April Featured Finds Round Up

For the last few years we've been sending out a weekly newsletter, Featured Finds, where we share little tidbits from around the world that we find interesting. The topics range far and wide, and are guaranteed to be interesting, educational, or thought provoking. Once a month, we'll be sharing the top ten highlights (on no particular order) from the weeks prior. March highlights are below. Enjoy!


1 / Can one ever have too many enamel pins? We think not. So here's some more!

2 / If you're not following @TheMERL you're not truly living. Check out all their thicc bois on Twitter.

3 / Download our free pattern in BC Garn's Tussah Tweed from Knit Simple Magazine!

4 / One of our favorite companies, Brown Sheep, posted a great list of the top ten reasons to support small businesses and natural fibers.

5 / Many yarn shops published some really great patterns for LYS day. Check out this lovely shawl from Manos / Fairmount Fibers here!

6 / Designer Casapinka created this lovely shawl for LYS day as well. 

7 / I'm not sure Daniel Day-Lewis knew what he was getting into when he posed on the cover of W in a traditional gansey.

8 / But, hey, it meant we provided a free download code for Seascale...and y'all really jumped on the offer!

9 / Threading a needle? You're doing it wrong. One twitter user sums it up best: "What kind of sorcery is this?"

10 / Anzula was in on the LYS Day fun as well - they had three absolutely lovely patterns on offer.

6 / Artist Ashley V. Blalock makes amazing crocheted installations. And she isn't stopping any time soon.

February Featured Finds Round Up

For almost two years, we've been sending out a weekly newsletter, Featured Finds, where we share little tidbits from around the world that we find interesting. The topics range far and wide, and are guaranteed to be interesting, educational, or thought provoking. Once a month, we'll be sharing the top ten highlights (on no particular order) from the weeks prior. February highlights are below. Enjoy!


1 / Kay and Anne from Mason Dixon Knitting are "Banging out a Carbeth". Are you?

2 / As business owners who have young children, we have given a lot of thought to making our office welcoming to pumping. Most, though, aren't so lucky

3 / In honor of her son James, our dear friend - and spectacular ray of sunshine - Margaux Hufnagel started a campaign, The Rare Stitch. Read about it here.

4 / Knitting is my job, but sewing is my hobby. Enjoy your hobbies - not everything has to be a side hustle!

5 / This 90 year old Czech artist is basically the person I hope one day to become. 

6 / I created a tutorial on working increases within charts. A perfect new skill for working the Delia hat from The Andorra Collection or Bennett Creek from the Luma Collection!

7 / Cashmere. We all love it. And we're concerned about the care and health of the people and animals involved in the processing. But just how ethical is ethical cashmere?

8 / Which Bernadette are you?

9 / There were some pretty spectacular moments of the Olympics. But we couldn't help but notice all of the participants knitting - like this ski coach from Finland.

10 / Ada Blackjack: seamstress, survivor, inspiration.
