Welcome to my Gift Guide For The Yarnie In Your Life! (Or Yourself?)

Is there a person in your life who is never separated very far from their yarn? Are they always crocheting or knitting while they chat with you? You may have encountered... a YARNIE! I'm a Yarnie too. I've been crocheting for over 40 years and I know what works – the "good stuff."

I've hand-picked the very best gifts for you that are guaranteed to put a smile on any Yarnie's face! You'll find gifts to fit every budget here. For a truly special gift, you could even get them all! Everything except the Ott Lamp would fit nicely inside the ArtBin Yarn Tote too, so you wouldn't even have to gift wrap! Just pick up a large gift bag and you're done!

I've curated these gifts from trusted companies that I would (and do!) buy from myself – just Amazon and eBay, so you can have complete confidence in making your gift selections.

Happy YARNIE shopping!

Get This Fabulous Yarn Tote!

I Did And I Adore Mine!

It doesn't take up a lot of floor space. It's durable canvas-like material. The top zips open BUT you can also skip that and just reach in through the slots on the top! You could stuff enough yarn for a whole afghan project in here. It even has a convenient little snappy strap and carry handle. There is a wonderful zipper pouch on the handle to store your hooks and other small objects. I just love this thing!

I Own And Love This!

Why They'll Love The ArtBin Yarn Drum...

I've used every manner of yarn tote out there, and this is by far the best I've tried! I own this one in the Raspberry color. It weighs virtually nothing. It has two convenient yarn pull-throughs on top, and there's a separate detachable zipper tote you can stash your hooks, cash, ID, etc. in. Perfect for a day of crocheting on the go! Right now mine is filled with 10 large balls of crochet thread! It holds 6-8 skeins of yarn easily as well. I just can't say enough about it! I know one thing, I'm planning to buy it in all the other colors!

Neat Gift Wrapping Idea...

Why not use their new ArtBin Yarn Drum to conceal a few other little surprises - maybe a skein or two of yarn, a crochet hook set or knitting needle set and a nice book on their favorite needlecraft?

You Will Love This Book!

I Know I Treasure Mine!

I made this afghan many years ago. It is still a wonderful book to have in the crochet library! I can still refer to it anytime I need a special stitch pattern. This is a good deal, too. I paid more.

      I confess- I'm a yarnie. I'd like a really neat bag to hold all my bits and pieces. Blessed today by a fellow traveller!

      Yes -- a Yarnie here! :) At the moment yarn is spread across my couch while I'm in the middle of a crochet project, and more yarn awaits in a basket under the coffee table. You are correct -- us Yarnies are happy receiving anything related to our 'yarn obsession'!
