February 2017 Calendar

Happy February! When the winter doldrums start getting to us (will the snow ever end?), one of our favorite things to do is play around with pretty stitch patterns. Perfect for this is our lovely Tuff Puff which really shows off those stitches! For our free downloadable February calendar we’re featuring some swatches we’ve knit up recently. The stitch pattern in Mint is the  Diagonal Rib stitch from Up, Down, All-Around Stitch Dictionary and the one in Cream is a variation on a Broken Rib Stitch (knit 1×1 rib for 3 rows, then 1 row of just purl stitches). We hope you find inspiration all month long with our yarn “doodling”!

New kits for easy crafting

I’m a one-click type of shopping gal. Hours spent perusing, coordinating, compiling? Nooooo, thank you. If I could, I would do all my shopping with one stroke of the almighty mouse: one click and poof! There’s my spring wardrobe! Another click and viola! There’s my living room redecorating supplies.

That’s why I love our kits so much – they make crafty shopping so much easier. We do the coordinating and compiling; you do the crafting (and saving)! Here are a few new kits I’ve been eyeing:

I recently binged watch the entire Agatha Christy Poirot detective series. The Mystery varn value pack in our bouncy and lush Paragon yarn is full of luxurious hues refined enough for even the most fastidious Belgian gentleman’s taste.
