|When our knitterly backlog gets to us, we often feel like we'll never finish our projects. Nothing raises the spirits like a quick dose of instant gratification.|
But not all yarns that provide a quick fix are alike. This week we look at the stunning yet super fast and easy-to-knit Jam from Knit One Crochet Too.
In the Boutique: Mini-Sizers
Do you tend to use finer-gauged needles? Our new, special-edition mini-NeedleSizer is for you. It measures needles from US 0 to 11 and is capped with a cheerful bright orange vintage-style bead.
In the Forums: Teaching Children?
Do you have any favorite small projects that will help children learn the basic knit stitch and casting on and off? Share them!
