A Short Update For You

Hi Everyone,

Welcome to the October 10, 2013 edition of News From The Knot.  Today you will see a few new Halloween canvases, a knit sample of the new yarn I showed you last week, a few reminders of things you may have forgotten (or maybe you never knew), and of course finished objects.  So let’s get started, shall we.


First up… new stuff.



Which reminds me…


How cute would a Halloween tree decorated with candy corn ornaments be?  These are small.  You could finish these really fast.

That’s not the only new stuff to show you…

We have a lot of needle and scissor bling.  The needle bling is a super strong magnet that you can attach to your canvas.  Your needle rests there when you are not using it, so you won’t lose it.  The scissor bling attaches to your scissors, making them easy to find.   There is something for everyone.  We have alligators, ladybugs, crowns, bees, snails, flowers, bunnies, Hello Kitty, fish, frogs, roosters, pigs, dogs, pineapples, elephants, flamingos, teapots, turtles, owls, pumpkins, stars, polar bears, a mouse and a martini glass.  Some people have been known to wear the needle bling as jewelry.  And others have used the scissor bling as a key ring.


A sample…



Which reminds me… remember this new yarn from last week?


It’s called Funky Felts and is 100% polyester.  That means it will be a breeze to care for.  The gauge for this yarn is 11 stitches and 13 rows for four inches on US17 needles.  That means it knits up really fast.  It is incredibly soft and we also have some patterns designed specifically for it.  That hat knit up in a few hours and is super squishy soft.


Sock Class
