We set up a lot of needles this weekend! We have anodized Northern Light™ needles in all three lengths in Robins Egg Blue, Purple, and Silver! We have a new batch of Black Nickel! And, just for good measure, we have more Heavy Metal™ needles in stock!
We have a new US wood supplier! Woo hoo!
First color up - Silver Forest! And Tom has added US 10 and 10.5 to the sets! Lots of exclamation points!!!!
It's the end of a few hot and humid weeks in Vermont! To celebrate, we have Chestnut Darn Pretty™ needles! Sheep cases! Sheep pouches!
It's hot here. They say tomorrow is going to feel like 101 degrees! What's even hotter? Cinnamon Stripe Darn Pretty™ Needles and Pear cases!
Cinnamon Stripe is a color we made into double points when we first started making needles. I believe there was just one run of interchangeable needles made from this color, way back at the start of the interchangeable needles.
Well, Tom found a panel of Cinnamon Stripe. This is Dymondwood®, the original product from Rutland Plywood in Vermont. These are truly collectible needles! Tom has made 3.5, 4, and 5 inch sets. They are lace, but he has not tipped everything as of this writing, so if you want regular tips, let us know when you order.
Sets are at the continued discounted rate of $300 and include a Pear case, three cables, and four logo stops!
Once these are gone, they are gone for good!
We have new stops! The same wonderful people that have made our gauge are making stops! These fit our normal size cables for Northern Light™ and Darn Pretty™ needles. They are crafted from acrylic with a layered DC logo!
We also have a new batch of 4 inch black nickel Northern Light™ needles in, and Tom has carved a batch of beautiful Peacock™ crochet hooks too!
We're about to send out a new newsletter - read up on these and more! Happy 4th of July!
We have our very own needle gauge! Crafted for us in the US from clear acrylic, the gauge includes all our needle sizes, from the Heavy Metal™ sock sizes on up. And it includes US 6.5/4.25 mm!
These, new cases, and more are all listed on the site today! Happy (almost) Summer Solstice!
We have a new color in our Darn Pretty™ needles! Kaleidoscope - a mix of red, pink, yellow, blue, green, and charcoal! Presently we have them in 4 and 5 inch length sets. These are gorgeous!
Also, Heavy Metal™ needles have been restocked!
We have restocked 5 inch Black Nickel Northern Light™ needles! Our very best needles, these are solid aluminum needles, with a perfect point between lace and regular. Stitches just flow from these needles! You'll find them on our site on the Northern Light™ Black Nickel page.
Tom is feeling much better and is back at the wood shop working on a new color. Hopefully we will have that up this weekend/beginning of next week. And he is finishing up the expanded Spring Forest set for the Chester Andover Family Center raffle. Details on the raffle will be coming soon!
Lots of changes this week. Smaller set requirements, fewer places we can ship to, more lengths in Northern Light™ needles! All of it is in our newsletter.
Our newsletter this week features Darn Pretty™ needles in Sunrise Stripe and Rosewood Swirl. Amazing needles. Tom has worked for months to improve his methods. It has paid off in the finest work he has ever done. Really. The needles are amazing.
We are also featuring four women and their businesses that we would love for you to experience. Kim Kaslow of The Woolen Rabbit. Amy Ross Manko of The Ross Farm. Jill Duarte of HipStrings. Scarlet Tang of Huckleberry Knits.
