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!

Introducing StarKnits

  • A white bag with a blue and green leaf pattern.

I’m an indie bag maker recently from Wisconsin, formerly from Pennsylvania, and I make everything myself.

The project bags I make are to carry around your knitting, crochet and spinning. I have many shapes, including box bags, pyramids, wedges and backpacks. I make a few bags that snap to hang on spinning wheels or looms in order to hold fiber or tools.

All of the bags are designed by me. I search far and wide for fabric and even have some that I print specifically for my business alone. I always have a variety of prints, some of which don’t stay around long. The fabric baskets and rope bowls are excellent to sit beside your wheel or loom to hold fiber or weaving supplies. I also make stitch markers to hold your place in knitting or crochet. I make orifice hooks for your spinning wheel and crochet hooks with fun handles. The crochet hooks are one of a kind as I play with clay and bake them on the hook. I also just recently have started to blend some different wools together to make batts for sale.
I love doing special orders and I’ve worked with other indie dyers to do collaborations of bags and yarn kits. Please feel free to message me to see about your own collaboration or bag made specifically for you. I also have items that I don’t generally sell online, but if you’ve seen them at a show and you’d like them, message me!

StarKnits was scheduled to vend at Pittsburgh Creative Arts Festival in Pittsburgh, PA, March 20-22 and then at YarnCon in Chigago, IL, April 4-5. Both events were canceled due to COVID-19 and I applaud the organizers for being proactive about the health of our community. I’m using my time to take photos and do an update of epic proportions (at least for this one-woman business) starting on the 20th.

New at BeesyBee Fibers

  • Skeins of plum and orange variegated yarn

Hello there! It has been a while since I updated my shop with hand-dyed yarn. As you can imagine, I’m very excited about this update. Maybe because we are at the end of summer, and I felt the need of starting a new knitting project, but I didn’t want to start another Fall season without offering hand-dyed yarn in the shop.

What’s New at Fluffy U Fiber Farm

  • A collage of magenta yarn with various variegated skeins.

Summer is upon us and the lambing season is finally done. If you are looking for a lightweight yarn to knit with this summer, our hand-dyed wool, linen and silk blend is perfect. I just finished Wave by Kristen Finlay with our wool, linen and silk blend and it knit up beautifully.

We are participating in the Save Em to Save Em Campaign and we have raw Shetland and Leicester Longwool as well as Leicester Longwool yarn. We will have Shetland yarn for the fall festival season.

If you are in the Dover, Pennsylvania area, give us a call and stop by and see the farm, our baby lambs, all the sheep and the shop, located on the farm.
