Moms who knit and crochet love that they can make something to suit you perfectly. That hat you got for your birthday? Hours of knitting and before that, hours of deliberation finding the right yarn and the perfect color. The moms we know are always looking out for the tastes of others. Why not return the favor? This year we rounded up our most tasteful crafting goods for crafty moms!!
Offhand Designs - Made by hand in Oakland, CA, Offhand Designs are the Cadillac of knitting bags (pictured top). They are a bit of an investment, but will last for years. The outer fabric is a durable, textured brocade, and the coordinating lining fabric is silky and won’t felt or full delicate fibers. So pretty! And every detail is carefully considered before production, from the fabric to the fastenings . . . Plus, all Offhand Bags automatically qualify for free UPS ground shipping!
Della Q Needle and Notion Cases- Help mom keep her knitting needles corralled with a jewel-toned needle case from Della Q. We love that all the pockets are neatly numbered so you don’t have to pull every needle out to find the size you’re looking for. Add the Della Q Zip Pouch to hold all the other ephemera floating around in mom’s knit bag, like bobbins, scissors, cable needles, etc.
ArtYarns “Shawl for All Seasons” Kit
If your mom gravitates towards all things glittery we have the perfect gift: the “Shawl for All Seasons” knitting kit!
The kit includes the “Shawl for All Seasons” knitting pattern, ArtYarns Rhapsody Glitter Light for the main color, and four sparkly mini-skeins of ArtYarns Beaded Silk and Sequins Light for the coordinating stripes. (The sample shown right was done in the “Twilight” colorway.)
Bonnie Bishoff Shawl Pins – Give mom a pin to show off her beautiful handknits! Bonnie Bishoff shawl pins are hand sculpted from smooth white bronze and polymer clay. The soft rounded point will not snag on your handknits, and work equally well holding a shawl in place, as a closure on an open-front cardi, or pinned on the band of your favorite hat.
Becoming Art Yarns Theia Fingering – A very special yarn for a very special lady, now in new colorways! Mesmerizing color shifts keep you knitting or crocheting to see where the color will take you and, before you know it, the project is done!

Want to see how it knits up? Our “Bir Hakeim” shawl (more pics on Ravelry) was knit with two skeins of Becoming Art Theia Fingering in “Gypsy Love”.
