Fall Knitting and Crocheting Time is Upon Us!
|What's happening at|
Check out some of the latest arrivals:
Inspired by traditional Scandinavian-style colorwork knitting, Festive Mistletoe Socks feature pretty colorwork details reminiscent of holly leaves, mistletoe, and snow. The colorwork is straightforward as it uses only two colors at a time with short floats, making this project accessible for beginners as well as more advanced knitters. Once the colorwork after the cuff is completed, the remainder of the sock is knit in stockinette stitch using the main color. Using three seasonal shades of The Fiber Company's soft Amble yarn, these socks will not only keep the toes cozy, but also bring the festive spirit to every stitch.
Quantities are limited so don't wait to get yours!
Creative Melange Garzato Aran Wonderball is indeed a wonder! This soft and fluffy yarn is a blend of wool and acrylic that can be machine washed (gentle cycle). There are 765 yards in each 200g ball.
I'm going to use it to make a vest, like this Erikka pullover vest, for a quick and cozy addition to my cold-weather wardrobe.
