Greetings and warm wishes to our fellow knitting and fibre enthusiasts, and dare we say friends!
We know that knitting and crochet is so much more than a hobby; it's a creative journey filled with texture, colour, and the joy of handmade warm and woolly goods.
This year we have compiled a Christmas Knitters wish list, curated especially by us fellow fibre lovers here at Stitches and Cream and selected with care based on what we all like to use. From exquisite yarn to beautiful accessories and notions. Our own wish list is one that will elevate your knitting experience, or be perfect as a gift to someone else who loves fibre.
Each and every item on our list is something we would like to receive this festive season. (hint, hint!)
Our Top 10 Knitting Gifts
1. Falmouth Harbour Hat & Mittens Kit
Hand knitted hats and mittens make perfect gifts and are quick projects for the knitter in your life. These gorgeous kits have been created in collaboration with Comfort Road Knits and inspired by the harbour and coastline of Falmouth.
We supply the yarn and the pattern so all you need are the needles and you are ready to go!
2. Studio Lowen Hand Crafted Notions Purse
Lisa the creative behind Studio Lowen is based here in Cornwall. She has created these stunning knitting and sewing accessory gifts all handmade in soft leather in her studio a few miles up the road from here.
The colours we have chosen in the shop reflect the sea and landscape around us here in Cornwall.
3. Knitting Notions
Every knitter and crocheter we know loves a notion and especially some that look as good as these! They make perfect little stocking fillers.
4. BARBER Cords
BARBER cords have taken the knitting world by storm and we can't keep them in stock for very long. These lovely little tins contain the answer to your prayers when you need to save those stitches to pick up later.
They come in a wide range of colours so plenty to choose from!
5. Chapel View Stitch Markers
You can never have too many stitch markers, especially when they're as adorable as these festive gems.
6. Knitted Clutch Kit
Boucle yarn is having a moment and these little clutch bags are so fab we couldn't resist making up some kits for you. The pattern is the Teddy Clutch by Petite Knits and our kits have the yarn, clasp, and the fabric needed to make them up in super quick time.
7. Little Beau Sheep
Wool and Cashmere spray make lovely gifts for anyone who has natural fibre woollens in their wardrobe. These lovely products are made naturally in Britain and smell divine whilst freshening and protecting your handmade knits.
8. Emma Ball Cash For The Stash
Tin Money box. If you are like us you need somewhere to stash money away ready for that next project. Look no further than this little tin!
9. Our new 'Introduction to Knitting' Kits for new knitters
We want as many people as possible to share the experience and the pleasure and companionship that knitting can bring. Many of our customers have been asking for help to get started so we have created our own 'Introduction to Knitting' kit with everything you need to get you inspired. Our workbook takes you through every step a beginner needs to know, and includes checklists and tasks to help develop knowledge and understanding.
To get you started we have included 3 beautiful balls of yarn in 2 different colourways, subtle or bright, as well as the needles and 2 beginner patterns. There is also video support available too.
10. Hide & Hammer Project Bags
Hide and Hammer project bags should be on every knitters wish list. I have 3! I love, love, love them. These need no more words!
Indulge in the joy of giving and receiving this holiday season with Stitches and Cream's Christmas Knitters wish list. Happy crafting!"
