Pretty, huh? How about this for awesome and cool: this is a hostess gift. My friend is going to stay with a colleague for the NOLA Jazz Fest and he’s bringing this along as a thank-you because she’s a knitter!
Have you ever thought of bringing hand-dyed yarn to a knitter instead of… oh, a pot of jam or a bottle of wine or a Barnes & Noble gift card? I can tell you, as a knitter, I would be tickled six ways to Sunday if someone did this for me!
Now, my pal didn’t know what type of yarn to get, because he’s not a knitter, but he did know she likes to knit for her grandchildren. A lot of kid patterns are spec’d for DK, so I went with that weight and because he wasn’t sure which child was what age, we picked colors that work well together yet aren’t necessarily ‘girl or boy colors.’
Think you’d like to give yarn the next time you travel or attend a special occasion at a knitter’s house? You’re there with the best gift a knitter or crocheter could want for less than $20 bucks, shipping included.* Or, if you’d like to make a big statement? $75-$100 will buy some spectacular fiber blends in awesome quantities. Don’t know what your hostess or host might prefer? How about a gift certificate for custom yarn just for them?
