Congratulations to Linda! She won the Coastal Knits giveaway.
Written by Alana Dakos and Hannah Fettig, Coastal Knits contains fabulous patterns, unified by the theme of the two designers getting their inspiration from the two separate coasts they live near. The book is a joy to look at, with lovely graphics, stunning photography that makes you want to visit all the places they talk about, and designs that tempt me to set aside everything else I’m doing and just knit one pattern after another.
If you don’t already own this wonderful book, you can check out the Coastal Knits website to see what I mean!
I recently returned from the big TNNA trade show in Columbus where I was introduced to a new and unusual line of knitting needles. They’re fun, and made in the USA!
Indian Lake Artisans is a Michigan-based company that uses local supplies and sustainable resources to make their unusually shaped needles. Knitters may find the hexagonal shape easier to hold than the typical round needles, helping to more easily control their needles and make nice, uniform stitches. What I love about them is that each size has a different copper top. Feathers adorn the smallest size (US #6/4mm); the owls on the size 7/4.5mm are my personal favorite.
The pair I’m giving away are size US 15/10mm. Made of birch, they are 10″ long and topped with the cutest little log cabins!

Aren’t these stitch markers perfect for the upcoming holidays? I adore anything resembling cloisonné. I hope you do too! My friend Christy made these; they fit up to a US size 10 needle. I’ll be giving them away in a drawing, right here, on December 10th!
