MULTIPLICITY $5.00  each

The last of the Multiplicicty I will be getting is at the shop now.  It will not last long.
Multiplicicty is an intriguing thick & thin roving wool.  It changes color at the same time it changes thickness.  This allows Multiplicity to produce a knitted fabric that changes texture at intervals.    The 1 or 2 ball scarf shown below is a quick and easy knit for the holiday season.  Pick up Multiplicity this week for only $5.00 a ball.  It is going fast.

Feature yarn this week

Lima Ball

Lima by Rowan is a new absolutely lovely yarn.  Mostly Alpaca with just a dash of Merino and Nylon.  The chainette construction gives it incredible loft, and thus incredible yardage.  Lima Cowl

We have knit up a 2 ball cowl with Lima, and you may try it on at the shop.  This is an easy knit, with a diagonal st pattern that looks like its woven herringbone- yet so simple...  Free pattern available with the yarn puchase, only at The Knitter's Edge.

 So Many New Toys!

Cat Purse


Zebra Keychain


New Laura Burch


new stuffed animals 

This cat is a new zippered purse- just the right size for a young girl, or for us older girls in need of a strorage place for our knitting accessories.   There are many other animals as well- even an owl that can hold your I-phone!
This colorful Zebra can attach to your knitting bag just to make you smile.  Also a great addition to a child's book bag.
We have recently received many, many new Laura Burch bags.  Some have cats, some dogs, horses, or just a beautiful design like the one shown here.  As always, Laura Burch bags are very reasonably priced.  Check out our terrific selection of new designs today!
