10 unique gift ideas for crocheters
1. Unique handcrafted crochet hooks from @DLfamilyWorkshop
Honestly the most beautiful crochet hooks I’ve ever seen. I was gifted a handmade wooden crochet hook with lavender flowers in the handle and I love how comfortable they are. These unique hooks are handmade by a lovely family from Russia. My hook arrived within 8 days (I’m located in Europe) and shipping takes about 16 days to the USA.

If you love gradient yarn cakes, you’re going to love this hand dyed yarn from Katrin. She really stands out from other dyers because of her unique gradient yarn cakes. She offers four blend options varying in price: merino pure, a superwash merino, merino twin which is perfect for sweaters and things that are washed very often, merino silk, a fluffy and shiny yarn which drapes really wonderful and has a nice sheen because of the silk content, and merino silk cashmere, a luxury yarn base which is very comfortable to skin contact. Shipping to the USA takes about 1-2 weeks. I was gifted two cakes: a Merino Red Cherry cake and Merino Silk Romance cake with which I made a scarf. Here are some of the favorite color options on my wish list:

I just found this site and this is my first email I received. I think I’m in love already. Everything is so beautiful and they don’t look so awful hard to do which is what I’m looking for. I had a stroke and was finding it hard to crochet but now after keeping trying I think I’ve got my crocheting back. I enjoy it so much but I don’t want to tackle anything too hard as I get so discouraged when I find I can’t make something. I’ve started so many things only to end up ripping all out and trying something else. I’m working on an afghan now and it’s very simple so I’m really enjoying doing it.
