From a Yarn Crafter’s Holiday Wish List: I Wish I Had the Whole Set!

At Laurel Hill we are lucky to meet yarn crafters from far and wide – our friends hail from California to New York, from Norway to the UK, from the Midwest and beyond.  We’ve learned that whether young or old, new knitter or veteran crocheter, they share a love for the finest fiber art tools on the market today.  And even better than the single set of knitting needles or the lone crochet hook is the Holy Grail, otherwise known as “the complete set.” Ask any yarn crafter and she or he will tell you that having every size option at your fingertips, all matching and in perfect order, is something to aspire to, to wish for, and sometimes even to dream about.


Because we know this, we have made it very easy to fulfill that wish.  Our dedicated web page includes many complete sets that can be purchased and shipped in time for the holidays.  Imagine how happy your favorite knitter or crocheter will be when she or he receives a beautifully packaged complete set of needles or hooks that are beautiful to look at, beautiful to touch and so comfortable to hold.

“I have let my husband, my daughters and my friends know what I want for the holidays,” said knitter Vicki B. “I even gave them the link for Laurel Hill’s website since those are my favorite needles.  I am just hoping someone comes through!”

Thinking of a gift for a knitter but don’t want to buy the whole set?  Laurel Hill also has great ideas for stocking stuffers – like coconut palm knitting needles that start at $5 per pair.

We’ve made it easy – one stop shopping for an unbelievable selection of fiber arts tools at Laurel Hill in just a few clicks. You will discover the perfect gift for your special knitter or crocheter….or for yourself!

Happy Yarn Crafting from your friends at Laurel Hill!

Holiday Project Round-Up

As the world’s slowest knitter, I should’ve started my Holiday gift projects last summer, but I get the impression that there is still time for those who knit at an average pace to get some gifts made and make loved and well-liked ones happy (and warm). Some of my favorite projects from around the Yarniverse:

Alpaca Mini Socks Pattern from Classic Elite Yarns – pattern for these adorable little socks is free. Make a bunch and create a nontraditional advent calendar.


Pretty in Pink: Knit a Playful Pink Ribbon Hat – granted, this post and project idea was designed for October’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, but each of my sisters would love something like this.


Glass Flip-Flop Crochet Pattern – I was just at WineStyles this week and saw some wine glass flip flops that I thought were pretty cute… not quite as cute as handmade, though. These are adorable and come via The Crochet Dude.


Puff Daddy is in the House – I would love this! It looks easy and quick and tons of fun. You can get the info and the pattern via Mason Dixon Knitting.

Delores Park Cowl – A one-skein project that knits up quickly and I can imagine it in a variety of colors for mom, best friend, office mate… who knows! I might have to try this one.

Right now, I’m leaning toward creating little “bath kits” with a knitted (or crocheted if I can get my act together on that) washcloth with a bar of homemade soap (not by me, but from my local crafter’s market) in a pretty bag of some sort. There are tons of patterns for washcloths and dishcloths on the internets.

I like the Bernat pattern for knitting.
