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!

Stuff We Love: Aromatic Cedar Gift Set

Whether you have a wee problem with wool moths or you just want your knits to smell like wonderful sun-warmed woods, the Aromatic Cedar Gift Set is all you need to spruce up your woolens. I store my finished sweaters in a cedar chest at home and am instantly transported back to the first day of every winter when my mother would unpack her sweaters from storage and give me a big, scratchy hug that smelled like cedar sachets - so I make sure that all of my sweaters continue that tradition. I'm also in the middle of a long-term war against wool moths and packing my knits away swaddled in cedar helps to protect them against those fluttering sneaks.

Stuff We Love: Bee Naturals Cuticle & Nail Oil

Knitting, crocheting, weaving and spinning are all what we call handcrafts, major emphasis on the hand part of that description so maintenance is the name of the game! You can't work your magic without healthy, happy hands and the Bee Naturals Cuticle and Nail Oil is just the ticket for strong nails. I like to rub a good coating on each nail just before bed so that it has plenty of time to soak in and hydrate. I can't get enough of the fresh, herby lemon, lavender and tea tree oil scent and I absolutely find myself looking forward to my little nighttime routine! It's such a calming way to end the day and I know my hands will be in tip-top shape when I wake up. Save 40% off with our tool sale!

Stuff We Love: Clover Pom-pom Maker

I have to admit, I have an unnatural appreciation for a good pom-pom...well, obsession might be the more appropriate description! There is nothing quite as satisfying as topping off a newly finished knit hat with a big, chunky pom-pom. In my world, there isn't a pom-pom that is too big or too fluffy!

Stuff We Love: Soak Wash Flatter Spray

Did you see that select tools are up to 40% off for a limited time? It's a great way to stock up on some important items that can help take your projects to the finish line. I'm always amazed at how a little tool (like a row counter, for $1.99!) can make a knitting project go so much faster. There's so many items that you never think you need until you have them, and can't wait to use them again and again. One item I use constantly is the Soak Flatter Spray.

New Mugs!
Mugging for the Camera

Our new Knit Picks mugs are here and I'm so thrilled with how they turned out! It was a long process to turn them from ideas and sketches into actual objects but ultimately very satisfying. Turns out it's really cool to drink coffee out of a mug you had a hand in designing, who knew? And it's always awesome to add some crafty love to everyday objects. I wanted to give you all a little peek into our process for designing these mugs.
