Charity Spotlight: CLICK for Babies

Have you ever seen a newborn wearing a purple cap, or gone to a maternity ward to see teeny purple caps being worn on all the tiny heads of babies? These caps are there thanks to “CLICK for Babies”, an organization that facilitates the distribution of caps made by crafters of all varieties, in hopes to raise awareness for the “Period of PURPLE Crying” or “Shaken Baby Syndrome” prevention. Christine Baker, Program Coordinator for Period of PURPLE Crying at Seattle Children’s Hospital, answers a few questions about the caps, and how you can start making them, too!

5 Favorite Books: Lace Knitting and Crochet

Do you knit lace? Personally, it terrifies me. I’ve tried it a few times, but between the intricate charts and constant yarn-overs, I get very confused, make mistakes, and often end of ripping my whole project back to the beginning, where I sit baffled at how anyone actually does this. I like lace in small doses: a panel here and there to complement the rest of a (simple) knitted project. I’m working my way up to Estonian shawls in very small increments, and when I look at books about lace, I dare myself to go forward, “lifelines” in hand. Here are five books from the Knit Picks shelves I love to page through. You might enjoy them, too! At 40% off in our current book sale, why not pick one up and cast-on (or dream, like me, of casting on). Our book sale is on, for only a bit longer!

“Lace Yarn Studio” is a fun book with a collection of patterns from varied designers. From smaller projects to larger sweaters, you can work your way up to complicated projects and learn a bit more about lace yarn, in the process!
