Christmas has come and gone and your stockings might have been filled with wonderful little trinkets or perhaps a lovely Got Your Goat Gift Card. If you were lucky enough to receive one of those you might be reeling with ideas about what to spend it on. Let me help you figure out how to spend it.
Books are always a good choice, you may never knit a pattern from them but that's ok. Some books are purely for inspiration and can be a blast to flip through every now and then and some may only have a couple that you don't plan on making. Here are some titles we currently have at the shop:
Knitter's Almanac by Elizabeth Zimmermann.
Knit & Wrap by Nathalie Mornu
Contemporary Crochet by Sys Fredens
The Best of KnitScene by Lisa Shroyer
Needles, who isn't looking to build up their needle collection? We carry Knit Picks Harmony, Hiya Hiya, Addi Turbo and Crystal Palace. We have sets in the Addis, Knit Picks and Lantern Moon. Good tools make for a better experience and product.
Bags, I honestly think that you can never have enough knitting bags. Your husbands may disagree but they tend to forget that when they walk around in a hand made object. We carry Lantern Moon baskets, Hadaki Bags and Tango Tango project bags. They come in all sizes and colors. There may just be the perfect bag for you waiting here at the shop.
And last but not least, yarn. We have tons, from lace all the way to super bulky. Some favorites that have surfaced for the season are:
Classic Elite's MoutainTop Chalet (Aran)
The Fibre Company Tundra (Chunky)
Cascade Eco Duo (Worsted)
Alchemy Silken Straw (Sport)
Now for everything we have mentioned there are many more options available, we are just throwing out a few to help turn the wheels. So come on in and check it out and put those gift cards to good use.
