The Non-Knitters Guide to Shopping for a Knitter


Don't knit, but want to buy for a knitter?  It's not enough that yarn comes in different colors, it also comes in different fibers and weights, and the needles need to match too.

So what's a non-knitter to do?  We've made it easy to get some perfect gifts for knitters and crocheters with the great ideas on our Holiday Gifts page.  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!"

We've broken our suggestions down into easy categories: 
  • Shawl Pins & Closures -
    Addi Art 24K - Yup, it's real gold.
    Not sure if she is a knitter or crocheter?  Doesn't matter.  Every fiber artist can use some shawl pins and closures.  In fact, shawl pins and closures are great for anyone who wears shawls, whether they make them or buy them.
  • Tools & Gizmos - Every occupation has its tools, and knitting is no different.  From instructional books to blocking tools, needle cases, knitting bags and more, knitting can be as simple or as advanced as you choose. 
  • Needle & Hook Sets - Simply put, you just can't knit or crochet without 'em! 
  • Gifts by Price - Sometimes it's just easier to scroll through the options by price.  We've got Gifts over $100, Gifts Under $10, and everything in-between. 
  • Kits to Make or Give - Kits include the yarn and pattern in one neat package - easy to give as a kit or make and give as a completed project!
  • Novelty Items -
    Knitting Gauge - Under $5
    Some are elegant and sophisticated, some are silly and cute, but they're all novelty items. 
  • Stocking Stuffers - Need just a few small things to stuff in the stocking?  Here they are.
  • Gift Yarn - The sort of luxury yarn you may not buy for yourself - but it's very nice to receive as a gift!
  • Greeting Cards - Handmade cards send warm thoughts to fiber artists!  Do you see the scissors, crochet hooks, stitch markers, and other notions hidden in the "Stitchmas" tree? 
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!
