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!
