Knitting and Crochet Patterns-A-Day, every day, by top designers, throughout 2006!
New Needles
Luxurious hand-carved Surina Wood Knitting Needles are made from Surina wood obtained from plantations around Sundarban, India. The tree from which Surina wood is taken is locally known as "the elegant tree." These trees are tall and very straight. They have tiny branches, and they produce a wood which is hard yet light in weight and light pink in color. In Kolkata (Calcutta), India, highly trained artisans turn this elegant wood into exceptional knitting needles and crochet hooks, highlighting natural grain, hyper smoothness of the wood, and handmade perfect finish. The polish is produced without the use of any harmful chemical or agent. No other wood can provide with the look that Surina can. The needles are perfect in gauge and length. Like Surina Wood Crochet Hooks, they are incredibly beautiful.
Something Special -- The Ursula Baby Bag
What more elegant way to present your handmade baby gift, to a very special mother-to-be, than tucked inside an Ursula Baby Bag? The Ursula Baby Bag, like all the Offhand Bags, is at the height of luxury -- and perfectly practical. As baby grows, Ursula, with all its pockets, is a wonderful knitting bag! These gorgeous bags are brand new at Dream Weaver Yarns. To celebrate our newest Offhand design, now through November 30, 2005, we will include 2 skeins of Debbie Bliss Baby Cashmerino and an adorable baby pattern with each Ursula Baby Bag purchase.
