Wonderfully sturdy and reliable, the knit Mrs. Merryweather Dishcloth will work until the job is done, the tea is poured and the tea cakes are out of the oven! The two-tone effect of the two yarn colors creates a subtle depth to this stitch on both right and wrong sides. The right side features a smooth fabric, perfect for polishing while the wrongs side has rows of shimmering pearl bumps to give you extra scrubbing power. This woven linen stitch might be time consuming but that makes it all the better for an evening in front of the telly with your favorite program!Read more »

I absolutely LOVE rosewood needles – I’ve had various pairs over the years and they’re always the ones I’ve reached for first for projects. They just feel so nice in my hand – slick, light, but sturdy. So I’ve been begging for us to release a set since I started here…and my dreams have now come true!Read more »
Growing up, both my mom & my grandma were always knitting and crocheting – they had learned both so they didn’t feel any need to keep projects to one or the other. When I first got interested in yarn crafts, my mom showed me how to make the dishcloths she and my grandmother always made. Of course I tried it and even though my newbie misshapen pieces were not works of art, I enjoyed making them and used them for years. So I thought I’d share the pattern with everyone doing the 52 Weeks of Dishcloths!Read more »

You could get to talk to that designer for an upcoming podcast, and ask her/him the questions on your mind. Email us at email@example.com. We’d love to hear from you!Read more »
I always try to keep a small project on my hooks or needles as a sort of crafty “palate cleanser” while I’m working on intense, long-term projects. I’ve noticed that it helps to keep me motivated and excited about those big pieces if I can take a mini break and finish something else quickly. My newest favorite mini knit is Purl Soho’s free Garter Flap Hat (teeny tiny baby sized).Read more »
