Gifts for fiber lovers

Are you wondering what kind of gift to buy for your favorite fiber enthusiast? Here are my picks of affordable gifts from Etsy.

This keychain from michellemach would be great for any yarn enthusiast – weaver, spinner, knitter, crocheter. It’s the gift that says it all.

And what crocheter has not encountered someone who calls his or her work knitting?  Oh the shame of it!  Etsy’s TheSamAntics has the answer:

Nancy, over at BlingnPrint Street has a couple of rhinestone t-shirts for knitting and sewing. It looks like her crochet shirt sold* (yea!), but she does custom work so don’t be afraid to ask:

For Sewers

Neither knitters nor crocheters can ever have enough stitch markers. I used to have a lot. Now they are lost, or marking the works in progress I have hidden, whoops, no stored in my closet. Here are some cute stitch markers from Swinging Vines Farm:

Here’s a real handy set for those who constantly get interrupted while counting from JillsHandmadeStuff:

I don’t know many spinners who would turn fiber down, especially these luxury fibers from MielkesFiberArts. Don’t flip out if the spinner zones out for a while as he or she fondles the cushy goodness of luxurious fiber.

Or, if you really don’t want to see someone fondle fiber, your spinner may also enjoy some earrings from PincushionCrazy:

Every fiber enthusiast loves sheep. These crocheted sheep from HundredSheeps are cute:

Oh! We can’t forget the cute little stockings that I am offering for crocheters over at the PenandHook:

This would be fun to find hanging on the tree Christmas morning. I am even including a name tag for gifting.

There are literally hundreds of options over on Etsy. Why don’t you pop on over there and give it a try? You’ll be purchasing from a small business and buying a unique, handmade gift well.

*Correction: Nancy’s crochet shirt did not sell. I just overlooked it in her store:
