Luxe Foun­da­tion

Whether wrapped around a fa­vorite mug, smooth nee­dles or a skin­soft­en­ing balm, these prod­ucts are ev­ery­thing a knit­ter’s hands need.

Gor­geous Stor­age

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.

Tan­gle-Free Porta­bil­ity

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.

Di­men­sional Beauty

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.
