We have just the thing! Feed Your Creativity is a new series of classes featuring yarn and patterns from Kollage. Anyone who [...]
I’ve posted several times about knitting on my Summit Shawl made from Kollage Yarns’ Milky Whey yarn (50% milk, 50% soy). This lovely shawl has been in the works for a few months, but it is finally finished and I love it! The pattern for the shawl is available free from the fantastic online knitting [...]
There are not one, but two fabulous opportunities coming up for quilters and knitters to explore the quilt and yarn shops on the Delmarva Peninsula. The Fine Needle is participating in both events. First up, is the “Shop Hop Comes to Us” event sponsored by the Heartland Quilters of the Eastern Shore. This takes place [...]
During the renovation of the shop, I took the opportunity to gather all my knitting needles and notions into one place. I did the same, but on a lesser scale, with my sewing stuff. It was a down and dirty organization – I had a plastic wheelie cart with drawers, which I labeled “straights,” “circulars,” [...]
It’s been a bit like Christmas the last couple of weeks – and I’ve not had much time for sewing and knitting (although there has been some!). I’ve spent most of my time pricing and cataloging new stuff – some of which is NEW and some of which is not so new, just restocking. Rather [...]
Yesterday I wrote about how much I’ve been sewing lately, but that I was anxious to do some knitting. I have a few projects going on the needles (10, 20 or so, who’s counting). Mostly I’ve been working on my Summit Shawl and a pair of socks using Sock-a-licious (hello? sock yarn with silk in [...]
Last week I mentioned that I was working on quite a number of things, and I thought I’d give you an update on my progress. Keeping you informed is really helping me get some things done (yes, as in completed!!). This past week has been about sewing – oh there has been a bit of [...]
Almost every knitting (and crochet, for that matter) pattern has the following line: US X needle or [and this is the important part] size to obtain gauge. See, the needle size in the pattern is a suggestion. It’s probably the needle size that the designer used to get gauge. The designer may be a tight [...]
At some point in your knitting, gauge becomes important. It might not have factored in at all when you were in the scarf stage (if it goes around your neck, then great!), but when you enter the world of garment knitting, gauge becomes crucial. Way back when, yarn came in just a few weights (which [...]
What do you get when you combine a fine superwash merino wool, a bit of nylon for stability, and a taste of silk? You get Kollage Yarn‘s newest yarn: Sock-a-licious! Available in 12 lovely marbled colors (and yes, we have them all!), this yarn is sure to please the most discriminating of sock knitters. At [...]
