Introducing Caspian!

We’re really excited to share our newest needle colorway, Caspian!

caspian

Caspian is a beautiful blend of soothing blues and greens that mix together to make a very striking needle.  They’re perfect for wood needle lovers, as they use our strong-and-smooth birch laminate wood and are polished to a soft sheen.  We’ve also created a new emerald-colored cable to match your needles.

We’ve been Sunstruck!

We are so excited to introduce you to our newest type of needles, Sunstruck!

These gorgeous needles are a blonde twist on our Harmony needles – it’s the same laminated birch wood as the Harmony needles, but with a beautiful sun kissed look to them.  We’ve all completely fallen in love with them & we think you will too. They are available in interchangeable, fixed circular, and straight needles – perfect for any project.

My MA yarn crawl

If you follow me on Twitter, you may have seen that I spent last week in one of my very favorite places in the world – Massachusetts!

 MA trip

I lived in MA for a couple of years and Boston (go Sox!) feels like my 2nd home. So when an idea of a trip to visit yarn stores came up, I jumped right on it.  See my old friends and drink massive amounts of Dunkin’ Donuts iced coffee while going to a bunch of yarn shops?  Sign me up!
