New this month in the HandmaineKnits Etsy shop

  • A white mug that reads, I turn coffee into sweaters with a teal sweater and cup of coffee pictured

I have just added beautiful yarn and knitting-inspired mugs in three exclusive designs with original artwork to my Etsy shop!

The orignal “Sweater Knitter’s Crest” – Whether it symbolizes your heritage, achievements, or aspirations, everyone should know you are a Sweater Knitter.

“I Turn Coffee into Sweaters” – Let your friends and family know you’re going to need that second cup, you have a sweater to finish!

Perhaps you are a bit of a “Yarn Snob”? It is okay to admit, we know you’re not judgmental, you just like what you like (we do too). This mug would also make a great gift for your knitting bestie.

These ceramic mugs are dishwasher and microwave safe, and are made to order right here in the U.S., typically shipping within 3-5 days.

Fresh Batiks & a Side of Snark

  • Bags in a red batik print

What is a batik you may ask…

Batik is a “resist” process for making designs on fabric. The artist uses wax to prevent dye from penetrating the cloth, leaving “blank” areas in the dyed fabric. The process, wax resist then dye, can be repeated over and over to create complex multicolored designs.

These are gorgeous and unique and I hand picked each one for its special charm. Also… I made a thing. I just enjoy some snark with my beauty sometimes and this bright turquoise meme-made fabric hit the spot!

All these items are limited and ready to ship, so shop early!

Listings go live Friday at 9 a.m. PDT!

Introducing a new product line to the shop!

  • A project bag slung over a knitter's arm

Japanese Knot Bags are the perfect bag to carry your current project in! They also make great gifts for teachers, colleagues, kids, and your knitting or crochet friends. We just stocked two new whimsical, fun designs that will bring a smile to your face every time you reach for your current project.

It will hold 1-2 balls of yarn or a small wallet, keys, mobile phone, and more! This reversible knot bag with a round base is perfect for daily errands.

For a change of pace, turn it inside out for a completely different look. It has no zippers or buttons to catch on the yarn — just slip the long handle through the short handle to close the bag and go! This little bag makes it easy to knit while on go.

Bag measures approximately 9″ W x 12.5″ L including the handles.

We’ve also added some lavender sachets — perfect to keep bugs away from your stash or freshening up your sock drawer. You could also tuck one in with your precious finished objects in storage, ensuring that they’re fresh and bug free when the weather turns chilly!

And finally, our newest colorway: “Man Flu” (noun) — an illness that causes the male to be helpless and sicker than any other family member. In females: a cold. Couldn’t have said it better myself. We’ve all experienced man flu. It’s a debilitating illness that has no cure and makes loved ones wonder why they married the afflicted. This colorway is a nod to all of us who have conquered Man Flu and lived to tell about it.

It has turquoise, reds, and purples surrounded by grays. We’ve only got a few skeins left!

So many indie dyers. One email.
