Hand knitted gifts are one of a kind

Hand-knitted gifts show your love and consideration for the recipient as they can be time-consuming and very personal. 

Because when knitting something for a friend or a family member you really do take into consideration their style, their comfort level, and of course if you are making them a garment their measurements. 

And really who doesn’t love a one-of-a-kind unique gift that’s made just for them.
