The most fun you can have busting your stash!

  • A green sweater with multicolored bobbles.

Introducing the Bobble Buster sweater (in both kids and adult sizes), a top-down circular yoke, sprinkled with all-over bobbles. There’s no stranded colourwork or intarsia, and there are so many ways to have fun with this pattern. Use one colour for your bobbles – or an infinite variety. Use up your tiniest scraps, show off a treasured mini skein set, or best of all, get a curated dyed-to-order kit from dyer Annie Paaren, my collaborator and the inspiration for this design.

Join me for a cast-on party over on Instagram from January 1 to 7. I’d love to see your first few rounds and the yarns you’ve chosen. Tag your post with #bobblebuster and #castonparty so we can find each other. If you want to keep the community spirit going as you knit, join the Bobble Buster KAL, running from January 7 to February 28. I’ll be hosting this on Slack, a great place to share images and messages, but you will need an account and an invite. Prizes will include products from my shop, plus fun items from Bad Betty Knits, and pretty yarn! Winners will be drawn at random, from FOs (finished objects) and mostly FOs (slow knitters deserve prizes, too).

Even more cases for interchangeble needles & notions

  • A brown leather case filled with knitting notions.
  • Brown leather cases.

I’m excited to share two new cases and a bit of re-branding! The Knitter’s Book Case is now called The Original Case, and is joined by two new designs, The Flip Case and The Stretch Case. All three are exclusively offered in leather, with a wool felt lining in the Flip Case, and are now listed for preorder, closing November 9. (They’ll ship in early December to arrive in time for the holidays in the USA and Canada.)

The Flip Case stores up to eight needle tips, and has two pockets for cables. I love this design, because it really is so flexible. It can lay flat as an add-on inside your Original Case and transform into a convenient needle wallet by folding over. Thanks to a simple elastic closure, the fold line can move depending on the length of the needles you store in it.

The Stretch Case is inspired by classic pencil cases that strap around binders and notebooks. I started working on this when I was using my Original Case on road trips (sigh, remember those?) I really wanted access to my notions without having to open the whole case up – plus it allows you to store some bulkier items that don’t fit as well in the interior pocket of the Original.

The Original is offered in my usual Dark Brown and Deep Black, and a special edition Red. And just for this batch, I’m offering a custom embossed monogram in the centre front panel.

Good news for needle collectors

  • A gold zippered case with a magenta pocket.
  • A gray and black case holding metal knitting needle tips.

The Knitter’s Book Case has gotten an expansion pack!

Earlier this spring, I introduced the Knitter’s Book Case, designed to hold multiple sets of interchangeable needles and leave lots of room for extras. But what if slots for up to 24 needle tips just isn’t enough? Introducing the Knitter’s Brief Case. This versatile interchangeable needle case can work as a standalone or as an add-on for the larger Knitter’s Book Case. With two pockets for cables, a large zippered pouch for notions and slots for up to nine pairs of needle tips, the Brief Case expands the capacity of the Knitter’s Book Case by more than a third, and has two slots devoted to really big needles – up to 15 mm.

Even when completely full, the Brief Case folds easily inside a jammed Book Case, adding only about 1″ to the width.

The Brief Case is also ideal for putting together a project-specific toolkit. Working on a pattern that calls for two needle sizes, three cord lengths, snips, stitch holders and a darning needle? Move them from your larger case to the Brief Case for the duration of the project.

Just like the Book Case, the Brief Case is made from 100% wool felt and suede and is cut and assembled by hand in Montreal.

The Ultimate Interchangeable Needle Case

  • A pink and tan case holding knitting needles and a pair of scissors.
  • Navy blue and hot pink cases.

Introducing the Knitter’s Book Case, an interchangeable needle case that is designed for the knitter with a large collection of tools. With ample space for multiple needle sets and essential notions, you can store everything in one place. Unlike a needle roll, the Knitter’s Book Case stays flat and keeps its shape even when full. It’s about the size of an iPad or a notebook (hence the name) and fits easily into most bags and purses.

A few highlights:
Slots for up to 24 pairs of interchangeable needle tips
Maximum needle size 10mm, can store needle tip lengths from 3.75″ to 6″
Four pockets for cables – sort by length or by brand
Large zippered pocket for notions and add-ons like connectors and stoppers – will even fit crochet hooks and DPNs up to 8″ long
Magnetized area for stitch markers & darning needles – strong enough to keep even large items like scissors in place, even when you are on the go

The cases are handmade in small batches in Montreal from the finest materials. The exterior and lining are 100% wool felt, an ecological and sustainable fabric that meets OEKO-TEX standards for safety and the interior pockets are suede, ideal for keeping needles firmly in place – no more wandering needle tips!
