Just in!  Weardowney Knitting Kits
Fresh from London, Weardowney brings us glamorous, high-fashion knitting kits. The kits include the finest merino wool (wound into balls), needles and everything else you need to complete your handmade piece, all presented in a beautiful, vintage inspired half hat box. The kits are available in four skill levels, Beginner, Facile, Fiddly and Fiendish. Choose Beginner or Facile if you can cast on and off and knit and purl, Fiddly if you are ready to add a bit of shaping and texture to your knitting, and Fiendish to test the expert in you. Weardowney Kits are a wonderful gift! Order today to ensure delivery in time for holiday gift giving.

One Spectacular Sweater

Present a special knitter with a kit to create one spectacular sweater.  Dream Weaver Yarns offers kits, including yarn and pattern, to create the most elegant designs with the most luxurious silks and wools.  (Queen Anne's Lace by Phoenix Bess, once available only in Natural, is now available in colors!)

One Special Hat . . . One Special Scarf
Available as kits, these designs are easy to give and easy to create.

A Very Special Bag 

Kyann's Midnight Cherry Blossom Rucksack is designed by Phoenix Bess for Tilli Tomas and is available exclusively at Dream Weaver Yarns. 100% of your purchase price will go towards a new wheelchair for a special little girl.  The kit includes everything you need to create this brightly bobbled bag -- a pink Tilli Tomas Rucksack Form, 2 skeins of Tilli Tomas Silk 'n Shimmer (100% Silk), 1 each of Black and Hibiscus, and the pattern.  At $40 this kit is an incredible value (the kit items sold separately would cost $100). In this season of giving, knit this beautiful bag (or give the kit as a gift!), and support this worthy cause.

New from Phoenix Bess

14-year-old Phoenix Bess offers us an incredible collection of new patterns this season.  In addition to Queen Anne's Lace and Drama Queen, find patterns for accessories, skirts and pants.  The pieces in her fashion-forward collection are all easy to create thanks to her careful attention to impressive design detail and precise pattern writing.

New from Kristin 

Kristin offers elegant designs featuring Tilli Tomas yarns. The Flower Top is featured in Pure & Simple and Rock Star (luxury silks); the Swag Sweater in Aspen and Mogul (luxury wools).

More New Patterns

Debbie Bliss's new Out of Town pattern collection includes snuggle-into sweaters, long-line tunics and jackets, and enveloping coats, created in her softest Cashmerino and Alpaca Silk yarns.

Say "I'm thinking of you" with a hand knit scarf of lace hearts from Heart Strings. Simple and quick to knit, the scarf begins with a wavy eyelet rib stitch symbolizing the twists and turns of life and ends with a band of interlocking hearts to express the bonds of friendship. Knit this beautiful scarf with 1 skein of Tilli Tomas Pure & Simple (pictured in Ruby Wine) or any DK or light worsted weight yarn. Pair it with Heart Strings' Easy Elegance Ensemble.

Holiday Needle Felting Kits from Decadent Fibers 

Tilli Tomas Grommet Forms and Patterns 

Made of pure silk, Tilli Tomas's grommet forms allow you to knit a gorgeous body to your tote, rucksack, trinket bag or eyeglass case, in your favorite yarn, attached via the grommets. Your piece will be fully lined in silk. The forms (pattern included) are a wonderful way to use your stash.  Knit with exquisite Tilli Tomas Bejeweled or Silk Yarn and create something truly magnificent!
