Cabin Fever

Elizabeth Zimmerman in Knitting Without Tears, on knitting...

"Its many tenets are enjoyment and satisfaction, accompanied by thrift, inventiveness, an appearance of industry, and, above all resourcefulness."
* * * * *
It's cold, it's snowy, and it's rainy! While we are waiting for the season to heat up, ward off cabin fever. Light the fire, fire up the stove, turn on your favorite movie, and create. It's our favorite season to craft! Cozy up with Big Stitch Knitting and Crochet, and craft for your home. Find a fashionable pattern that suits your style. Take a look at new designs by Vadis, Ysolda, Grace Akhrem, Marie Grace, Carol Bristol, Bekah Knits and Cocoknits.
Stitching Big

Big Stitch Knitting and Crochet allows you to create richly textured garments and home accessories in no time using multiple yarns held together or Super Bulky Yarn and BIG Needles and Hooks. Three pattern books devoted to Big Stitching provide inspirational ideas.

Bump is a new yarn created for knitting and crocheting rugs, cushions, blankets and wraps using Big Stitch Tools. This natural-fiber yarn has a wonderful feel. Each Bump yields a rug approximately 24" x 27".

Romantic Style from White Lies
Zelda, White Lies's newest design, is inspired by the fabulous 1940s. During WWII, the sweater girl was the woman of the day, and she was on every soldier's mind as he spent months away from home. A curvy gal like Zelda would surely remind him what he was fighting for. Romantic Zelda is knit circularly from the bottom up and is shaped with interior darts.
