So you want to give a present to a knitter. Or you're visiting Dublin and you'd like a souvenir for yourself or someone else back home. You could spend a lot of time trying to find a pattern and some yarn that work together. We can help with this, of course, but we can speed the process up with our exclusive gift packages. Three combinations that we've found very popular are Cutie Booties in Sublime Baby Cashmere Merino Silk DK (we've put a sachet of Soak in there for even more softness), the Mulberry Gift Bag which uses a combination of Louisa Harding Sari Silk and DK wool, and our star of radio and TV, the Scribble Lace Stole in Debbie Bliss Angel with a number of contrast colour yarns. We also have gift kits that come in handy project bags. Again, there's a variety to choose from. There's a kit for the Cuddles and Cables baby blanket knit from Debbie Bliss Cashmerino which we featured here a few weeks back, and one for the Ringsend Cowl, a mÃ¶bius cowl knit flat and then joined, in Malabrigo Silky Merino. We also have kits for the Glenties Cowl in Debbie Bliss Glen, and for Braidheart, which can be knitted either as a cowl or a scarf. All of these kits feature original This Is Knit designs, and include the pattern, the yarn to complete the project and a gift tag to attest to your knitting prowess. So if you know a deserving knitter (or are one yourself), what could make a better treat?
