Jimmy Beans Wool Jimmy's SmartStix Holiday Interchangeables
 

You spoke and we heard! When SmartStix were first released over the summer, we had an overwhelming number of requests for... INTERCHANGEABLES! Well, your wish is our command - we are happy to welcome Jimmy's SmartStix Holiday Interchangeable Needle Sets to the SmartStix family! Just in time for the holidays, this set is perfect as a gift for a loved one OR as a gift for yourself. Each set includes 9 pairs of interchangeable tips and 5 cords, along with endstoppers and cord keys.

We haven't even told you the best part yet... order your set before the end of October, and you'll save 10%! Happy Holidays, indeed!

 

Looking for an interchangeable set that's a little more... wooden? Not to worry! The Knitter's Pride Ginger Interchangeable Deluxe Needle Set and the Knit & Purr Interchangeable Needle Set have arrived! These two sets are absolutely gorgeous alternatives to our SmartStix set, if you'd prefer something a little more tactile.

Drums of Autumn MKAL

We might not be able to travel back in time, like Claire, but we can plan for the future! The Drums of Autumn MKAL begins on November 4th, so there's still time to order your kit before the show's premiere! Inspired by the Carolinas, each kit includes 3 skeins of Mrs. Crosby Satchel, in exclusive colors Carolina Sky and Dogwood. You'll also receive the download code for Rachel's pattern, Drums of Autumn, which can be downloaded from Unraveled Designs' Ravelry Store!

 

This MKAL is a bit different than ones we have hosted in the past. That's because, this time, we're showing you SPOILERS! If you want to see the project before you commit, check out these gorgeous photos of Rachel wearing her shawl! Proceed with caution (Or, knit dangerously, and throw caution to the wind!)... you'll be hooked!

 
 

New Sugar Bush Yarn!

We recently started carrying our first line of Sugar Bush Yarns, Rapture, and we were so enamored (We're not exaggerating, we even used it as the yarn in our 4th quarter Crochet Project Club, featuring designer Michael Sellick!), that we were happy to welcome two more lines into our 'stash'! Bold is a worsted weight, 100% merino wool yarn that features the perfect twist and wonderful stitch definition! If chunky knits are more your cup of tea, grab a ball of Canoe! This wool and alpaca blend will add just the right amount of tweed to your fall projects!
