Holiday shopping for crafters can be hard sometimes. Maybe you're unsure of which craft exactly your loved one does. Do they knit? Crochet? Weave? Spin? Felt? If you're not sure of the difference between a crochet hook and knitting needles, this post is for you.
There are plenty of gifts for craft enthusiasts that don't actually entail the craft they do. Picking a gift like this will avoid returns after the holiday. Gifts such as project bags and enamel pins are hugely popular! Our selection of project bags includes non-craft specific bags such as the yarn heart tote bag and the yarn heart enamel pin. Both of these products show off your recipient's love of yarn without making the mistake of buying a gift for the wrong craft.
If you are certain of your recipient's craft(s) of choice, that's even better. We have a full selection of craft-specific mugs, totes, and enamel pins for you to choose from. These all make terrific stocking stuffers, or you can pair them with a Tina's Toasty Toes Gift Certificate and let your recipient choose their own yarn or other notions. Our gift certificates are especially good for last minute gifts, because they can be printed out at home or sent electronically to your recipient.
You'll notice that the one thing I haven't mentioned here for your gift recipient is yarn. You're probably questioning why a yarn seller like myself wouldn't suggest that as the first thing to buy as a gift. Here's the thing: yarn is a matter of personal choice. If you know your recipient well enough to know which weight of yarn they use the most, which fiber content they like the most, and which colors they like the most, then yes, yarn will make a fabulous gift. Yarn would also make a fabulous gift if you're like me, and you give your secret Santa direct links to the items you want the most. ;-) If you don't have that level of familiarity with your gift recipient, then the best thing to do would be to stick to a knitting or crochet notion (like a tote bag) or give them a gift certificate.
I want to wish all of you a very happy, healthy, and safe holiday season. Thank you for being part of the Tina's Toasty Toes family, and happy gift shopping!
One of the most frequent requests I've gotten at yarn shows has been for non-superwash weight yarn that can be felted. It gives me great pleasure to introduce you to my newest base yarn: Toasty Non-Superwash Worsted.
This yarn, like all of my others, is hand-dyed in small batches. This non-superwash yarn has great drape, and there's enough in each skein to whip (or WIP!) up a hat, cowl, or fingerless mitts. Each skein has 218 fabulous yards of yarn, and weighs 100 grams. The skeins are 100% Merino Wool.
Knitters and crocheters will enjoy working with this yarn as much as felters will. You can find all the colors of the rainbow on this base here.
