What to give to relatives and colleagues for the New Year?

Of course, hand­made New Year’s sou­venirs should be neat and nec­es­sary. Gifts for chil­dren need to be con­sid­ered care­ful­ly. If these are things, then they should be as com­fort­able as pos­si­ble, not prick­ly. It is bet­ter to use hypoal­ler­genic yarn for knit­ting. Such yarn as cot­ton, vis­cose, silk, high qual­i­ty acrylic will appeal to the baby. Warm clothes are best knit­ted from meri­no wool or alpaca wool. In no case do not use mohair, ango­ra wool, polyamide, lurex for chil­dren’s clothes.

Check­ing wool for nat­u­ral­ness is sim­ple: when set on fire, nat­ur­al wool burns with ash­es, and arti­fi­cial wool turns into a plas­tic ball. You can also check the yarn for com­fort by run­ning a ball over your lips. On the lips, the skin is sen­si­tive, it imme­di­ate­ly reacts to prick­ly­ness, dis­com­fort.

If this is a toy, then it should be made of bright yarn, it’s good if the details move in it. You can link your favorite chil­dren’s car­toon char­ac­ter.

Do-it-your­self sou­venirs will delight rel­a­tives and col­leagues. But at work, you should not give friends inti­mate knit­ted gifts. You can also not guess with the size of hats, mit­tens, socks. There­fore, it is bet­ter for col­leagues to give ele­ments of New Year’s decor:

  • open­work cro­cheted nap­kins;
  • sou­venirs in the form of ani­mals — sym­bols of the year;
  • Christ­mas tree toys;
  • knit­ted Christ­mas trees in pots;
  • knit­ted planter.
