Featured Yarn & Pattern
K1C2's Cozette is a light silk-cotton-nylon Cozette has a very slight texture and a very soft feel (“feels like butter”)! It is a great weight for light knitted garments, and also for crochet.
The Flagship Shawl and the Lacy Owls Shawl were both designed for Cozette yarn! They're perfect for summer. We have lots of solids and hand-dyed colors. Both patterns are available at Yarnivore or on Ravelry ($5.50 - $6.25).
Helpful Hint of the Week
What's the deal with knitting needle points? Why does it matter if my needles are sharp or blunt?
Sharp needles are better at getting into tight spots, so they're great for situations where you're going to do a lot of decreases, like lace knitting (where it's not uncommon to see 3 or more stitches being knitted together. If you have trouble getting your needles INTO the stitches, try a sharper needle.
Blunt needles, on the other hand, are split-stitch preventers. They push the strands aside rather than poking into them. If you split stitches a lot or are working with a splitty yarn, try switching to a blunt needle!
