Handmade Knit Clothing and Gifts


NOTE: I've already accepted all the custom orders I'm able to complete for Christmas 2016, although I'm still able to ship in-stock items. PLEASE NOTE: I do NOT keep picture stockings in stock; they are always custom orders. I do keep a waiting list, and will be happy to add you to it. However, I would not be able to guarantee anything earlier than 2017. Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Primarily Practical Knits offers a variety of handmade knit clothing and gifts, with an emphasis on easy-care items that will fit your family’s busy lifestyle. You can choose from classic knit clothing such as mittens and hats, or from more decorative items such as personalized Christmas stockings.


My years of experience have allowed me time to learn the best finishing techniques, so I can guarantee my knits will last. Visit About Primarily Practical Knits for more information about my knitting history and my standards for my products.

Handmade Knit Clothing

The Handmade Knits page offers a general introduction that applies to all my products. The category pages will help you find specific items. Ready-made Handmade showcases new items that may or may not become regular offerings. Usually they are things that I knit for fun, but if enough people like the style, I may consider knitting more. There is also a section with knits that are currently offered at discount prices.


Some of my favorites to knit are berets (in wool or acrylic). They can go alone, or with matching mittens and scarves. Handmade knit clothing can be made with different yarns, depending on how cold your climate gets. A thick wool yarn will make a warmer item than a thin acrylic yarn.

Handmade Knit Gifts

Knit items are always thoughtful gifts. For many, you won't need to know a recipient's exact size. In addition to clothing, the Household Items and Custom Christmas Stockings pages have some great ideas for handmade knit gifts. Choose something that is easy care, and your gift will be used again and again. I also offer gift certificates in any denomination.


My knitted dishcloths are especially useful for gift-giving. They're soft, absorbent, and will last forever. Give one or two for small gifts (teachers, party favors) or several in a rainbow of colors for a housewarming.

Other Handmade Knit Clothing and Gifts

Custom orders allow you the opportunity to choose individual variations on any of the items I regularly make. I will occasionally take custom orders for different items. Details of custom orders can be worked out by email or over the phone. Once I understand what you're looking for, I will quote a price. If you agree, then we'll arrange a 50% deposit and I will proceed with your order.
