This Just In…

We have received an order of needles and notions so come in and get what you need. These also make great stocking stuffers.

We also have gotten some new patterns.

Bomber Jacket to Knit by Val Love

"This knit bomber jacket will bring out the explorer in knitters who love an exciting project," assures Love. "Knit in two identical, but separate and contrasting pieces, the lining fits neatly into the exterior piece, adding to its warmth and allowing contrast in the turnback collar and cuffs, reminiscent of its original sheepskin counterpart. The jacket is fitted slightly and its 5-button closure and I-cord belt keep it close on those days when you are flying into the wind."

Bomber Jacket would knit up nicely in Silky Flammé, Ecological Wool, Deluxe Worsted Tweed, Poems, and Classic Shades.

St. Kilda by Kim Dolce

St. Kilda is my answer to surviving a lowered thermostat. My intention in designing this sweater was just that, to create the perfect sweater to keep me warm at home this winter.

St. Kilda would knit up nicely in Deluxe Worsted Tweed, Casablanca, Poems, Cascade 220, Classic Shades, Pacific, Api, and Cherub Aran.

Portsmouth by Kim Dolce

A splendid turtleneck design in a deeply involving yarn. It's rewarding to make, flattering to wear, and highlights every feminine gene you've got. Form-conscious Dolce has you make the body in the round, then split for front and back. Armholes are deeply indented once, then slightly curved; sleeve caps are proud and high. Shoulders are slightly sloped. It's a gem of a piece, reasonably quick to make in an Aran weight, and with a generous deep spiral rib border at all edges-- gracious and easy, only four rounds or rows high.

Portsmouth would knit up nicely in Deluxe Worsted Tweed, Casablanca, Poems, Classic Shades, Api, and Cherub Aran.

Point Reyes by Kim Dolce

Point Reyes should knit up nicely in Ushya and Classic Shades Big Time.

Children’s Mukluk Slippers by Diane Soucy

"Snuggly slippers for kids, fast to knit and long wearing in bulky yarn. The tops can be made longer or shorter as you want. Sizes toddler 7 to big kid size 5," says Soucy. (This last translates to a foot length of about 6" to 8".) What is it about her that comes up with such good-looking, kid-friendly, practical pieces? This is going to be one of those things you could make hundreds of, if you were willing-- demand would be that high, and the pattern's that simple. Gauge given over garter stitch. Note that chunky yarn is knitted on smaller needles than usual for extra durability. An adult version is available.

Mukluk Slippers should knit up nicely in Ecological Wool, Deluxe Worsted Tweed, Poems, and Classic Shades.

Children's Bulky Top down Pullover by Diane Soucy

"A snuggly raglan pullover with rolled edges for children sizes 2 through 14," says Soucy. "Fast to knit at a gauge of 12 sts to 4 inches. Edges can be made with ribbing instead of the roll, with no change in stitch counts." Spectacularly easy, gratifying to make, utterly timeless, and looks great on boys or girls-- this is a pattern with universal appeal. Soucy is careful to obviate any possible pitfalls at the outset (because the back neck is worked back-and-forth for a bit so as to lower the front neck), but afterwards all is circular and seam-free bliss.

This sweater would knit up nicely in Country Tweed, Deluxe Chunky, and Pacific Chunky.

Bulky Hooded Vest for Women by Diane Soucy

A nice fast to knit zippered vest written for bulky weight yarn at a gauge of 3 1/2 to the inch. It is slightly fitted. Has directions for a collared version also.

This vest would knit up nicely in Deluxe Chunky, Baby Alpaca Chunky, Ecological Wool, and Pacific Chunky.

Weekend Pullover by Diane Soucy

Soucy: "A super fast sweater to knit, this one makes a perfect first neckdown pullover because all of the loose collar sts are cast on at the beginning. Written for super bulky yarn at 2 stitches to the inch on size 17 needles, you really can finish it in a weekend! No sewing means no bulky seams in this thick yarn. Women's sizes small to x-large. Yarn shown is Burly Spun by Brown Sheep Company. Brittany makes the size 17 needles needed for the sleeves." A traditional winter classic that will never stale.

This sweater would knit up nicely in Ushya, and Classic Shades Big Time.
