EVEN WITCHES KNIT!
We had a fabulous weekend with Sandy Barnes from Shibui and Jane Slicer Smith with SigKnits & Trendsetter yarns. Thanks to out customers for making each event so fabulous. Your love of fiber and design is inspiring. We got to see a new fiber from Shibui that is perfect for spring and all season-wear as well. Yes, I know we have barely touched the fall and winter seasons and already spring yarns are being introduced. It is great to be a knitter or crocheter in today's world of fibers.
New Books & Magazines
Check out some great new books for fall. Love the hats and mittens in several new books and am intrigued by Twigg stitch. I am pouring over the Holiday Hats for Babies with McKinley in mind and have to admit that the Christmas Crochet is a bit intriguing.
Malabrigo Book 7: Rasta in Brooklyn is in STOCK & SO IS RASTA
Heron, a New Zealand Merino & Possum blend has arrived. We add this to the other Zealana yarns we have added this year. The blends with New Zealand Possum are light, yet very warm. The Bradley Hat takes only 1 skein of Zealana Air. Order 1 skein and receive a free pattern
