Holiday Wish List

It's that time of year where everyone is in full holiday season, so incase you need some inspiration for your own wish list, or you are shopping for a quirky knitter, here are some ideas on some great gifts! Oh, and in case you are on a budget, it's broken down by prices!

Under $10
Hiya Hiya Circular Needles - These needles are my absolute favorite! They tips swivel, so that your cord never gets twisted and kinked, and the tips are so sharp that I accidentally drew blood once when I poked myself (so be careful!)

Octopus Earrings by Paperpistolcharms on Etsy - Who can resist? Octopus earrings! I don't think I need to explain why these are so cool.

Yarn Christmas Tree Ornament by Fuzzbee on Etsy - These are a perfect stocking stuffer for any knitter! They are also made by my friend and fellow Recovering Peace Corps Volunteer, Cassie!

Under $20
Daily Dose of Fiber Oat Bag from Ravelry Mini-Mart - Everyone needs their fiber, and I love bags! 

Under $25
Yarn Love yarn in Granny Smith - I'm really into green right now, and who could resist this amazingly brilliant bright and cheery green? Personally I like the fingering weight, it's enough for a whole shawl!

The Knitgrrl Guide to Profoessional Knitwear Design by Shannon Okey - Shannon is the mastermind behind Cooperative Press, and a very talented knitwear designer. This book has been on my must-read list for ages, and I've heard great reviews that it has information that is applicable to anyone in the craft/fiber business!

Under $50
Supscription to Knitscene - This is by far my favorite knitting magazine, so I couldn't imagine anything better than opening my mailbox and seeing a brand new issue of Knitscene, without even changing out of my pjs! 

Under $75
2 skeins of Blue Moon Fiber Arts BFL Sport in Stormy Weather & Barnsley pattern from Twist Collective - Even though I've knit two of these sweaters I actually don't have one to wear! I really do think that this is a great everyday cardigan, so I would love to knit one for myself!
