Holiday Central - Gifts for Knitters

Dream Club December Cowl
By now you are (or should be) knee-deep into your holiday knitting, working your fingers to the bone finishing hand-made gifts for those you love.  But what about gifts for you?

Non-knitters can be intimidated when buying gifts for knitters.  It's not enough that yarn comes in different colors, it also comes in different fibers and weights.  We've made it easy to get some perfect gifts for knitters and crocheters with the great ideas at Holiday Central - and especially the Gifts for Knitters and Crocheters, Stocking Stuffers and Gift Certificates tabs.  Just pass the links (or this blog) along to those who may be shopping for you.  We suggest you prod them with a gentle little reminder, such as "HEY!!!  Look here for some great gift ideas for me! Hint, Hint, Hint!"

Gifts For Knitters and Crocheters ...
  • First determine
    della Q Lena Bag
    if she is a knitter or a crocheter.  The two are very different, and while many people do both most prefer one over the other.  If you're not sure (or if she does both) I suggest the Dream in Color December Dream Club kit.  The kit includes two cowl patterns - one knit and one crochet - plus enough yarn to complete the project.  The kit has only been available since December 1st, so you know it's not something that she already bought for herself years ago. 
  • You've probably noticed that knitters carry around a lot of stuff!  The della Q bags are specifically designed with knitters in mind - sturdy bags that won't tip over and include small pockets for needles and a big pocket for your pattern.  And they're stylish!  The Lena bag is a great bag for traveling, and the Agnes bag is huge enough to get just about everything inside. 
  • If you often see your knitter using circular needles (a cable with a needle at each end), then surprise her with an interchangeable set.  ChiaoGoo's new 4 inch sets are a great choice.  The Spin sets have wooden needles that swivel, and the Twist sets have stainless steel needles.  The hot, new addi Rocket Clicks (aka Lace Long Tip Sets) combine the fantastic addi Rocket needles with interchangeables.  Give us a call and we can help you decide which set your knitter would prefer.
  • addi Rocket Clicks
  • Befuddled by interchangeables?  The FiberWild! Exclusive addi Click Starter Kit is a combo-platter offering a sample of all the different addi interchangeable tips available.  Let her test drive all the addi varieties to see which she likes best!  (Plus once you know which set she prefers you'll have a great gift idea for her birthday, anniversary, Valentine's Day . . . )
  • The "Knit, Swirl" book by Sandra McIver presents 18 designs for a "swirl" coat that flatters all figures and is fun to knit!  We've created Knit, Swirl yarn kits for the two most popular designs, the Coat of Many (or One) Colors and Plum Perfect
  • Great things come in small packages!  All of our Stocking Stuffers are less than $25, and quite a few are just $5. 
We offer free shipping on orders over $75, but you also have the option to use a faster delivery service if necessary.  Don't forget to check out shipping deadlines on our website!

Plum Perfect Knit, Swirl Coat
Not real confident that the gift you bought is the right one?  We are happy to work with you to make sure the knitter in your life is happy!

Still not sure?  A Gift Certificate is always the right size and color!  Get your knitter a Gift Certificate, and then let her loose in the store or online to pick out exactly what she wants!  And procrastinators can rest easy . . . e-mail Gift Certificates can be ordered up until noon on Christmas Eve and still arrive in time for Christmas!

Feel free to call the shop for help and questions when shopping for your knitter. 

Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
