The Buzz at WEBS

Week after week I get the enjoyment of talking with my co-workers about all of the wonderful yarns, patterns, tools and accessories that we’re excited about. Each week, I’d like to share what we’re buzzing about at WEBS.

Enjoy!

The Buzz at WEBS

1. Baby Blueprint Crochet – I can’t wait to try out some of the patterns in Robyn Chachula’s new book. I have been eyeing it ever since it appeared on our shelves. The patterns are not only adorable but also modern and stylish. I particularly love the baby Ugg boots! > Liz A.

2. Gingher Designer Series Ella No. 4 Embroidery Scissors – I think I gasped a little when these first arrived on my desk. Super sharp and pointy with the striking black and white print. > Dena C.

3. Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top – I recently spun this up in the Cottage Garden colorway and it was a joy to spin. I love the finished yarn and can’t wait to get some more! (I’m thinking the spilled ink colorway.) > Mary K.-H.

4. Frabjous Fibers Hand Dyed Merino Top – Both a coworker and I have spun with it and we both found it to be a real delight. It’s so soft and easy to draft, and the colors are so luminous! I navajo plied it to make a really exciting self-striping yarn, but it’s gorgeous any way you work with it. > Kirsten H.

5. Clover Locking Stitch Markers – Great for so many things, marking front/back of projects, knitting stitch markers, maybe even earrings. Always have these on hand. > Gail C.

6. Alice Starmore’s Book of Fair Isle Knitting – I was recently reminded of how much I like Fair Isle. This book has a huge collection of charts and a wonderful center section of photos that remind me to find color combinations in my everyday surroundings. > Tina M.

7. Blue & White Striped Dishtowels designed by Barbara Elkins – I’ve woven a set of towels once before with Valley Yarns 8/2 Cotton Linen and love how soft, yet durable they are year after year. Here’s my excuse to make another set. > Dena C.

8. Valley Yarns Charlemont – I have used it to weave with – great on both rigid heddle and multi-harness. The drape and sheen are beautiful, the hand luxurious. And I’ve started a pair of socks with the Kettle Dye which is just wonderful. I love the way the color shifts through it. This yarn is versatile! > Leslie Ann B.
