The 2016 Knitter’s Gift Guide is here!! Looking for some gift ideas for a fellow knitter? Or maybe you need to send some gift ideas to your loved ones, who have no idea what to get you. Just email a link to this page to your family and friends, and let them know what you want this year (you should totally do that). Here is the place to find ideas for every budget, and every knitter!
Here are my top picks for knitterly gifts this year!
