Join our Stocking KAL for November!

  • Christmas greens border and the words Stocking Knit-a-Long

Want to get a head start on some holiday knitting? Us too! We are casting on for a holiday stocking Knit-a-Long on November 1st, and hope you’ll join us. There will be weekly prizes, encouragement, help if needed, and we’ll share our progress with each other. Plus, we’ll have a blast knitting a straightforward, two-color stocking in DK weight.

We’ll be using the Deck Your Halls pattern by Stacey Lewis (Aka The Knitting Tutor) and you can purchase Jilly & Kiddles kits which include the pattern. The designer will be knitting along with us as well, so there will be plenty of support if you need any. Don’t worry — you’ve got this!

The goal is to knit the stocking during the month of November, but you don’t have to finish by Nov. 30th to join in OR to win a prize. Just do what you can — we’re in this for fun! Kits are available in four different color options. Order yours today.

Warm the Line

A sewing machine illustration that reads #vote2020 and #warmtheline

This November, many of us are hoping for a record turnout at the voting polls. While many will vote by mail, I suspect there will still be those whose lives have been so upturned by this pandemic that they will be standing in long cold lines on November 3. The longest lines may be in those cold swing states where neighborhood polling places have been removed. We are crafters — knitters, crocheters, sewists — making items to send to voters who may be in need of warm accessories to make standing in line bearable. Please see project details on our Instagram account or the, #warmtheline hashtag.

Buy an item to commemorate the project with our hand-drawn logo by an emerging artist.

Fun and unique handmade resin stitch markers

  • Aqua and green flower stitch markers.

If you like fun and colourful stitch markers, these are for you! Each charm is made from a lightweight resin that doesn’t snag on your projects or weigh them down. The resin is hand mixed so each colour is unique and can be customized if you so wish! You can choose from lobster claw attachments or rings, and single markers or sets are both available.

There are even some Halloween colours left as well to make your project super spooky, so be sure to take a peek before they’re gone!

Reversible Trellis Cowl Knit Design

  • A hot pink cowl with a gray interior.

Reversible Trellis Cowl is a fun accessory that can be made in any two colorways. It’s reversible so you can wear it either way, inside or out. Try contrasting colors for exciting pops of color, or subtle colors for a quiet elegance. One side has a lacy slip stitch pattern so you can see a little bit of the other color through it; the other is a beautiful trellis pattern. Knit in a tube and seamed together at the end. It’s two in one! Knit in two skeins of fingering weight Chasing Rabbits Fiber Co yarn.
