There is nothing sadder than a sick or injured knitter. Anything that keeps a knitter from their knitting is enough to make them miserable. Whether nursing a rough cold, a physical injury or recovering from having a baby it can be difficult to get a knitter to cheer up when they're ill. This is mainly because they can't do the thing that works so well to cheer them up. So your job, if you're buying a get well gift for a knitter is to provide them with a gift that allows them to enjoy knitting...without actually having to knit.
You'd be surprised just how many knitting books there are out there and they are a treat for any and all knitters. They teach new techniques, offer a little knitting project eye candy and generally transport the knitter to a knitting fantasy-land where the world is all knitting, all the time.
The closest thing a knitter can do to knitting when he or she is too sick to knit is to read copious knitting magazines in the tub. This is can aid the healing process as well. Nothing can inspire speedy recovery in a knitter than the idea of a new knitting project and knitting magazines can and will inspire them to take their knitting to the next level.
If a knitter can't knit they might as well watch a movie about knitting, or somehow includes knitting. Here are a few available for sale for instant download from Amazon.
A tablet pc is one of the hottest gifts for knitters for 2013. Knitters can check out their favorite knitting blogs, log into ravelry to view patterns, read knitting magazines and even keep their favorite knitting patterns on them. This could translate into some serious extra space in your house.
If you need to make a sick knitter smile, these gifts will certainly do the trick!Add a comment
If you're looking for a birthday gift for a knitter, no doubt you want to show your knitter just how much you love what they make for you. You want to find a gift that appreciates the thought, time and effort your loved one takes to make beautiful hand-knitted presents. Birthdays are the perfect opportunity to get a knitter something special that they may not pick out for themselves. Fortunately there are a ton of unique gifts just for knitters that will make you look like a rock star when the knitter you love opens their birthday present.
The best birthday presents for knitters are ones that will make knitting even more enjoyable for them, but what could possible make knitting even more fun?
The best knitting needles are a sets in interchangeable knitting needles that include every needle size available, along with connecting cords of various sizes to accommodate any knitting project. There are many different interchangeable knitting needle sets available. Do check out our interchangeable knitting needle guide if you want a more comprehensive review, however here are three different sets, one in each price range that will knock your knitter's socks off.
Every knitter needs multiple knitting bags and the tools to keep them well organized. The best way to keep your knitting bag manageable is to have smaller bags to carry projects, notions and knitting needles. You have project bags, which keep your projects from getting tangled with the rest of your knitting stuff. Then you have mini notions bags, which hold your measuring tapes, tapestry needles, row counters and stitch markers. Add in a needle case to make sure your knitting needles stay together and you have an unforgettable birthday present for a knitter.
If you're going to buy yarn for a knitter as a birthday present, you have to go for the good stuff. Don't just go to Michael's or Joann's. Knitters can go there anytime they want. Birthdays are special and they give you the opportunity to get something a little different than what your knitter is used to. You don't even have to spend a ton of money. There are amazing yarns out there for as little as $5.75/skein that will result in heirloom style hand knits.
What the heck are these goofy contraptions? A swift and winder when used in combination allow knitters to wind skeins of yarn into balls. This is required because you can't knit from a skein. If you do you'll just end up with a nasty pile of tangles that will take hours or days to fix. A swift and winder saves hours of time. Instead of winding balls yourself, wrapping the yarn around a chair (or your hands) you use this nifty little machine and you have multiple balls of yarn in a matter of minutes.
Sure, knitters can check out knitting patterns til the cows come home on ravelry, but knitting magazines offer a knitting fantasy land with on trend styles, technique tutorials and knitting designer profiles. They're a great way to enjoy knitting without actually knitting anything.
These gifts will make any knitter happy on their birthday. Got any great gift ideas for knitters? Got a great birthday knitting story? Be sure to share in the comments.Add a comment
