The Buzz at WEBS

Even if we aren’t all knitters, we’re still connected to yarn somehow in our lives. This week, the staff at WEBS is buzzing about gifts we’ve received, projects we’d like to knit, and a very exciting new book.

My co-workers gave me this beautiful afghan that they knit in Berroco Vintage as a wedding gift for me and my husband, who also works at WEBS.  I love it so so much.  It’s incredibly soft, machine washable and they couldn’t have picked better colors!  They also did a great job keeping their plans a secret at work.  I never suspected a thing! > Lindsey T.

My mom made this hat out of Madelinetosh Tosh Vintage in Charcoal for me. I really like how soft is is and it’s warm without suffocating my head! I can wash it and dry it too without it shrinking. < Jeff G.

Madelinetosh Merino Light in Fathom - My wife recently knit me a hat with this yarn and I love it. The colors are great and it feels really nice on my head. It’s warm and stylish! > Ken T.

Valley Yarns 448 Fiddlehead Set and Southwick Yarn – I packed this into an order the other day and was really into how Emma used the fiddlehead motif in the design of the mitts and beret. I like that she chose Southwick because it is soft and lightweight for the Spring. > Angela Z.

One of our store managers, Leslie Ann Bestor, wrote Cast On Bind Off, a book all about the many ways to cast on and bind off for projects. I love how it’s spiral bound so it lays flat on the couch while I’m following along. I thought I was done buying knitting reference books, but this one I just had to have. Nothing else in my collection is so comprehensive. > Grace H.

    Beautiful everything!  I especially like the afghan!  Is that a published pattern that they used, and, if so, could you post a link to it?
