12 July 2017

I hear many complaints about interchangeable needles coming unscrewed. Yes it has happened to me too.

One of the simplest things to do is to use the 'key' that comes with your needles. What helps is to also using a rubber gripper. The one that you have in the kitchen to open jars with is just right. It helps you grip the needle tightly enough to get a good 'lock' on the threads when using the key.

If that isn't working for you there is one more trick. I use the Aleene's Stop Fraying that we sell here at the shop. You can use Emer's WHITE Glue if you don't have the Stop Fraying. Just a SMALL drop of either on the tip of the treaded end will help lock the threads.

No unexpected loss of stitches with a needle and no cable.

Hope this helps.....

Just Arrived!

FEZA ARTIST
Extrafine Merino Fingering
Superwash

This is a hand-dyed fingering and Feza is stepping up their game when it comes to colors. This extrafine merino really is soft - it has a beautiful hand. I found an image of one of the colors but because of hand-dyeing and color rendition on computers  . . .  I think the one that I have is prettier.

This yarn knits at 7.5 sts/ inch and is 440 yards per skein. Did I say it has a beautiful hand?

Just arrived!

Diamond Luxury
Pure Donegal Tweed
made in
Ireland

This isn't the Donegal Tweed of old. This yarn has a nice hand and comes in beautiful colors - just what you want for that aran sweater that you've been thinking about. This yarn is true aran weight. The tweed knits at 16 sts/4 inches, great for cable definition.


With a small adjustment for gauge, this yarn would be great for knitting Lucy Neatby's, Cables After Whiskey.
