Coastal Knits

Coastal Knits

We are now carrying Coastal Knits. It’s full of lovely patterns by knitwear designers Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig. “They have come together to produce a compilation of ten fresh designs inspired by Alana’s California and Hannah’s Maine coastlines. Each design captures the essence of their favorite local destinations, and is accompanied by photographs and essays on the location’s special meaning to the designer. It is a personal, inspiration-based collection of sweaters and accessories that knitters of all levels will appreciate.” – Coastal Knits

Japanese Knitting Know How

New Japanese Pattern Magazines

We have many Japanese knitting magazines to thumb through for knitting inspiration! Also on offer are three Chart Symbols Discs made from recycled CDs by our very own Judy Sakaguchi. These discs are a handy tool for deciphering the symbols in the pattern charts. They’ve flown off the shelves, but you can always call to order if you’re interested in owning one. However, if you want the discs and the wealth of knowledge that Judy brings, then you should definitely sign up for her Japanese Knitting Pattern Basics class. The next session is on Sunday, May 31st from 4:00-6:00 pm. Check out the class schedule for more details.

You are now no longer limited to dog sweaters. The new book, Pet Projects expands the selection of knitting for your four-legged friends. From an adorable hamster home to the mouse shaped cat rug, the options are truly delightful. Of course George also approves of the Whippet models used throughout!
