The Best Ways To Treat A Special Mum (Knitty Style!)

The Best Ways To Treat A Special Mum (Knitty Style!)

Surprise an amazing lady with the most fabulous gifts around

Mothers are incredible - and we’re not just talking about our own mums but every mum. We think amazing people should be recognised with the perfect gift. Choosing a present can be hard, but we’ve come up with five fab ideas we know any knitting mum will love.

1. Buy yarn
We knitters are easily pleased and yarn is the quickest way to our hearts. Choose a luxury hand-dyed skein for a unique gift or opt for a project-in-a-ball yarn like a yarn cake. Do some sleuthing to find out her favourite fibres and colours.

2. Get sewing
It’s one of the tasks that many knitters enjoy the least. If you’re a dab-hand with a needle, why not offer to sew in the ends on a project or two? We know we’d appreciate it!

3. Free up time
Children are great, but their many demands mean there’s not always a lot of time for… well, anything really, but especially knitting. For older mums, there are other tasks that interrupt the best-laid knitting plans, too. Why not offer your services to free up some time, whether that’s babysitting younger tots or helping out with the chores?

Just in case you didn’t hear us the first time! And if you’re not sure what to buy, pick up a gift voucher for her to spend at her local yarn shop.

5. Choose handmade
Nothing is more personal than a homemade gift and us crafty types are sure to appreciate the love and effort put into making it. Here are a few project ideas to try:
