The Gift of Spinning
Today’s crafty gift idea is another new-to-JP Knit & Stitch item. Actually, it’s a bundle of items! We recently started carrying drop spindles and fiber for spinning (100% merino wool, Nube from Malabrigo), plus the excellent Respect the Spindle book. Set up your favorite crafter with the book, braid of fiber, and a spindle, and they’ll be making their own yarn in no time!
If the crafty person on your list learns better with hands on help, why not sign them up (or get them a gift certificate) for Yarn from Roving Magic: Drop Spindle Workshop, our new drop spinning class!
This Gift Guide was brought to you by Caroline (spinner + crafter + JPK&S-er)! She took that gorgeous photo, too!
*Number 20 in our annual series of DAILY gift ideas from your friends at JP Knit & Stitch. Stay tuned every day right here until December 24th for your daily dose of crafty inspiration. (Sort by “Crafty Gift Guide” under each post to see all in the series.)

Our last few crafty gift ideas have been relatively quick, perfect if you have a bunch of knit-worthy folks on your list. But, if you want a longer project, or have one extraordinarily special person on your list, you might consider hand knit socks! (We wanted to tell you about this with enough time to finish them!)
Malabrigo Sock (for awesome variegated colors), Cascade Heritage (for hearty nylon content), and Cephalopod Skinny Bugga (for rich semisolid colors and super softness) all make for great socks. And if you are looking for help, one of our newer books, Tow-Up 2-at-a-Time Socks is the perfect guide for making custom-sized socks.

Check out our newest yarn, the sport weight, machine washable Malabrigo Arroyo! Like a beefier version of Malabrigo Sock, Arroyo is 100% superwash merino wool, hand dyed in Malabrigo’s ever variable, always beautiful colors. We went with mostly fall-toned hues, some colorful multis, and a pop of pink!
We can’t wait to see the floaty sweaters, beautiful shawls, and super sophisticated baby projects you whip up with our newest yarn!
