|New Englanders have our special techniques for making it through the long winter.|
Sun lamps, massive doses of Vitamin D, or trips to warmer climates all involve one thing: bringing back the healing properties of the sun.
There's another way to brighten your spirits, and it doesn't require pills, electricity, or air travel. I'm talking about adding glittery, sparkly effects to your knitting. And that's what we explore this month in a special series.
New This Week
Considering dipping your toes in the great waters of glitter? What's out there, and what do you need to know? Start your journey here.
Possibly the loudest of the loud, the shiniest of the shiny, these superfine yarns are nothing more than sequins on thread. Learn the ins and outs of these unusual sequined-thread yarns from Berroco.
Betty and the Boutique
In February we take the time to let our special somebodies know just how much they mean to us. This year, say it with Betty and Her Beau!
