The best opening segment I can supply is a wonderful project.  I think this one works just fine!  


The Koko Bean Hat– a FREE Pattern. 

I love this hat- knit it up in Encore Worsted, Worsted Merino Superwash, or even Tosh Vintage.  Just 100g.  And no need for a pompon when a hat has a pretty top like this one has. 



It’s the time of year again to think about Holiday gift knitting and crochet.  For the next 12 weeks we will offer up some great gift ideas for everyone on your list. 
Week 1  Cielo Knit Below Cowl

This FREE Cowl pattern needs just 2 hanks of Cielo to make it happen. An easy knit into the row below project.


Cielo is a chainette constructed blend of superfine merino wool and nylon.  Big needle knitting.
Each 100g hank boasts 109 yards.  Sooooooo soft.


Cielo Hat & Scarf Set
With just 2 hanks of Cielo you can also knit up a hat & scarf set.  This quick project can be finished in just hours.  FREE Pattern at The Knitter’s Edge. 

Cielo comes in 10 beautiful colors.

Next week: Encore Tweed knit & crochet projects- more great gft ideas.



What The Flock Inspirations

Bruinen Shawl is a gorgeous crocheted piece to work up in one of WTF’s 10 step gradient sets.  FREE Pattern.  Pattern is mostly charted- great for those learning to read crochet charts.

What The Flock 10 step gradient sets come in many color combos.

What’s New?  Some Seasonal Ideas


Little Pumpkins Hat

Basketweave Cowl

Our Little Pumpkins Hat is a great fall accessory.
And it works so well with our Basketweave Cowl.
Both FREE Patterns knit in Encore Worsted.

New from A Natural Alternative

From our favorite soap maker: 4 perfect autumn scents

Witches Brew: Spicy and herbal, a cult classic among the daring. 
Sweater Weather:  The first signs of autumn may stir up the scent of turning leaves that have fallen — a leafy, yet dried almost woody scent, that captures droplets of morning dew. 
Pumpkin Spice:  Needs no explanation, the ultimate fall “feel good” scent.
Apple Cinnamon: The cinnamon scent will tingle your nose.  This is the traditional holiday aroma. 
We also have many additional scents from A Natural Alternative Soaps.  All natural products that smell and feel so good.
