Last minute gifts for Knitters and those who crochet

I got a chance to catch up with my sister on the phone last night and she is suffering from holiday stress.  As a working mother of two with a house full of pets, she finds holiday shopping to be a chore, because she simply doesn’t have the time she’d like to devote to finding the most thoughtfully perfect gift for everyone on her long list.  Her situation made me think of Jenny, a regular here at the shop who has come up with a fun solution: she and her husband are each getting themselves the perfect gift.  They won’t exchange gifts but will still have that wonderful surprise of seeing what the other selected.  Odds are it won’t be what the other might have selected; and neither has any anxiety about hoping they got it right.

With that in mind, I have created a little list of gifts for the knitters and crocheters among us.  I hope that you’ll pass on these ideas to anyone who is searching for the perfect gift for you.  It can promise a wonderful treat for you and a little less stress for those shopping for you.  Everyone wins!
