Great Christmas gift ideas for knitters

As Christmas quickly approaches (why does time seem to speed up as we get into November?), it is time to start thinking of what to buy as gifts or what to tell people you want for Christmas.  We have some great items that you can add to your list.

Knitter’s Pride has a great new interchangeable needle kit in the karbonz needles called “Box of Joy”.  There are 9 sizes of needle tips and 4 cords as well as end caps, keys and connectors and a bonus Azure Charm Shawl Pin.  The Karbonz needles are a made of a high tech carbon fibre and have nickel-plated brass tips.  They are warm to the touch and are light with nice tips Th Box of Joy comes in a beautiful box to store all the tips, cords and accessories. You will never be without the correct circular needle size and you can use them with other Knitter’s Pride interchangeable needle tips and cables.

From Hiya Hiya, we have a great knitter’s accessory kit.  They come with all the accessories you might need for knitting – stich holders, stitch markers, point protectors, needle gauge, puppy snips, measuring tape – and it comes with a small small project bag.

If you have ever had your project fall off of your double pointed needles while it was in your knitting bag, double pointed needles tubes are the answer.  They slide over the ends of your needles and keep your project from falling off the needles. They come in sets of 3 tubes, one for storing your double pointed needles and 2 for use with your works in progress.

The new Bergere de France Creations 13/14 has over 150 patterns from baby projects to women’s sweaters to items for the home.  It is a great value for under $20.

If you are still not sure what the knitter in your life might want, we have gift certificates so they can choose whatever they want.

Christmas Open House

Well here we are again and it is time for our annual Christmas Open House.  If you haven’t ever been to our Christmas Open House, you have to come in and see the store at it’s finest – all decorated up for Christmas.  With all the twinkling lights and hundreds of ornaments all hung from the ceiling with care, it is a sight to behold. Christmas Open House is on Wednesday November 6, from 7 pm to 10 pm. Come in and see the full effect of the Christmas lights and get inspired to get those Christmas presents knit or pick a few ornaments or gifts.

In addition to being all gussied up for Christmas, we will be holding a draw for a basket of some lovely yarn.  What a great early Christmas present to start the season.  There will be select yarns on sale so come in and take advantage of our sale to pick up yarn for that special someone for Christmas (yourself maybe?).

We are working hard right now to get the store decorated and ready for the Open House and hope you will join us on Wednesday November 6 from 7 to 10 pm.
