Gift Guide!!!

Here’s a few suggestions of some great gifts to give or get!!

sheepbags

First up are some sheep-y things:

Linen project bags from Lantern Moon with either a white or black sheep embroidered on.

A darling eyeglass case, again with an embroidered sheep. ( this one is sporting red glasses!)

Sheep made from vetiver. Vetiver is grown on the mountainsides in Haiti to provent soil erosion caused by deforestation. The root is a natural moth repellent.

lmbags

 

Next we have a variety of silk cases..some for interchangeable sets, some for circulars, some for double points. In the back is a great project bag from Yarn Pop-the clutch-enough room for a project and essentials like a phone and wallet.

needles

We have lots of needle sets – interchangeable circulars and double points.

afghans

 

A glorious gift for a knitter or non knitter, a beautiful afghan kit from Mountain Colors. ( of course there would be a promise to KNIT the afghan for the non knitter!)

Perhaps less of a commitment would be to knit one of these cute beaded bracelets…

stereo

 

…Laura Nelkin’s Stereo Cuff kit!  To make for a non knitter, or give the kit as a fun project for a knitter.

Stop in to see us soon for more gift ideas!

pepmitt

 

They are knit with two colors of Pepperberry 100% Cashmere Sport. See the pink peeking through the eyelets?? That’s the lining…

…they are knit in one piece, you cast on at the top of the lining and work through to the top of the outer mitten.

We’ll be helping with the cast on this Wednesday at our Santa’s Workshop (see our events page )
