We've been knitting lots of socks lately. Toe up...cuff down... matching...not matching...fleegal heel...fish lips kiss heel...picking up gusset stitches... It's amazing to me how something so small with essentially the same pattern, can have so many options. I have to say, I am enjoying the toe up. My very long toes have plenty of room. AND, I really don't care to pick up stitches. With a standard pattern, sock knitters play with zillions of yarn options. I love self striping yarn, and matching them isn't really important. But! Skacel offers some options. My favorite, Das Paar. The hank, bundled together connects merely with a couple of knots. Once the knots are cut on the swift, you roll the first ball. Mark which color you start with for rolling the second ball. Each will be 50 grams and start and end with the same colors as the paired ball. You'll love it! (Das Paar are the three hanks to the left of the white hank.)

In June, I took a business trip to D.C. for market.  As one would expect, yarn hung in every corner of the show room.  However, on my last day I happen to spot a group of young women surrounded by beautiful models of trendy sweaters, scarves, and such.  No yarn, just magazines, and a beautiful magazine at that: Pompom Quarterly.   Just the feel and quality of the paper in my hand was enough to bring me in.  Proportioned at just the right size for holding and for a craft bag, it measures 9" x 6.5".  I asked one of the women to tell me the story of their magazine because it looked so interesting.  She quickly introduced me to the woman at her side as being one of the founders.  She and another woman, both in England at the time, found it difficult to find patterns in knit and crochet they felt were more on trend.  What better way to get what you want than to develop it yourself?  Now with some of the production happening in the Austin area (you might even recognize area scenery in photographs), Pompom found its niche in the hearts of many crafters.  You will enjoy not only the well written, photographed, and charted patterns of knit and crochet, but you will find other articles just as interesting.  Recipes, art, and whimsy wind across the pages, too.  We happily carry the magazine as well as their special issues, devoted to specific designers.  Come by and page through...you'll love it, too!
