Every crocheter and knitter uses stitch markers, and if they don’t, they should! And markers have a way of getting lost, so we always need more.
There are several different styles of marker. Even if the gift recipient has a current favorite, it’s always a good idea to try new products. Try them all!
Hint: Crocheters need markers that open. Look for the words “locking”, “split ring”, or “opening” in the title to make sure you are getting the right kind.
A good pair of scissors is always appreciated. I’m always on the lookout for tiny scissors that pack easily but are sharp enough to cut well.
Wondering about scissors in your airplane carry-on? According to the TSA, scissors with blades less than 4″ are allowed. However, razor blade style circular thread cutters are not allowed.
Small Tools & Notions
Besides stitch markers and scissors, there are all kinds of little tools that make a fiber artist’s life easier. Here are some suggestions.
Hint: Check before buying tape measures. They either have WAY too many already, or not quite enough.
Note Cards & Paper
We can’t play with yarn ALL the time! Sometimes we have to write old-fashioned notes, on paper.
A Google search will lead you to lots of knitting and crochet-themed paper products. Here are some of my favorites.
Things to Drink From
It’s important for crafters to stay hydrated. Whether that’s water, soda, or wine, there are plenty of options for yarn-related beverage containers.
Once you open your eyes to the possibilities, there are lots of stocking stuffers for knitters and crocheters.
