So have you seen our new Chroma yarn colors?
We’ve had the samples in the office for several months and we’ve been dying to show them to you! I think these are my favorite batch of colors we’ve put out – both the neutrals and the super cheery brights.
During the book sale, I reviewed the book Amigurumi at Home by Ana Paula Rimoli. I toiled over which pattern I would crochet – the teacup rug, the tooth pillow, the dog or cat footwarmers? In the end, the pattern I chose wasn’t any of the projects I highlighted in that post. I made a cloud pillow, and I named him Junior. Made in all single crochet, he was the fastest and most fun project I’ve made in quite some time.
Inspired by music and the spirit of adventurous knitting, I’m proud to present the Legato Dishcloth! It’s a bright, bold, and lively addition to any dishcloth collection, knit in our lovely CotLin yarn..
After a long (and hot) summer – it’s finally time to return back to cozy knits like sweaters, long layering garments and cowls to keep warm. And our new Burnished collection is chock-full of 16 designs to get you inspired for the cool, breezy autumn weather. Need a bit of inspiration on how to dress up these splendid knits? We’ve got 6 ways to wear Burnished here for you – let’s start with a cool-weather staple, the scarf!

ORANGE CRUSH: Warm, autumnal colors get a classic twist when paired with navy for a touch of contrast while the unexpected pop of bright orange in the form of daring pants makes a bold statement and pulls the look together.

I bought a new home!
No seriously, I did buy a full-size new home this summer, but I also bought a miniature house, too! Now I have to figure out how to furnish it.
My younger brother recently welcomed his first child, the glorious and wee Margot Sweetpea Marie Wells. With a name like that, I knew I would have to up the cuteness factor for the blanket I was making her.

I’ve been doing a lot of traveling this summer and have been looking forward to times when I can relax for a bit. So for my newest 52 Weeks of Dishcloth pattern, I decided I wanted to do a spa cloth to use when I have a little time to myself. So I came up with the Dreamy Spa Cloth.
