Tom has made a batch of interchangeable crochet hooks. These are straight shafts - they perform beautifully for bullion stitches, Tunisian work, or just picking up the stitches of a collar band!
And we have a batch of Northern Light™ needles that are seconds. A wee bit of spotting, a shade difference in the violet - Tom says to offer them as Seconds! Violet and Gold, both lengths!
This is what happens when Tom gets snowed in at home and can't get to the wood shop! Hummingbird™ and Peacock™ hooks appear! Listed on our Crochet and Turnings pages. Hurry - there aren't many!
We have a fresh batch of Northern Light™ needles and due to some spotting on some of the needles, we are calling the whole run Seconds. Gorgeous Colors!!!
We have two new colors in our Darn Pretty™ interchangeable needles - Winterberry and Spring Forest. Winterberry is a rich red paired with charcoal, while Spring Forest is an intense green and charcoal combination. Gorgeous needles! We have them in sets in the 3.5, 4, and 5 inch lengths!
We have also restocked our amazing Black Nickel needles, both 3.5 and 5 inch lengths. We have added US 6.5/4.25 mm in the 3.5 inch length, and the 5 inch tips come in US 10.5/6.50 mm and US 11/8.00 mm now too!
The cleaning of the shop resulted in a huge stash of Black Nickel needles being unearthed! These are seconds - some are lighter in shade, some may have a silver area, and some are perfect, but are the leftovers of various runs. Whatever they case, they are incredible knitting needles at an incredible price of $25 a pair (cables are not included.)
3.5 and 5 inch, seconds and firsts at a huge discount!
There are so many colors that are available in just one size, or just one pair even, and it is such a mix, that we are listing them as size and length only. Colors will be whatever we have. Some are seconds, with white areas near the screw end, many are firsts. They are the remnants of previous offerings, they are great needles, and they need homes too! We are offering these at $15 a pair - a 60% savings!
We have just received a new batch of Black Nickel Northern Light™ needles! We have 3.5 inch tips in US 3/3.25 mm to US 6/4.00 mm, and 5 inch tips in US 3/3.25 mm to US 6.5/4.25 mm.
Just in time for the holidays! Heavy Metal™ needles are back in stock in all three lengths! These superb needles are crafted from solid stainless steel and feature our trademark seamless taper with the convex curve!
It's Giving Tuesday, and we have listed some beautiful sets - solids and mixes - in all three lengths. With each set purchased, we will donate $35 to the Chester-Andover Family Center. This all volunteer organization works year round to provide food, clothing, and monies for heat and rent to families in need in our community. Treat yourself or someone you love to a gorgeous set of needles and help a family in the process!
We are home from the Indie Knit and Spin show in Pittsburgh, PA. It was a wonderful trip, and an excellent opportunity to meet our customers, old and new. The highlight, however, was when Emily of Bricolage Studios stopped by to show Tom her tattoo of her Swan™ spindle. How cool is that?
We spent the day today unpacking and listing all manner of new items - from spindles to Darn Pretty™ pairs and sets, to double points. That's right - double points!
Thank you to Jill and Nic of HipStrings for putting on a wonderful event!
