NEW - Knitting and Crochet with Friends Needles and Hooks - Circular, Straight, Double Points, Tunisian, Soft Touch, Steel and Bamboo have Arrived!

Hello Everyone!

We are pleased to announce the launch of our newest products from Knitting with Friends now available online and in the shop, Bamboo Double Point Needles.   Very durable and super smooth, this new line of double point needles are available in 7-inch lengths.  




But wait, there is more....

Knitting with Friends Bamboo Straight Knitting Needles in 9 inch lengths have also arrived.... Sizes available US 0 - 15 (2 mm - 10 mm).



And, yes there is more....

Crocheting with Friends has also arrived with NEW Steel Crochet Hooks ranging from size 0.5 mm (yes, that is a 16 my friends who love small, teeny tiny hooks) through 2.7 mm C/2 00 Steel.... A huge range of sizes here for my thread crocheters as well as my beading friends who love the small hooks for working on their lacework when beads are required.



And, if you want a hook with a great handle, Crocheting with Friends now offers a Soft Touch Crochet hook - size available range from a C/2 through J/10 - these hooks are ergonomically friendly with a super comfy grip and very, very pretty!



Bamboo Crochet with Friends Hooks have arrived - now available are sizes E-4 through N-15 as well as the rare, hard to find size 3.0 mm and 4.5 US 7.   Each hook is 6 inches and we have made them with a groove for your thumb for great maneuverability while you are working with them.   This groove is especially helpful if you have issues with your fingers or hands - the groove fits perfectly with your thumb so you can have a lighter grip so the hook will not roll in your hands if you are unable to make a tight grip.   



Tunisian Crocheters.... we now have a range of sizes available of 10 inch bamboo Tunisian Crochet Hooks (Afghan Hooks) - they are simply beautiful and super smooth.     Sizes range from 3.0 mm through N-15 10.0 mm hooks.



We have had a flurry of activity since our announcement of the Knitmaster Needles with Superflex Cord from Knitting with Friends.... We have had many knitters come in to purchase more of these needles after they have worked with one - everyone loves them!









A new favorite for the 2017 season has been Acacia Yarns Alpaca Cotton - yes, 35% Alpaca and 60% Cotton, and 5% Acrylic create a gorgeous fabric for sweaters, mittens and hats.... each 50 gram ball has 88 yards and works up like a dream... this has been a great sweater yarn for the season and even when wet, the yarn stays put and doesn't stretch.   A great, great yarn for a warm and comfy everyday sweater!   Oh, and did I mention that it is soft... and works for those who don't wear wool.... yeah!   Available in a variety of colors!



Have a great day and fiber on!
