Hi Knit Picks Lovers!
We’re exploring a new format for our podcast, and would love your contributions to upcoming shows. We’ll be posting about topics and if they pertain to you, we’d love to hear from you! Here is the first:
The Impractical Crafter
Did you knit a footstool that flattened beneath your feet, or crocheted a bikini never to be worn?
We’re looking for examples of knitting/crochet or any other yarn crafts you’ve made that have no practical purpose whatsoever.
Email your story to email@example.com. We’d love to see a photo of your impractical craft, if you have one.
If we feature your story on our podcast, you’ll win a fabulous yarn sampler!
Well our Yarn Madness is over…and Wool of the Andes came out on top with 60% of the vote!
The 52-weeks of dishcloths is been a fun challenge for me. I hunted for the perfect stitch pattern to use in creating something different and fun. I’ve always thought that a dishcloth should have some texture for scrubbing; well I achieved that with the pleated stripes in the Triple Chocolate Dishcloth pattern.
Eight new colors are here to spice up your knits! Stroll Brights Special Reserve is the same wonderful sock yarn base in set of super bright colorways. Remember, Special Reserve means they’ll only be around while we have stock so grab some while you can! I snatched one ball of Pucker as soon as we opened the box of samples because it’s just SO BRIGHT and wonderful, there’s no way I could pass it up. I knew right away that I wanted to do a Color Affection shawl with a bright pop of color and the screaming pink was perfect for it.
