‘Tis the season for gifting all things shiny and bright.  Still not quite sure what to get the knitter on your list?  We have you covered with the latest and greatest tools plus gadgets that will make a knitter swoon with delight.  From winding yarn efficiently and quickly to knitting with comfort and ease, Knitter’s Pride and ChiaGoo offer quality and ingenuity in a full line up of accessories.

Make a knitter’s wish come true this Christmas with one of our TOP TEN GIFT IDEAS-


What dreams are made of…the premium classic starter set from Knitter’s Pride includes nine pairs individually contained in a sturdy black jacquard case.  Symfonie Dreamz needles are finely-crafted from laminated birch, colour-coded for easy size identification and range from 3 mm to 8 mm.  Pick your preferred length of ten or fourteen inch straight needles.


Kris Kringle’s top pick for sock knitters- the Karbonz Sock Kit holds six of the most popular sizes for keeping toes toasty warm in sizes from 2 mm to 3.25 mm.  These needles are made from ultralight carbon fibre with finely-tapered brass tips, and best of all….will not snap under pressure.


With more and more of our favorite luxury yarns being sold in skeins, this is a must-have tool.  The Yarn Winder from Knitter’s Pride clamps onto any straight table edge or counter top, and with the flip of the handle will merrily whip a skein into a cake.


Did you know that Knitter’s Pride originally designed and manufactured paintbrushes?  That gave the company a leading edge when it came to comfort and form in the knitting needle industry.  The Marblz Interchangeable Deluxe Set is much more than just a box of calorie-free eye candy.  This set flashes nine pairs of rainbow-coloured tips sized from 3.50 mm to 8 mm, plus four cords, and eight end caps to hold your stitches in place.  Securely tucked inside a stylish faux leather case, Marblz needles are engineered in small batches of glossy acrylic, hand-mixed to create one-of-a-kind patterns.



Knitter’s Pride takes care of the budding knitter on your gift list with a Beginner’s Craft Kit  featuring a pair of acrylic knitting needles, a crochet hook, scissors, darning needles, tape measure and a wooden dolly to spark a youngster’s creative spirit.



ChiaGoo offers their uber-popular Spin Bamboo Interchangeable Set with the new 10 cm needle tips.  This versatile set allows a knitter to switch over from a twenty-four or thirty-two inch cord right down to a sixteen inch cord without having to buy additional tips.  Choose from the smaller range or step up to the complete collection which houses every size from 2.75 mm to 10 mm and includes extra bonus tools in a well organized fabric case.



One of the most-requested items on a knitter’s wish list, ChiaGoo’s Yarn Swift, makes the task of winding skeins so much easier.  Crafted from durable hardwood, this Amish-style swift assembles easily without screws or glue and features anti-slip pads to keep it sitting securely on any table top.   Four adjustable pegs accommodate all skein sizes.  When not in use, this yarn swift folds up and can conveniently be stored in a flat box.



Another beauty from Knitter’s Pride, the Symfonie Rose Crochet Set is a gift for those who enjoy holiday bling.  Packaged in an attractive cigar-style box, each hook is crafted from birch with a rich mahogany finish and finely-detailed with a Swarovski Crystal.



Avoid eye strain with the Magma Pattern Holder from Knitter’s Pride.  It folds up just like a book cover when not in use and has an adjustable easel-style setting.  Lightweight and portable, this popular tool comes complete with one large magnet strip for easy chart reading, three small but powerful magnets for holding a pattern in place (especially great while knitting outside on windy days) plus a pen and large pouch pocket for storage.



The Cadillac of all needle sets, and a NEW addition from Knitter’s Pride just in time for holiday giving, the Royale Interchangeable Needles Collection merges all the top design elements and streamlines them into one truly gorgeous gift set.  Each needle is crafted in their popular laminated birch base, colour-coded in a fancy new striped pattern and well-honed with shiny brass tips.  The combination of wood and metal together will give a truly unique knitting experience, lightning quick while staying warm to the touch.  Cords and connectors are stored in a luxurious silk pouch and the gift box is decorated with a Parisian image in a lovely pearlescent finish.

On The Go With Knitter’s Pride

Saturday, January 24th, 2015

From a knitter’s perspective, a vacation in the sunny south is more than lounging around a pool with the latest suspense novel or signing up for yoga classes on the beach at sunrise, its carefully planned one-on-one time with a few choice knitting projects that have been waiting in the queue.  First there is the travel project, a simple scarf or mindless pair of socks for the long wait at the airport or watching the scenery go by from the car window.  Then there is the destination project, an intricate lace shawl or a complex cabled pullover for that much-needed downtime in a tropical paradise.  Packing the necessary knitting tools for travel requires creative use of compact space and detailed organization (have you ever tried to locate a substitute for a lost cable needle in a remote resort town?)

Knitter’s Pride, a company known for its gorgeous needles and hooks, now carries a fashionable line of travel-ready cases and bags in three trendy faux leather design options to keep your gear well-organized and close at hand.  If a relaxing holiday is in your future, take a look at what Knitter’s Pride has to offer for knitters on the go-

Our world is delightfully dappled and speckled with fragments of colour, the brighter the better.  Colour boosts our energy, improves our mood, increases productivity and for the most part we tend to create a personal association with a particular shade on the spectrum.  For a knitter, the artistry of the tools is equally as important as the beauty of the yarn and thankfully, we have come a long way from the dull grey plastic needles that were once the mainstay of our craft.  Enter a vibrant new generation of knitting needles, Marblz by Knitter’s Pride, reminiscent of those showy orbs swirled with colour that we carried to school in a drawstring pouch and played with at recess.  Manufactured from premium acrylic, Marblz needles are soft to grip, flexible, featuring the smoothest most well-honed points in the industry.  A clever hand churning method means no two needles are exactly alike in colour patterning, and the splashy array of hues makes for easy size recognition.

Available now at your lys-
