statement pins for yarnies, there are more on their site so be sure to check them out!

These pins can be worn on clothing or on a project bag. Actually one or two of these and a canvas tote would make a great gift together! (you will find nice totes further down in this post)

Pins are fun little gifts, perfect as stocking stuffers too.

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 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 blue and black as well!)

A pouch for storing knitting notions

All knitters have lots of small notions like scissors, wool needles, and stitch markers.

That means they also need something to store all those little bits and pieces in, like a cute pouch with cats playing with yarn, for example.

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!

I really like this bright color, but you can also get these socks with a grey or black background for a little more down-to-earth look. Still fun, but easier to match…

These socks are available in women’s US sizes 4-10.5 / EUR 34–41.5 / UK 2–8.5

Yarn balls + cats = ?

Close up of the cute print

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…

Look at this cute tote bag! If your favorite knitter loves cats, I bet she or he will love to stash their next yarn project in this cat and yarn dream combo!

Size: 14.5″ x 14″ x 3″ gusseted bottom (37cm x 35,5cm x 15cm gusseted bottom)

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, be sure to check for the best price!.

“Fuck Off, I’m Knitting” The perfect mug for every knitter

I think this mug is both hilarious and useful 🙂

It has a very clear message that can come to use while knitting an intricate lace pattern. Or counting stitches.

This large mug holds 15 oz / 44cl of your favorite hot beverage. And, we all love or 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.

Reusable tote with a knitting hedgehog

A strong and spacious canvas bag is always good to have. It can carry projects, yarn, knitting books, or a lunch package and an extra sweater!

But this tote is a little better than all the rest because it has the cutest print of a knitting hedgehog on it! This is to die for…

Psst! This design is also available on a drawstring bag,

Personalized clothing tags in faux leather

Tags with the knitter’s name or initials give a little something extra to a knitted garment!

Nifty tags like these look really cool on the brim of a beanie, the hem of a sweater, or the edge cuff of a sock. They also make the crafter behind the item more visible!

Features:

  • You can choose the text the recipients 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!

Modern design yarn bowl

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!

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.

A Knitting Project Bag – the perfect gift for any Knitter!

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 Amazon Audible!

The perfect combo: a Swift and Yarn Winder set

This luxurious natural wood yarn winder sold by Lion Brand Yarn is handcrafted in birch wood.

Many yarns are sold in hanks and to be able to knit with them they need to be turned into balls or yarn cakes. With a winder, hanks are transformed into yarn cakes in no time!

Fine quality bearing provides super smooth winding of yarn. And it wounds up to 450 gms of fingering yarn at the time!

This luxurious yarn winder is sold by Lion Brand Yarn.

For the knitter who has it all: a beautiful scarf knitting kit

Does your loved one have all the knitting bags and other tools they could possibly use? Then this beautiful scarf knit kit: Elysian Blanket Scarf would be just right!

What’s included in the kit?

  • A digital pattern that you can e-mail to the recipient or download and print.

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.

What’s blocking?
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!
