Craftvent is Coming!

 
YARN   NEEDLES   KITS   PATTERNS   BOOKS   NOTIONS   NEW   SALE
 
 

Regular sale for the second annual Craftvent Calendar was supposed to begin November 1, but... we're opening it early (today) because we're too excited!

Calendars will be charged and shipped November 20.

Join us for our exclusive 24-day mystery knit-along as we count down to the holidays with our yarny advent calendar! The gorgeous crimson box comes stuffed with hand-dyed yarn from Madelinetosh, Anzula, Baah Yarn, and so much more. Rachel Roden of Unraveled Designs designed a stunning shawl and we cannot wait to cast on with everyone December 1! Limited quantities are available for each colorway so be sure to act fast and get your kit now!

 
 
 
 

To celebrate the premiere of Stranger Things on Netflix, we bring you "Weirder Stuffs," a custom-dyed Solemate color inspired by the show. Wondering what our knitted things might look like if we suddenly found ourselves lost in the dreaded "Upside-Down," we ventured into the depths of our Project Log and found the perfect shawl. The Walking Dead Shawl's dramatic shape and gaping holes provide a deconstructed look that would be right at home in the mystical other-world and, using 2 skeins of Solemate, is large enough to double as a much-needed security blanket!

And if the name didn't give it away, it also provides the perfect project for all of you TWD fans out there!

 
 

Monika's Dragonhide Shawl

Harry Potter anyone? Monika recently released a collection of patterns inspired by the books. The Knitted Wit Dragonhide Shawl features short-row wedges and spikes reminiscent of the dragons' wings from the Triwizard Tournament. And while the blue color scheme is certainly representative of the Swedish Short-Snout, we are reminded of another dragon that made an icy splash in another favorite show of ours...

 

Monika's Venemous
Tentacula Cowl

And for something truly creepy-crawly, the Venemous Tentacula Cowl's tentacles are meant to be a fun (and possibly poisonous!) color. Using one skein of Lorna's Laces Shepherd Worsted, the length of the tentacles will depend on which color you choose. Read all about the Venomous Tentacula plant in "One Thousand Magical Herbs and Fungi" by Phyllida Spore. They are actually quite affectionate plants - until they start strangling you!

Pack your bags, we're going to India! For Season Two of our Jimmy's Journey series, Laura a.k.a. "Jimmy" and three other Beans are traveling to India for a 10-day excursion. The long flight calls for a new knitting project, so we've created our Passport to India Kit so you can knit along with Jimmy and the gang. The kit includes a skein of Knit Collage Cast Away yarn, three free scarf patterns, several accessories hand-crafted from our partners in India, and a map of India so you can keep track of our whereabouts while we're abroad! We take off November 7, won't you join us?

 

... Jimmy here! Sorry to steal your thunder, Beans, but I'm just super bad at keeping secrets! I'm supposed to wait until we're in India to share some of the secret stuff we're creating, but when I got this photo from Knitter's Pride, I just HAD to share it!! These are our very own RAINBOW KNIT BLOCKERS (rainbow because of our logo - and all CAPS because I'm SO flipping excited!). We'll get to see them in person on our trip & will get our first batch at the end of November... That said, if you want to get in on the action, you can pre-order your set now & we'll ship them when they arrive (p.s. they'll be $27.50 once they get here, but they are priced at $25 until then.) - Jimmy
