It seems that everyone has been in the Holiday spirit since before Halloween! Personally, I think there is a time and place for everything. Plus, who wants to skip over Thanksgiving?!
SO, now that the turkey is gone and christmas lights are starting to be put up here are some awesome ideas for stocking stuffers and gifts for all your crafty friends! I hope you enjoy!
1) Yarn. Duh, right? But my idea is something more than just yarn. Chances are the person you’re buying gifts for has a bunch of yarn from Michael’s or Joanns, the idea is to buy them a “fancy” yarn. Something they can’t find in a store, hand made and beautiful. If you don’t have artisan yarn shops in your area you can head to Etsy where there are a bunch of local shops that make and dye their own yarns.
2) Cable Needles – These are perfect! I want them! (hint hint) They are the perfect size and the hook part makes them stay in place until you finish the row. One of my biggest pet peeves is having double pointed needles and worrying they might fall through and I could lose the stitch. NOOOO! You better believe these are on my list this year 🙂
3) A Sewing Basket – Perfect for the fashion designer in your life. I personally don’t have a lot of speace in my home for an entire sewing room and currently have all my sewing gear in a box on my desk. This basket will help me put everything in one place and maybe be able to store it in my closet so that I can declutter my table.
4) A YARN BAG! THIS IS THE BEST THING I’VE EVER SEEN! Okay, sorry, but this made me SO excited when I saw it. As you can see you can put different skeins of yarn, your needles or hooks and some books in this bag. Whenever I go on a plane or a train I love bringing my projects with me and this is exactly what I need. I usually end up stuffing a ball of yarn in my bag and then it gets tangled in all the stuff that’s piled up in the bottom of my purse.
5 and 6) Crochet and Knitting books and magazines – This is a gift to give to someone who is either a beginner or someone who is trying to take their crating up a notch. The books are great becase they have a bunch of pictures and explanations on how you should be working the project as well as give you a rough guideline on how to start making your own patterns.
