I don’t normally post this sort of thing, but the Knitting Lounge at Fashion Week is the sort of project that can benefit all indy handknit designers in the long run. (It could also create a lot more competition, but that’s fine by me.) I donated what I could (it wasn’t much, but every penny helps) and I’m encouraging everyone to donate what they canRead More

If you have, let me say welcome to the world of the online LYS. If you haven’t, either you don’t order online or you are incredibly lucky.
Let’s go ahead and establish that I am not a lucky knitter.

Yes, I have ordered what I thought was a lovely pale pink yarn only to discover that the delicate pink was best described as pepto-bismolRead More
