Home Made Holiday Gift Guide

Let’s get to it. The second installment of our Home Made holiday gift guide is here! Today, we’re loving up all things knitting-related. So, if you are searching for the perfect gift for your favorite knitter, this one’s for you.

Give hours of yarn fun. Because your favorite knitter appreciates handmade for the holidays. 

Handmade Holidays Gift Guide No. 2 : Knittin’ Gifts

*A Swift and Wool Winder. Your local yarn shop owner (me) will happily wind yarn for you when you purchase it in the Home Made shop. But, sometimes you just want to do it yourself. At home. And, you don’t always have a loved one around to wrap the hank around their arms and then walk around them in a circle, winding the yarn into a ball yourself. Unless this is what you save for your children to keep them occupied. . .

Our umbrella swift is made of finished birch and will fit up to a 60″ skein. Pair it with our Royal Ball Winder and you’re good to go!

*Sheep Project Bag. Handmade in glorious Swainton, NJ, this adorable sheep drawstring project bag is lined in a fun green fabric and made by me! Perfect for keeping those projects organized, especially for a knitter on the go. And, I challenge you to find a knitter that doesn’t swoon over sheep. Well, I guess you could find someone who is allergic to wool. Then, they might itch instead of swoon.

*Blue Sky Alpacas Five Inch Double Points. For knitting small things. These gorgeous needles are handcrafted of Dalbergia rosewood and available in sizes US 0-6. These double points are packaged in a collector’s tin for easy storage, too, which makes receiving these needles a real treat. Perfect stocking stuffer. Or, pair with some sock yarn, a project bag, and make a gift set!

Home Made Gift Guide No. 2

*Eucalan. A no rinse, lanolin enriched delicate wash. Just what you need to care for all those hand knit things! We’ve got Eucalan in 3.3 oz. and 16.9 oz. bottles in five scents — Natural, Grapefruit, Eucalyptus, Lavender, and the new Wrapture with jasmine oil. Breathe a sweet smelling sigh of relief that you’re helping preserve all those beautiful stitches with every washing.

*Pom-pom Makers. Pom-poms!!! Super fun and easy way to add oomph to a knit project. Or, you could make garland, gift wrap, ornaments, decorations, hair accessories . . . I could go on, but I’ll stop there. My point is, we’ve got Clover Pom-Pom Makers in a variety of sizes so making pom-poms is fun for all ages. Grab some yarn, a Pom-Pom Maker, scissors, and you’re ready for so much fun you might just cancel those big Friday night plans! Or not. {Photo from Design Love Fest}

*Yarn Bowl. Handmade yarn bowls made exclusively for Home Made by The Madd Potters’ Studio of Cape May. They keep that yarn from rolling all around while you’re knitting, which is especially helpful if you’ve got animals lying around ready to pounce on that stray yarn that looks awfully like the best toy ever. And, not an instrumental part of your knitting project. 

Happy Holidays and Happy Gifting!
