Knitting is a great way of passing the time, whether you do it to make clothes for yourself or loved ones, or whether you do it for charity. My Auntie Susan used to knit squares for cats who were at the local animal shelter and she even had her picture in the local paper, knitting needles in her hands and also holding up the square she was knitting.
If you're after a bit of a different subscription for someone who loves being crafty and doing something like knitting, you could take a look at Into the Blue. They have a couple of knitting gifts.
Monthly Knitting Subscriptions
There's a gift wrapped mystery knitting box every month for three months. Each box has the yarn, knitting pattern and buttons, plus some extra surprises, and you can choose from a Baby Box, a Child Box or a Ladies Box. The company behind the subscriptions is family run; the team hand-picks the yarns, patterns and accessories. And you can access the Facebook group, where knitters help each other out and offer lots of encouragement, share advice and ideas. Visit Into the Blue here to find out more
