With Mother’s Day only a month away we thought we would give you some ideas for gifts you can easily knit up in time for the day, popular knitting kits to buy for your mum and lovely days out for you and her together!

1. A set of Knitting Needles

Addi Click Bamboo set 550-7 (1)


This luxurious set of bamboo needles from Addi are interchangeable circular. This means the set comes with 3 cable lengths and all the needle sizes from 3.5mm to 8mm and that you can swap and change which needles you attach to the cables. Ones you have got this set you won’t be needing anything else in terms of knitting needles, unless you are knitting really fine or really chunky stuff! It’s the ideal luxury present for a dedicated knitter. Buy your mum a set of Addi needles by clicking here.
