  1. Happy December. 

    If you're looking for a present for a knitter we've got some great suggestions for you whether you're looking for stocking fillers (or stocking stuffers as they seem to have become!) or something bigger.

    These presents are ready to post - so order before 1400 and we promise they'll be on their way to you the same day. 

    rainbow embroidered cotton zip pouch project bag

    Our embroidered zip pouches are the perfect home for smaller projects - and we've seen a fair few used as makeup bags and pencil cases too. Made from fairtrade organic cotton and embroidered by us in our Yorkshire studio these bags would be loved by any maker - and you could add some rainbow mini skeins for am extra treat.

    We understand that it's tricky buying for a knitter if you don't knit yourself. There's a lot to figure out - which yarn, which needles, which pattern - and what goes together. Our kits make that easy - there's a big skein of yarn, 12 little mini skeins of yarn and a pattern booklet, so your knitter will have the right yarn to make one of three projects. We don't supply needles because your knitter will have those already.

    If you're looking for stocking fillers our wooden needle gauges make a lovely addition to any knitters tool kit, and they'll be used for years to come.

    Our last stocking filler suggestion is one that's sure to raise a smile - badges. Knitters and crocheters treasure these as a way of decorating project bags, tote bags and more. Our badges also include a donation to the TrussellTrust.

  2. baa humbug embroidered organic fairtrade cotton drawstring bag

    We've added new cotton project bags to the shop - and these would make a lovely Chistmas gift. Embroidered by us on cotton bags that are both organic and Fairtrade, our Baa Humbug sheep is perfect whether you love Christmas or would be happy for it to be cancelled. The black and white stripes remind me of mint humbugs too, so I'd be happy to use this bag all year round.

    These bags are ideal if you're looking for a simpler project bag - there's no lining or pokets, and that lets us sell the bags for £10. They're ideal gifts for posting too as they'll fold up and go as large letter post.

    We've also put together a few kits with lucky dip mini skeins and bags - ideal if you missed out on one of our advent calendars which are now sold out.

    Just choose from 12 mini skeins and a bag (£30) or 24 mini skeins and a bag (£49) and we'll take care of the rest. The mini skeins won't be wrapped - we thought about it and decided that the lucky dip colours meant that most people would prefer to be able to see the colours and choose their order. 

    We can't guarantee what colours you'll get - just that they'll all be different. The mini skeins will be on our 4ply Britsock base so you'll get 40 meters of yarn in each 10 gram mini skein.
