A box arrived last week.  It had a handwritten label and a return address in France.  Inside were beautiful skeins of handspun yarn in different fibers and enchanting colors from our friend, Spin Span Spun. 

There are only a few, but they were spun and chosen with care and would make the most beautiful gift for some very special knitter or crocheter on your gift list.  Above is a peek at one of her colors. 



We also got a big box of books with some great new titles.  From the One-Skein Wonder author is Sock Yarn One-Skein Wonders.  There are some great patterns in this book, there's still time to knit them up before Christmas or gift this to your favorite sock knitter!

And from an inspired Barbara Walker fan is this new book.  The designs are wonderful and doable. 

If you are looking for last minute gifts to knit or crochet may I suggest Small Balls and Big Balls? 
Small balls are 65 yards of 100% wool, in great colors and perfect for small projects! Come see the patterns that accompany these.  Big Balls are 220 yards of 100% Alpaca.  Hubba, hubba...

And, if none of these seems to be just the right thing, we have gift certificates for Knit 1.  They can be used toward a class or merch whatever the giftee wants.
