What's On Our Gift List? Ask Alex!

If you're looking for some gift inspiration, Alex is the gal to ask!  This year Alex has a few Wool & Grace items on her wish list!  Curious? 



Alex is a serious blanket knitter, and while she knit up a Spectacular Spuntaneous Blanket for the shop, she has yet to make one for herself!  Five skeins of this super-soft, super-bulky yarn is on her list to knit up her own Spectacular Blanket.  Alex's simple design leaves lots of room for creativity, and we can't wait to see what she comes up with her own.  Each skein of Spuntaneous is 109 yards and $25.  To learn more and buy online, click here!



Two sweaters after working with Brooklyn Tweed's Shelter, and Alex is officially in love with this yarn.  So when Churchmouse released an adaptation of their Pressed Rib Muffler & Hat pattern using Shelter, it jumped to top of her queue!  This handsome take on a classic scarf uses 3 colors of Shelter for its striking look.  Each skein of Shelter is 140 yards and $13.75.  To learn more and buy online, click here!

A new favorite tool for Alex is Knitters' Pride Pattern Holders.  These sturdy folios include magnets that are easy to move but stay in place, to help you keep track of where you are in pattern.  They can be positioned to stand up, and fold up easily.  They come in especially handy for reading your knitting charts!  The Knitters' Pride Pattern Holders come in two sizes and are $18.89 and $22.95.

Leads to Knitting Inspiration
