Knitting for Kids - Wearable (and washable) Knits from Sassy Skein

Sassy Skein Fairy Princess Sweater
Just right for kids knitting!  Sassy Skein is a collection of fun to knit pullovers, cardigans, dresses, and hats for kids is now available at NobleKnits

A little bit about the company...Sassy Skein's well known designers, Mary Bonnette and Jo Lynne Murchland, have published several books featuring all things knitting related for kids.  Experts in the "knitting for kids" arena even led them to designing their own yarn line, Sassy Skein Karibbean Kotton Collection.  These yarns are available in DK and Worsted weights.  We love them because they are soft, easy to knit (they don't split), come in rich colorfast shades, and are machine washable - ideal for kids knits!

Now, their collection of whimsical knitting patterns brings Sassy Skein full circle.  Adorable projects that feature their easy care yarn - you'll love to make them and your kids will actually love to wear them!

Go West! New Westknits Patterns for seriously good knitting.

Nancy and Westknits designer, Stephen West
Meet designer, Stephen West!

We got to meet up with Westknits designer, Stephen West, at the TNNA show earlier this season.  This fresh faced young designer, who recently relocated to Amsterdam, is whipping up some fabulous new creations for those who love to knit. 

His specialty is shawls.  These shawls aren't your typical cast on 30 stitch and grab your big needles, either.  They are a work of art. Like break-out-your-best-Koigu type knitting.  His focus is on creating interesting shapes by using texture, shaping, and lots of mitering.  The patterns really seem to have their own rhythm.  Designs that are simple enough to enjoy, but challenging enough to keep you thinking.  I enjoy stopping along the way and taking a look at the work in progress, seeing the design come to life before my eyes.  Enjoy!

Fall in Love with Tresuir's New Sock Yarn: Infatuation!

Treisur Infatuation

Infatuation for sock lovers from Treisur's new yarn collection
We love the combination of fibers used to create this toe-warming yarn; bamboo, wool and nylon. Those fibers provide you with a soft, bouncy, easy care yarn that feels great on your feet.  Since there are 273 yards on a ball, 2 balls are all you need to whip up a pair.  The color palette of Infatuation is fabu as well..there's a color for everyone..a few brights, some soft tones, and even a few shades to knit socks for your fella.

Hmm..what to knit with Infatuation?  Here are a few project ideas!

New! Morning Glory Flower of the Month Yarns

Gorgeous yarns and kniting patterns!
I adore Fiesta Yarn's September Flower of the Month Collection. This month's flower is Morning Glory and it does not disappoint! Three pretty yarns have been lovingly hand dyed in shades of purple, lilac, and leaf green. The yarns are so soft, too! Fiesta's Ballet, Ballerina, and Gracie's Lace DK are comprised of fibers we love such as alpaca, cashmere, merino wool, and silk.

During this busy time of year I'm greatful for somewhat simple, 1 ball knitting projects - and this assortment has two of them. Knit a one-ball September Shawl or a one-ball Swirl Scarf. For those looking to knit up an interesting garment, try the Morning Glory Pullover with button detail and 3/4 length sleeves.
