Best picks

I realized we hadn't posted a BEST PICKS in a while, so here it is!

Best Pick Kits:
-Judy's Colors Christmas Stocking Kits
Another great way to prepare for the holidays these kits are colorful and include all the yarn you need to create a great family keepsake for the holiday season! These have been very popular, but we will not be reordering them, so get them while they're available.

-The Jade Sapphire Cashmere Scarf Kits for Her continue to be big sellers. We sell out of these weekly but keep getting more in stock.

Best Pick Patterns:
-Chic Knits patterns are relatively new in the shop and they have been really popular with our customers. These patterns feature a variety of knitter friendly designs that flatter the figure and present an interesting array of different techniques to keep your project interesting. Great fashion and function projects that you'll love. (We've reordered several times, so reserve yours now!)

-Crafty Hedgehog patterns are also taking off here in the shop. The Happy Frog and the Frog Prince are the best sellers by far, but we keep reordering all of them from Emily, our very own Crafty Hedgehog!

-Rowan's Lima Collection has great designs in it this fall and the yarn is simply gorgeous. It is hard not to fondle it everytime you walk through the worsted room. The sample sweater we have in the shop is just to die for and is the most gorgeous pine green color - it's my favorite and if you've been in on a cold day, you've probably seen me wearing it! Again, we're having trouble keeping this pattern booklet in stock so order it now to reserve your copy from our next shipment.

Best Pick Accessories, Notions, & Needles:
-Lantern Moon Fan Needlecases are the newest double pointed needle storage and they are ingenious! I simply cannot wait for us to get a couple more of these in stock so I can take one home. The cases open into a large circle where you will find the pockets to store your needles and then they fold up like a gorgeous silk fan to keep everything in place. Orange and silver silk pretties...

-Hiya Hiya 9" Circular Sock Needle Kits. Sock knitters take note - these come in both steel and bamboo points, and there are 3 sizes in each one - a very good deal.

-Fiberspheres... these are just really cool, and if you don't have one yet, you're missing out on the fun!

Best Pick Yarn(s):
-Fall Rowan yarns are a hit this month. Lima is an amazingly soft blend of baby alpaca, merino and just a touch or nylon blended together in a knitted chain construction that holds an amazing amount of loft. Cocoon is a bulky weight in a merino wool and mohair blend that is perfect for hats and mittens. As always Rowan has lovely colors available in both of these yarns and we are working to find as many patterns as we can to show them off! Try the Quincy hat or mittens knit flat (from our upcoming class). The new colors of Rowan Colourscape are also amazing! Check them out!
