Looking for gift ideas for stitching friends (or yourself)? We have more than just the handy Baggu tote bags in stock right now. Check out Baggu’s nifty zippered pouches and dopp kits. They all make great project bags.
And Chiao Goo’s Yarn Butler should be on every yarn lover’s wish list. It puts an end to yarn balls bouncing across the floor forever!
Wondering what’s been on some folks’ needles recently? I have finished projects to share! Jill finished her Drift* from Tin Can Knits in Malabrigo Rios, the Frank Ochre colorway.
She immediately cast on for Laura Aylor’s Bittersweet* in our spanking new Cascade 128 Superwash chunky weight, and, quick as a wink, she was done.
We have 20 colors in stock. With 2 weeks until the holidays, easy-care 128 Superwash and our other “wool-endowed” bulky yarns (Lyonel, Coco, Topas) are ready to help you finish up the last of your gift stitching.
One more finished project from Jill: she used Urth Uneek Worsted for this cute Puddleduck* by Melissa Schaschwary.
More cute? Coming up! Bonnie chose Malabrigo Rios for this Winter Sunset* from Gabrielle Danskknit for her granddaughter. Those buttons are a great finishing touch.
Below, Bonnie’s moppet models her Bitty Birchbark*, designed by Alicia Plummer, in Kelbourne Woolens Scout.
A few views of Bitty Birchbark‘s sweet details…
Rebecca’s crocheted mushroom wreath is spectacular! It was inspired by Kate Eastwood’s free pattern Autumn Wreath, but she created many of the highly detailed fungi all on her own.
Joanne’s go-to patterns for both her toe-up and top-down socks come from the always-reliable Churchmouse Yarns & Teas. Here is her Simple Toe-up Sock* in some Done Roving Frolicking Feet and Cascade Heritage and her Basic Sock* (top-down) in Austermann Step 6 and Frog Tree Pediboo. Way to rock the sock stash, Joanne!
Joanne has this stunning Derecho* from designer Alison Green ready and waiting for spring. Her yarn is Berroco Remix Light.
Until the warmer weather arrives, perhaps Gina could loan her the Winter Concept Shawl she made from designer Elizabeth Finn? Joanne’s sweater and this shawl would be beautiful together. Gina’s yarn is a mix of stashed alpaca yarn and Fibre Company Luma.
