Cheeky Geeky Crafty Knitty New Year Video Post

Happy New Year – Here are a few things I’ve been thinking about: Knitting, what other people are knitting, watching tv while I’m knitting, listening to audio books while I’m knitting, listening to podcasts while I’m knitting, Downton Abbey, Valentine’s Day, and what you’re watching or listening to while you’re knitting.

Stocking Stuffers for Knitters


About 7 years ago, the first Christmas after I started knitting, Hubby surprised me by stuffing my stocking with a bunch of cool little knitters tools. I was such a new knitter that I didn’t even know they existed. There was a row counter and some stitch markers and a few other things. He told me he went into my local yarn shop and stared at the wall of tools trying to figure out what things were and if I needed them. One of the kind sales workers must have seen his dazed and confused expression and picked out a bunch of stuff. The story still tickles me now because he made such an effort to find things that would support my knitting. It showed me how he “got” that knitting had become one of my pleasures. Sadly, that knitting store no longer exists. But many things can be purchased online or at other knitting local knitting, fabric, and craft stores.

Here are some ideas for last minute stocking stuffers for knitters.

For other gifts for knitters, the Yarn Harlot has been adding cool ideas throughout December for “non-knitters who love knitters.”
Start with Day 1

And if your knitter is also a crafter – here’s my list of stocking stuffers for crafters that I posted on Skinny Scoop.
