This week the staff is buzzing about…
1. Spud & Chloe at the Farm – This book has all the patterns you need to make your own little farm at home. I can’t even really call them patterns, since they’re so much more than that. Each character comes to life with their own descriptive back story. Aside from the great projects, this book also has a comic-strip style, fun and creative story that appears on each page with wonderful illustrations. The more I look at this book, the more I need to knit a Spud of my very own. > Grace H.
2. Skacel addi Turbo Lace Circular Needles – A customer gave me the tip to use a very fine (000-00, 32″-40″) lace circular needles for a life line. Works great. > Marion H.
3. One of the most beloved tools that we offer, those who have discovered the benefits of using Highlighter Tape when working with a pattern swear by it. I am always amazed at the simplicity of this product paired with the passion from its users. The next time you are struggling to keep your place in a pattern, think about picking up some highlighter tape! > Kathy E.
4. Anzula Squishy is yet another amazing hand dyed nuanced semi-solid yarn. The hand is heart-stopping-ly similar to Tosh Pashmina or Shalimar Breathless, which must be touched to be believed. Squishy lives up to its name and then some. In preparation for writing this I spent a moment alone with the yarn, choosing my favorites and I simply cannot put the teal back (shocker, I know)! > Cara S.
5. Fishermen’s Sweaters by Alice Starmore – Such an inspiring book of classic, but fascinating sweaters for men, women and children. There are lots of unisex sweaters with simple shapes that highlight special stitchwork. And, oddly enough, I really love the dockside styling that really put the sweaters in context. > Kirsten H.
