Whether wrapped around a favorite mug, smooth needles or a skinsoftening balm, these products are everything a knitter’s hands need.
Crafted from 100% New Zealand wool in alluring shades, these woven baskets from Aalta Yarn are the perfect container to store your favorite yarn or project (or household items). Featuring strong leather handles, solid brass hardware, and a mind-boggling thickness that demonstrates its quality, these various-size baskets are unbelievably sturdy while also looking amazing in any room of the house.
A Gauge for Innovation
Measuring gauge is to knitting as oven temp is to cake baking. And with Akerworks’ clever new Swatch Gauge tool, gauge looks as good as it gives. Translucent plastic, with narrow slits that are exactly 4 inches up and down, make it super easy to count stitches. The most notable aspect, though, is the “teeth” on the edges that hold your swatch in place so that you can’t sneak a stretch while measuring. This is truly an innovative must-have tool.
We might have just found the perfect knitting bag that blends seamlessly into daily life. The Duo from Laurie Laine has too many amazing features to list, such as luxe fabric, unique yarn sling pockets to prevent tangling, loops to keep needles and yarn in place, and a hinged spring frame that allows it to stay open or shut without snagging your yarn. Even adding in your keys and wallet still leaves room for a scarf-size project without a single tangle. Add in the perfect length straps that enable knitting-while-wearing and it’s a bag that will make everyone in your knitting group jealous.
An iridescent clay button adorns a delicate gold spiral for a shawl pin that is far above the ordinary. The flames that “lick” across the pieces throughout the kiln and firing process are the hallmark effect of these unique pins from LickinFlames, resulting in hues and blends that captivate. The reversibility and versatility of the shawl spiral is a fabulous bonus to an already luxe accessory.
