The holidays are here, and it’s time to start decorating! Crochet designer Salena Baca has just released a new book, Crochet for Christmas – which has some seriously cute and modern holiday designs. Just look at the cover, how amazing are those crochet cabled stockings!

If you can, I suggest you get your hands on a copy of this book because Salena and her designing contributors did a wonderful job with the patterns. They’re fun and modern and sure to put a smile on your face. The skill levels of the projects vary, so you’re sure to find something for beginners and more advanced crocheters as well.

Thanks to our friends at Stackpole Books, we’re bringing you a wonderful giveaway in which 2 winners have a chance to win a copy of this book along with a set of Bonbons® in the Nature colorway to make the reindeer mug cozy you see above. See details below for entering.

Provide Comfort During Challenging Times: A “Healing Shawls” Giveaway!

October 23rd, 2015

We’ve appreciated your stories about knitting and crocheting for friends or loved ones during challenging times, and in response, we’re bringing you a book filled with beautiful crochet shawl patterns, Healing Shawls (Crochet) by Leisure Arts.

We understand that words may not always be enough when it comes to expressing concern or hope for someone else’s well-being. When friends and family are faced with difficult circumstances, sometimes the best way to show or tell them you care is to make something for them. Giving someone a handmade gift is a great way to show your support; a handmade gift is always heartfelt and appreciated.

Perhaps you know someone who is ill, has faced a financial setback, or is working through a personal difficulty like a job loss or divorce — a comforting shawl can be a great gift to give. The shawl is symbolic of the hug you’d give them if you were there. When knitting or crocheting the shawl, it’s also a nice to think positively about the recipient to transfer the energies of well intentions; it becomes a meditative process.

In addition to 15 beautiful shawl designs, this book also features personal stories from people who have made and given healing shawls for people they care about. Today, we’re giving two lucky winners the chance to win a copy of the Healing Shawl book along with 6 skeins of Landscapes® in a color of your choice, to make the Striated Triangles Shawl.


Congrats to Julie T. of Florida and Mona K. of Georgia! Please check your inboxes, if we do not hear from you within 7 days, new winners will be selected.

Rules & Guidelines:

1. Entries must be received by November 6 at 11:59pm EST

2. US entries only.

3. Must be 18 and over to enter.

4. One entry per person.

25 Knits for Dolls – Enter an Enchanting Giveaway for a Chance to Win!

October 14th, 2015

EnchantedKnitsGiveawayImageNicky Epstein’s newest book, “Enchanted Knits for Dolls“, is a collection of 25 amazingly creative costumes for 18-inch dolls (such as dolls from the American Girl collection). This book release is perfect for the upcoming holidays, giving you enough time to knit something special for the little girl in your life.

Nicky has given these dolls unique personas by adorning them with meticulously crafted outfits. These fun costumes are diverse and will appeal to the interests of many young children. They can dress their dolls as an ethereal flower fairy, a whimsical witch, an exotic genie, a pirate, and so much more. There are even four specially created pattern sets for both the child and the doll, so they can match and be twins (#twinning!).

Last month, our Brand Ambassador, Shira Blumenthal had the pleasure of interviewing Nicky at our store — the Lion Brand Yarn Studio in New York City — for a Tea with Shira episode. You can see some of Nicky’s fabulous doll designs below!
