Great New Magazines!

Is there a Harry Potter or Downton Abbey fan on your gift list this year? What more unique gift could there be than a knitted item inspired by their favorite movie or television show? These magazines are full of beautiful patterns that any fan (or even those who are not fans) would love!

These are a Few of our Favorite Things

The sheep rug ~ well what can we say ~ it is adorable!

Highlighter tape is a must have for every knitter and crocheter. It makes keeping track of your rows so much easier and works great with charts, too!

A row counter that you can wear as a ring? It is always right where you need it and easy to read and to advance without putting your project down to do so!

This conductive thread is amazing ~ you can use your touch-screen device with your gloves on! With cold weather on its way, this thread can give your knitted items an added WOW factor. Just use it as a carry along thread when knitting the fingertips of your gloves, or using a sewing needle, weave it into your favorite pair of store bought or hand-knit gloves!
