Beginner Balnket Kit - KnitPicks.com
Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Ever Practical

Bouquets are beautiful, but they wilt and wither away after a few days. Chocolate lasts minutes before the box is empty and cards are everywhere during the holidays. My favorite gifts to give/receive are ones that last a little longer and create new experiences with their use. Yarn for a new project, a set of brand new needles or a collection of patterns to browse and work on over the next year will be lasting memories just as the act of making a present for someone brings them to mind constantly. My first pick is one of our Beginner Blanket Kits! Six different Preciosa color palettes (plus a cute tote) go with our beginner friendly, swoon-worthy knit and crochet blanket patterns.
