Featured Yarn and Pattern
Ready for a glowing autumn? Us too! Luminosa from Cascade Yarns glows like candlelight. It's also as soft and cuddly as a kitten. It's a blend of viscose, baby alpaca, and merino wool. One of the most unique yarns we've ever seen!
If you make this lovely cowl/infinity scarf, it can keep you warm, too! The Centerpiece Cowl by Shannon Dunbabin is a FREE pattern that highlights the unique glow of the Luminosa yarn.

The Tip Jar

Here's another way to store your circular needles if you have some wall space: Put up hooks and hang the needles up by their cords. Over time, this will allow their cords to relax and stop curling, too! You can add more hooks as your collection grows.
