gifts to knit and give... part 2

Continuing our series of Christmas gifts to knit (part 1 of our knitted gift guide can be found here).


Do you know the giftee's shoe size? How about a pair of hand knitted socks in some patterned sock yarn (we have a basic sock and glove pattern too!)




And what about some cabled socks in our new supersoft Regia Angora Merino...

very soft socks!

Something for the hands maybe?

Ysolda Teague's Sherbet Lemon in Scrumptious 4ply

These would look great in our Rico Poems Aran

Camp Out Fingerless Mitts by Tante Ehm, available for free on Ravelry

A bag or purse maybe?


by Louisa Harding in Ondine

For little girls, what about a whole wardrobe of clothes... for their dolls!




Or maybe a new doll? And don't forget a ruffle scarf - great for all ages!

Patons Fairy Dolls

don't forget the boys...

animals in Patons Colourworks Aran (remember we sell toy filling too!)

or a new sweater... no sleeves makes it even quick to knit!

Shore Vest by Cotton & Cloud

Chunky Monkey by Jem Weston, Cute Little Knits

We did scarves in Gifts to Knit and Give Part 1, but we want to add this one.  Its proving very popular with our customers as a Christmas gift...

If you're Christmas knitting list is getting out of hand and you don't think you will have time to make everything BEFORE Christmas why not make up an IOU gift with the promise to make something in January instead?

Or better still... promise to teach them to knit or crochet!


REMEMBER our shopping evening on Wednesday 14th November!    Come along and check out our patterns and samples, find some gift inspiration for your friends and families - maybe have a demonstration of our latest scarf yarns which are perfect for Christmas gifts! Or maybe you'd like to make a wish list for yourself.


We'll have lots of yarnie inspiration and beauty and food gifts too from Fiona at Nirvana Spa  and Penny from Pittenweem's very own Little Herb Farm. They'll be bringing their own selection of spa beauty and gourmet food gifts for you to try and buy!  Festivities start at 7.30pm and you can check out and join our event page on Facebook here.  Please feel free to drop in!
