Mother’s Day Knitting Gifts

The ultimate guide to buying your Mum knitting gifts this Mother's Day.

So Mother's Day is getting closer and you want to get your Mum the perfect gift to make her feel loved on her special day don't you?

Every year I tend to get my Mum the same gift, well the same kind of gift. Either flowers or chocolates. It's basically like chicken or beef in flying terms.

Knitting isn't seen as a 'grandma' hobby anymore, it's becoming all the rage with younger people too. So if your Mum is interested in knitting like mine is, why not get her a gift with a purpose this year. She may even knit you a scarf or super-cool bobble hat, just in time for the winter chill. Whether your Mum is new to knitting or a total pro, you'll find something here to suit.

When is Mother's Day in 2016?

Sunday 8 May.

Or, if this works better for your memory, it's the second Sunday of May.
