A few small items

I’m happy to introduce you to three new items in the store that are sure to please. The first is a nifty felted, zippered pouch by one of my favorite vendors, Frabjous Fibers. Made by hand in Nepal, they are fully lined and are slim enough to slip into a knitting bag or tote bag. Perfect for notions and other small items that need safe-keeping, these pouches are easy on the wallet, making them perfect for gift-giving. Although we carry four different colors, the pink one is my favorite. This might sound a little crazy, but it looks to me like each sheep has a slightly different facial expression!

Tired of the same old shawl pin styles? JUL Designs has created some innovative leather closures for your cardigans, shawls and scarves. This clever design features screws that safely and securely keep your garments stylishly in place.

Although we have an extensive button collection in the store, I’m always looking for new and interesting additions. Martha Sunderland, the owner of Favour Valley Woodworking in New Hampshire, hand crafts buttons in varying shapes and size from locally-sourced woods like American Beech, Dawn Redwood, Purple Lilac, cherry, pear and blueberry. These are store-only items so you must come visit to appreciate them. When Martha delivered our order a few weeks ago, there was much excitement and enthusiasm from staff. When you see them, you’ll understand why. These buttons are truly special items and worthy of your hand knit creations.

As always, thank you for your continued support. We wouldn’t be here without you!

The Buzz at WEBS – June 24, 2011

This week the staff is buzzing about…

1. Pagewood Farm Glitterati is a new yarn with a lot of personality! It may be a bit over the top for some, but I love the colors and all the ribbon & sparkle! > Kathy E.

2. Buttons by Malea’s Pottery – Our Office Manager, Malea, makes these wonderful hand made porcelain buttons that are available in the store. They range from $6-$14 a card which is super affordable for hand made buttons and they have the most beautiful craftsmanship. As with all of the buttons we carry, these are only available in the store and not on our website.

3. Noro Aya – I like the soft, summery fiber content, and deals on new Noro yarns don’t happen every day. I’m stashing a bag of color 5 for a simple all-seasons cardi. > Kirsten H.

4. Valley Yarns Ruffled Socks – I know it’s my pattern, but I have to buzz about the Valley Yarns Ruffled Socks. I’m so excited to have finally finished my own pair so I can wear them…except it’s now June. I’m glad I discovered this heel technique (found in the Encyclopedia of Needlework) because I think it will be my stand-by for all my future socks. It was lots of fun to design and knit. Kristin L.
