Gift ideas for the  special people in your life who knit. Knitters love to get that special yarn or special  needles that they put off getting so that they can make things for others.  As a knitter it is also really nice to receive a knitted gift, we know how much work and love go into making something and value the gift for the personal touch. For the wannabe knitter there are "how to" CD's and combinations that we can put together to get them started, (yarn, needles, accessories).  Check out the suggestions below and feel free to call for suggestions and ideas. A gift certificate is a fun gift that the receiver can use when they want to get that special thing that they have been eyeing for some time. Easy to order and available in whatever amount you want to spend.
