Bags bags bags!

Something I’m always on the look out for is a great knitting bag – it needs to be big enough to hold my projects, durable and easy to clean when I inevitably spill something on it, and a long handle to sling over my shoulder when on the go. Plus, it goes without saying, it needs to be cute! So I’m so very excited about our newest totebags – check out these beauties!

Introducing: Alpaca Cloud Fingering Weight Yarn!

Do you like knitting and crocheting with alpaca yarn? I love it. Everything I make is so soft and light. I'm not a lace knitter, so when Alpaca Cloud Lace Yarn came out in such a stunning array of colors, I lamented that it was a bit too thin for anything I've got in my queue. Enter Alpaca Cloud Fingering Yarn, in such an amazing  palette and fingering weight for lightweight (but so warm!) sweaters, shawls, and amazing colorwork.

Introducing Big Art Knits!

I'm so excited to present my first-ever pattern collection, Big Art Knits! When we were planning collections for 2016, one of my suggestions was a collection that used really big, bulky yarns. I love how quickly they work up, the texture you get from even simple stitches, and just their big, oversized nature. They've got a lot of drama and a little goes a long way. That's why they're so perfect for home goods-they add a cozy feeling without overwhelming a room.

Mother’s Day Gift Guide: Ever Practical

Bouquets are beautiful, but they wilt and wither away after a few days. Chocolate lasts minutes before the box is empty and cards are everywhere during the holidays. My favorite gifts to give/receive are ones that last a little longer and create new experiences with their use. Yarn for a new project, a set of brand new needles or a collection of patterns to browse and work on over the next year will be lasting memories just as the act of making a present for someone brings them to mind constantly. My first pick is one of our Beginner Blanket Kits! Six different Preciosa color palettes (plus a cute tote) go with our beginner friendly, swoon-worthy knit and crochet blanket patterns.
