The Perfect Knitting Gifts That'll Make Someone REALLY Happy

Watch out, they may want to just kiss you for it.

If you're lucky enough to know a knitter, we've got some great news for you. Knitters are the best type of people to shop for. They can never have enough yarn, needles or knick-knacks to help them purl their way through the winter, and you'll be their favorite person if you keep them well stocked in supplies.

While the average knitter might buy him or herself affordable acrylic yarns, you can do your favorite knitter a favor by treating them to a little luxury with some wool or cashmere skeins, in all sorts of gorgeous colors. But it can get a lot more creative than just yarn -- whether you just want to fill someone's stocking or you're looking for a more generous gift, the options abound.

Below, we've rounded up some of our favorite knitter-approved treats that any crafter will be thrilled to receive this holiday season. (Ahem, hint hint.)

1
Stocking Stuffer: Stitch Holders
Purl Soho
When you're knitting projects that require several different pieces (sleeves, etc.), you need stitch holders to keep them in place and free up your knitting needles while you knit the rest of the project.

Stocking Stuffer: Knitting Needle Gauge
