Firefly, Princess Bride and Llamicorns!? Oh MY!

That’s right we have all kinds of fun spewing all over the studio!
Join us Friday Feb 10th at 9am PST for a Brand New FireFly fabric that is sure to make you feel all “Shiny”! This is our limited, once monthly bag crack! No obligations, just pick the supplies you like most and then creepily stalk you mail-person. (It’s cool, they like it… I think.)

If Sci-Fi is not your thing- what about Fantasy!? There are a couple of our EXCLUSIVE Princess Bride Project bags still available! These will not last much longer.

And further down the Fantasy path we have the super special Rainbow Knitting Llamicorns. It’s just hard to frown when there are Llamicorns around! They won’t be in the shop long, so make sure you stop by and say “HI!” soon!

Boyfriend Bandana

This is the first in a series of bandanas designed for the boyfriend in your life that may be a reluctant wearer of traditional accessories.

There will be 4 basic designs, of which this is the first. Each of the designs will have two variations: the first (variation A) will feature the basics of the design, and the second (variation B) will feature the same design, in different colors, and have a pendant embellishment at the tip of the bottom point.

You may well find that the appeal extends far beyond the boyfriend, and you may end up knitting one for yourself – or even a girlfriend!

The amount of yarn needed for color C in either variation is small – around 50-75 yards/45-70 meters.

If you want to add the embellishment to variation B you’ll need a small pendant to attach to the bottom point during bind off. I chose a small gold-plated brass that’s a reproduction of preColombian jewelry I found on a recent visit to Bogota.

Pattern available in my Ravelry store.
Finished items hand knit by me available on Etsy.

Sock Fever!

I don’t know about you, but January has given me a serious case of sock fever! I have more or less cast all WIPs aside in favor of sock knitting, and I can’t seem to cast on enough! If you find yourself to be suffering from sock fever, then you’ll definitely want to check out the Traveler base. Like the Cedar Hill Farm Company website, Traveler has a new look that I know you’ll love! If you haven’t tried superwash British BFL for sock knitting, you have been missing out. This soft, hard-wearing fingering weight yarn is everything you want from a sock yarn with the added advantage of being available in a rainbow of tonal colorways.

And, ever new sock project deserves a new project bag, so also be sure to check out the seven new fabrics available for the double-grommet project bags, including some serious sheep love, yoga farm animals, a trendy floral, and butterflies! Whether you knit two-at-a-time or you have two different sock projects on the needles and want to keep them both close at hand, these 7″ x 9″ bags are perfect for taking your sock projects wherever you go.
