Let’s Keep Warm This Winter!

Let’s move onto some bigger project ideas for selfish Knit & Crochet time.
A sweater would be perfect for the cold winter and for the “can’t come soon enough” Spring.

January Knitting- Sweater Weather

A warm sweater is a great “for me” project. We can help you through it- from choosing yarns to sewing on buttons.
Lori Versaci’s original DK version.
Knit it in Mad Hatter.
A bit heavier version. Knit it in Worsted Merino SW as shown.
Knit this in a softly textured yarn
such as New York or Davila.
Fashionable diagonals- Knit it in Madtosh Vintage or Homestead.
The perfect canvas for the many colors of Kenzie.
Fingering weights such as Ella Rae Lace Merino or Breathless
are right for this beauty.

Compliments is Coming!

Susan Fenner, owner of the Compliments Boutique in Bath, will be visiting The Knitter’s Edge with her “one of a kind” pins, painted vintage bags, and jewelry. Susan Fenner was a fashion illustrator for many upscale shops in and around the Lehigh Valley. She began designing her own jewelry in 2002.

Breathless Cush

Breathless Cush is a superwash luxury chunky weight with an amazingly soft hand. The big sister to our Breathless. 75% Superwash merino, 15% Cashmere and 10% silk. You will love the soft squooshy hand. Here at TKE for a Limited Time Only- come see our 30+ colors! Solids & Prints

Great fair isle practice work with 2 colors of Breathless Cush.

Cabled Cush Hat
Our own FREE Pattern that uses just one hank of Cush.

I really love this one- come try it on. Takes one hank of Cush.

Easy fair Isle work- looks great in a print and a solid Cush.
