Knitter’s Handy Book of Patterns

My favorite book is Ann Budd’s Handy Book of Patterns. This is not a new book, but one I keep going back to. Ann has a new pattern guide, made to be used with this book. Buy the book, buy the pattern guide, both are great.

Sock Rockets

My favorite thing now are the sock rockets. I love them. I am using them for socks and also for sleeves for a sweater. I think they are so much more fun than double point needles. Love the magic loop.

Carta Scissors

Right now my favorite thing we have in the shop is Carta Studio Scissors. They come in a great variety of sizes from tiny travel to larger heavy duty. I always have a pair of the small size with a red grip in my notions bag.

Beetle Kill yarn bowls

Many of Colorado’s pine trees have been killed by the pine beetle and it’s been devastating to see the damage. The silver lining created by this cloud is the beatiful blue-tinged wood created by the pine beetle. We are unbelieveably fortunate to have a skilled artisan, Jerry Ertle, in our midst who creates beautiful, rare, one-of-a-kind yarn bowls using this wood. My beetle kill yarn bowl is one of my most prized possessions!

Hedgehog fibers

My absolute favorite right now is Hedgehog Fibers. They make really amazing yarns in fantastic colorways. I recently worked on a shawl using their Skinny Singles, and I am hooked! I am looking forward to knitting with all of their yarns for my upcoming projects.
