Both German and French are spoken there, and with its old Gothic architecture and modern high rises, the city is a beautiful blend of rustic and sophisticated. Likewise, the Bienne Tee is a lovely mix … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday – Bienne Tee

I mean absolutely no disrespect to those … Continue reading Free Pattern Friday – My Poncho

I made dishcloths with Cotton Supreme Batik and after heavy, HEAVY use for the last 6 months or so, this yarn has not faded one bit! Amazing! Still has the same bright color it had when brand new and very soft. Highly recommend this yarn.
Uptown DK is BY FAR my fave acrylic. It’s great for decorative kid items that need to be washable. Easy to knit with, just untwists a little with cast-ons and rip-outs. That’s a nitpicky little thing on such a great yarn at this price point.
I personally love Classic Shades Sequins Lite and the way the colors striped, love the little bit of bling.
