Sale Yarn Sneak Preview

Ella Rae Rustic Lace

Meet Ella Rae Rustic Lace, a tweedy rustic looking heavy lace-weight in a blend of wool and raw silk.  (Bonus: it's certified organic.) It knits to lace or fingering weight gauge depending on your needle choice. It's perfect for pretty much everything from scarves to sweaters to mitts! This yarn is so new that Ravelry is featuring just a handful of new patterns designed in it. P.S. Rustic Lace is featured in this week's 12 Weeks of Christmas project too! --> Get Rustic Lace in our online shop.

The Mitten Tree

It's begun! Come see the mitten tree at the shop through November and pin a pair to the tree. If you buy Berroco Vintage or Galway Worsted in yellow or gold, then donate a skein's worth mittens, we'll give you a brand new skein for free! Mittens are donated to AIO Food Pantry for distribution through the holiday season. Thanks so much to Wanda for getting us started with a plethora of beautiful mittens donated throughout the year! --> Read about the mitten tree.
Knitting Nuances, A Knitting Blog

After you've learned the knitting basics, the rest is all about nuance. If you're at that stage, Knitting Nuances is one of the best blogs out there for learning knitting skills! I was reminded of it the other day when I came across this post about the hatch stitch edge, a seriously fantastic alternative to garter stitch for solving the perennial knitting problem – how to prevent your edges from rolling.

From the Blog: It Happened!

From the Vaults: Knitting and Felting Misadventures

The Baa-Ble Hat has been on my mind for nearly a year and a half now – ever since it was released for free as the official Shetland Wool Week pattern of 2015. It’s been on the collective mind of the knitting world too, and in my estimation has achieved the status of an all-time knitting favorite. What knitter could resist those darling little sheep dancing around her head? Oh my. Frankly, I can’t explain why I’ve waited so very long to dive in and knit one.

What does it mean to knit through the back loop? Well, ordinarily stitches are mounted on the needle with the right leg forward. If so, you twist a stitch by knitting through the back leg of the stitch, rather than the front. If your stitch is mounted with its right leg back, then you will twist the stitch by knitting through the front leg.
