Arriving in the store this morning! This 16-page booklet features 3 fabulous first-time crochet projects and plenty of helpful photos and instructions.
Our doors open at 10am. See you in a couple hours!
Karen found a fun use for the Noro rainbow rolls of pencil roving we recently stocked: thrummed mittens! These will keep your hands extra warm this winter and the thrums peek through in a fun gradient when you rip from the roll as you go.
This is a popular project, too. A quick search for ‘thrummed mittens’ on Ravelry returns over 100 patterns!
Got a few hours? You could make a pair of mittens!
We recently completed this pair of Twinkle Mittens (pattern sold in store) with a new-to-us bulky yarn, Kaleidoscope. We like the gentle gradient in addition to the value — we also knit up a matching hat for these two mittens with one skein!
This tool just arrived in the store over the weekend: it’s basically the Swiss army knife of crochet hooks. Perfect for a traveling project bag for quick fixes in any weight of yarn.
Each of these has four crochet hooks, one set for larger projects and one set for smaller projects. But why not have both?
A recent addition to the store, yarn keys are nice to have to keep track of your label for a specific skein – because it hooks right on to a strand in the ball. Don’t lose track of the essential information about your yarn, such as color, dye lot, or washing instructions!
You could also use these handy tools to attach a pattern to a skein you have a plan for, too!
