It's COLD! Winter is here (for a few days at least) and we want to be COZY! This crocheted shawl is super cozy and should work up quickly enough that you can be cuddled into it by Thanksgiving: You'll love the Perfect-Pockets Shawl by Sonja Hood. Work it in Aran weight yarn, like Plymouth Encore for light warmth, or go for Cascade Eco Alpaca for super cuddly luxury.

The Tip Jar

The easy way to thread thick yarns into the smallish eye of your darning needle: Fold the yarn around the shaft of the darning needle and pinch it tightly under the needle; pull the needle out; flatten the fold of yarn; wiggle the fold of yarn through the eye of your darning needle. It works really well!

Can't visualize it? Stop by and we'll show ya!
