We suffer pangs of really, really wanting to learn how to knit well, especially after we peruse places like Etsy. Talk about knit-envy. The trouble is, our total output consists of about a dozen lopsided pot holders and a few sad little dishcloths. Not really the kind of crafting that inspires, right? The Plump Flump Beginner Knitting Kit ($24) teaches you how to craft cute little gifts for your nieces and nephews while improving your skills. Generosity motivated by selfish desires? We like it.
