Still A Chance!

Un-Pack, Un-Wrap, Re-wrap, Re-Pack, Repeat, Dance and Giggle and Squeal!

That is what has been happening these last few days in preparation for mailing the Outlandish Clan Kits!

Oh the fun of it all!

There were squeals as each item was admired and wrapped. Moments of “I want to keep this one!” (That was actually me most times I wrapped a skein of yarn!)

Stickers and wash tape, tissue paper and envelopes, skeins to be wound, needles and notions and gifts to enclose!

Oh my goodness!

Like Christmas!

Gift Ideas for Knitters

{Errr…rather “Gift Ideas that You, Dear Knitter, can pass on to a loved one to help them shop!” but that blog title wouldn’t fit so well in the title line!}
I am not knitting many gifts for people, I never do. I AM planning on giving knitting and yarn treats to others though, to be an ambassador of yarn and fiber arts! Join me this weekend for the start of what I hope to be easy ideas to share the love of Yarn Life this season 😉 And when I say “join me” I mean sit down and watch me do a few things…that’s right! The podcasts airs again this weekend! Is anyone excited? These will be simple fun ideas for us to showcase the joy and beauty of our passion, or as others may be inclined to mis-label it: “our hobby”
Apart from this fun there are also a few ideas that qualify as those gifts this time of year “that keep on giving”. There are some awesome treats perfect for knitters (though these may actually be perfect for YOU my knitting companion, so forward this post to your significant other…there is a handy share button at the bottom of the page!)
Here are 3 treats that are so rad they would make any knitter burst into squeals of joy:
