Designer Spotlight: Striped Trap by Andra Asars

We lovingly refer to Andra Asars (our New England sales rep) as “the hurricane.” She talks a mile a minute, decides whether or not she likes a yarn in a single touch and knows our collections better than anyone. Read more

Designer Spotlight: Brassica Pullover by Elizabeth Smith

The third time was the charm for Elizabeth Smith’s latest design. She knew she had the right yarn, she just needed to make a few modifications. So she knit and frogged (and knit and frogged) and knit it again until she was completely satisfied. Elizabeth is a bit of a perfectionist and Berroco Ultra Alpaca didn’t disappoint! Read more

Designer Spotlight: Breakfast Waffles Socks by Rosencrantz Knits

Working as a school teacher in New Brunswick, Brittany (a.k.a. Rosencrantz Knits) has plenty of opportunity to show off her collection of colorful and “cableicious” handknits. In fact, her students have come to expect it! While many of Brittany’s designs are inspired by her love of literature, her latest came from a more practical place – specifically, recess duty, and her feet were freezing! Read more

Ashley’s Adventures in Knitting: Udina KAL

If you haven’t heard, our latest knit-along started this week featuring our new free pattern, Udina. This beautiful sweater – designed by the one and only Norah Gaughan – features an interesting new cable pattern that  requires two cable needles for one of the stitches. Luckily, it only sounds hard! Read more

Designer Spotlight: Mouette Mittens by Emily Ringelman

After a recent move from California to Delaware, Emily Ringelman realized that her supply of winter weather gear was severely lacking. (Can you say polar vortex?) So, as any knitter would do, Emily turned to her stash and picked out some Vintage DK to make a pair of “warm, non-itchy” mittens! Read more

Designer Spotlight: Poncho Zillah by Jessica Mounts

Jessica Mounts loves knitting for her nieces and nephews. In fact, her latest design was inspired by and named after her baby niece, Zillah! Read more
