Shopping for a new knitter this holiday season? Or, new to knitting yourself and curious what is worth adding to your arsenal and want to add it to your request list? Today's blog post explains what each basic tool is and why a new knitter might love to receive it this season. Some are not essential, but they make life nice while knitting. And if you're wondering where to buy these gifts, I recommend Local Yarn Stores. Two of my favorites around Cleveland are @castonyarnstudio for the west side and @theartfulyarn for the east side.
