The Buzz at WEBS

This week, the staff at WEBS is buzzing about…

Left: There’s a potholder swap annually on Ravelry that I participated in the very first year. It was lots of fun! Not only did I get a set of amazing potholders from all over the country, but it pushed me into one of my first designs, Disc-Disc. This year I got the itch to participate again and when I just couldn’t find a pattern I really liked, the inspiration bug bit me once again. This is my HOTbutton Potholder pattern and it’s free through the end of May, 2013. Enjoy! > Sara D.

Right: I’m crazy about the Needle Nanny we carry now. Not only are they adorable, but the super strong magnet is SO useful to have on hand! I’ve been using mine as a makeshift button on my sweater at work all week. I’m working on a crochet pattern that weaves in a lot of ends, and having the Needle Nanny attached to my sleeve or collar vastly trumps my usual method of stabbing it into the nearest cushioned surface, which I promptly forget! > Kerry T.

This blanket has been a year and a half in the making and I am so happy it is done! It is a very special thank you gift for a dear family friend. I bought the yarn, Blue sky Alpacas Dyed cotton, over the course of a year, one color at a time. The blanket used a total of 28 skeins! The pattern is the Chevron Baby Blanket from the Purl Bee, but enlarged to fit a single sized bed. The finished measurements are 62” X 121”, slightly stretched. We are going to visit soon so I can personally deliver this blanket. I didn’t want to trust it to the mail and I also didn’t want to pay postage. The blanket weighs about 10lbs! Until then it will rest on this bed where I can look at it every so often. > Amy S.

    The lovely colors combined with the graphic chevrons makes this a striking blanket. I’m sure this will be a treasured gift!

    I’m making a straight double crochet stitch about that size for my bed with random girly colors. Yours is beautiful!!
