I have used my years of experience to put together this lovely knitting gift set that is equally suitable for a beginner or a more experienced crocheter.
Even better, the whole set is eco-friendly and entirely plastic free!
- 10 bamboo marking pins
- a responsibly-sourced organic cotton drawstring storage and project bag
- a 100% recycled knitter’s notepad which can be personalised for the recipient
- 2 10m mini yarn skeins
- 2 gift tags up-cycled from waste cardboard
The bamboo marking pins are perfect for holding sections together when joining the seams of knitted items. The natural texture of the bamboo keeps the pin from sliding out and the tips are specially shaped to prevent the pins from splitting your yarn.
The drawstring bag is approximately 26cm x 32cm (or 10 x 13 inches).
The knitter’s notepad is approximately 89mm x 120mm (or 3½ x 5 inches) and contains approximately 50 plain white sheets. The inside cover features handy rulers in cm and inches.
The mini yarn skeins are perfect for experimenting with a stitch or making a small motif. They will be chosen at random from my stash of natural fibres – no synthetic (plastic) yarns here! They will vary in colour from the examples shown, but will be two different weights and two different fibres for maximum fun. The skeins are labelled with their details.
The tags are hand-punched by me from cereal packets and the like that would otherwise go to be recycled, and are therefore very eco-friendly. The tags are single-sided, the other side being the printed face of the original carton. They are strung with 100% recycled cotton thread.
Everything is presented in a smart, reusable box made of recycled material, with a full guide to the contents included for the recipient.

The notepad will be printed with the text “my knitting notes” as shown in the main pictures above, or you can choose to personalise it with your own text or dedication – for example “Granny’s knitting notes” or “Christmas Knitting Projects”.
If choosing personalisation, please specify the *exact* text you would like to appear on the front of the notepad. There is space for a maximum of three lines of text with up to approximately 10-16 characters. Please take great care in what you type, as I will use the text exactly as you write it, including your capitalisation, punctuation and spelling.
Personalised items cannot be returned for a refund.
If you’d like this item sent directly to someone else as a gift, that’s no problem, just choose this option when checking out and I will remove price details from the package. You can also include a gift message at checkout for free.
If you’d like to have the set gift-wrapped, please tick the option above. I use 100% recycled tissue and pretty paper tape, with a 100% recycled cotton tie and an up-cycled cardboard tag to complete your eco-friendly gift.
