May News: cozy cotton knits & crochet kits

Knit Picks May Launch

Ok. Those may not be the ACTUAL lyrics, but you catch my drift. It’s freakin’ MAY people!! We’re ready to sit in the sunshine, sip some iced tea, and make our summer project plans. Oh, and maybe sneak a road trip or two into the mix. What better project to take on the road than something small & compact, like a pair of fun textured socks? If you’re on the hunt for fresh new sock patterns, you’ll want to take a gander at one of our two newest collections, Splendid Soles.

Splendid Soles

Knit Picks Fontana Socks

Fontana Knee High Socks – knit in Stroll Tweed

While not the smallest project in the collection, nor the most warmweather friendly, I couldn’t help but to highlight my favorite pattern from this collection. Since I am not a “sock” knitter (yet…), by the time I finish this project maybe they will be weather appropriate attire. The rest of the collection consists of some of the coolest textures and concepts I’ve ever seen in a handmade sock. Click here to see all the Splendid Soles patterns.


Knit Picks Tranquility Collection

Pillows from the Tranquility collection

As a self-described homebody, I LOVE to work on projects that can be enjoyed by my whole family. Blankets, pillows, and rugs, oh my! This collection is like a breath of fresh air for your entire home.  The subtle colors and soft fibers make me want to pile every piece on my bed, with a light breeze coming through the open window, and take an epic nap. That’s how blankets should make you feel, right? Peruse the entire Tranquility Collection here.

    Do you guys no longer sell the nickle plated in a set?

  2. Caroline / May 2, 2018

    What if I just want to try your needles? Would you recommend buying just one interchangeable needle set?
