June 2005

Hit the Beach
It's bikini season!  We wonder if our grandmothers would have imagined that we would be knitting and crocheting bikinis and cover-ups.  We are, and they are wonderful quick projects.  Berroco, Vogue, Knit.1 and Rowan offer hot styles to cool off in this summer.  They are fast to knit or crochet and only small quantities of yarn are required!

The images below link to the pattern book or magazine featuring each design.  Write to us at Info@DreamWeaverYarns.com for sizing, yarn, and yardage for any of the designs pictured.

Knit or crochet these cool cover-ups in Rowan's Linen Print or Cotton Braid or in Berroco Gem. These breathable yarns are available in beautiful rich hues.  The yarns are perfect for these great cover-ups, and for all of your summer projects.
More Little Summer Projects
Knit or crochet for Barbie! These adorable Barbie clothes are as clever as creative designer Nicky Epstein can make them, and that's pretty clever.  Each tiny design requires only a tiny investment of time and materials.  We doubt you'll find a smaller project to tote in your knitting bag!

From Vogue Knitting's great "On the Go" series we have Felting, Crochet Scarves and Crochet Basics.  All feature small, portable projects.  Crochet is currently the hottest trend in needle arts.  If you don't know how to crochet, Crochet Basics is a great way to learn this summer. 

Learning

Learn Tunisian Crochet with Easy Tunisian Crochet by Annie's Attic.  The kit includes Tunisian Cable Crochet Hooks in Sizes M, N and P and step-by-step instructions for three beautiful projects.  After you've learned, try your talented hands at these wonderful projects from Stitch Diva.

What's New

When you visit Dream Weaver Yarns, be sure to click on the arrow in the What's New box on our home page.  All of our new products are listed in the order they were added to the site, with the most recent at the top.  It's a great way to see "What's New" at Dream Weaver, and in knitting and crochet.

 

A recent addition:  The Art of Knitting and Crochet 2 DVD.  The second DVD in the Art of Knitting series contains a review of the basics of knitting, teaches intermediate knitting skills and crochet, and contains a sock workshop, a segment on felting, a Vogue Knitting fashion photo shoot, the Zen of Knitting, a segment on recycled silk yarns and specialty yarns, and knitting for charity.

Insider Info

Denise has asked retailers to sell their wonderful Denise Interchangeable Needle Sets at no less than retail.  (Retail is $47.95, and that is a phenomenal price for these complete needle sets!)  We must oblige, so as of June 15 we can no longer sell at our current discounted price.  Order your set today!

We are off to the National Needle Arts Association Trade Show this month to find you all the latest and greatest fall fashions and notions.  We'll tell you what's coming in our next issue.
