Enjoy the starry night with the Starry Stole – now in kits!

Nothing quite captures the human imagination like the brilliant night sky. There's something magical about those glittering lights against the inky veil of night. Bring that magic into your knitting with the Starry Stole! Beads transform this otherwise soft and simple stole into a field of twinkling stars. The simplicity of the pattern makes the Starry Stole a wonderful first beaded knitting project. The best part is that as a kit, the beads come included, so you can get going on the pattern right away or package the kit as a gift for a new-to-beads knitter.

Double Twist Cowl – Twice the Fun

I work for a yarn company, but I can't stand most wool. While it would be a stretch to dub me a Barbie (my preferred outfit is sweatpants and I don't even own a brush), I am known around the office for my fastidious skin. Even the thought of wool makes it itch. Thankfully, we carry a wool yarn that is kind enough even for my royal skin, and it was recently kitted into a stunning cowl. My co worker Jenny penned a clever little haiku in honor of the grand event: Double crochet cowl, you are even soft enough for Princess Heidi And here is the kit (not on me .. I gave up modeling a long time ago):

Among the Bamboo Blanket

Blankets are one of my favorite go-to projects for baby showers and little ones - there is just something really special about putting one's time and efforts into a larger project like a blanket or throw. And even though it is a bigger commitment than say, a sweater or a hat, I like knowing that a blanket is sure to get a lot of use and will be there, even as the little one gets older. I tend to lean towards simple stitches for these larger projects, but the super adorable Among the Bamboo Blanket is definitely tempting me to reconsider my simple ways the next time I need a baby blanket project. My favorite part? This pattern is available as two different kits: a colorwork version and a knit/purl textured version! Among the Bamboo Blanket (colorwork version)

When geology meets yarn…

A moraine is a deposit of rocks and debris left by glaciers as they advance and recede. Moraines often add some really interesting terrain to the existing land, resulting in crazy looking hills and land that looks  folded or striated. Glaciers make for some pretty spectacular geologic features - moving bits of the Earth from place to place, bit by bit, blurring the line between 'here' and 'there'. Musing on those glacial effects resulted in the Moraine Pullover! It might be hard to see where to draw a comparison, but in the stitch patterning of Moraine, each 'point' recedes and advances through colors, leaving its mark in the next ripple.
