All the Adorable Tools You Need 
from Katrinkles!

 . 

We are delighted to introduce Katrinkles to our community of knitters and crocheters at Wool & Grace.  We love these adorable wooden tools that will help keep you on track throughout your knitting projects.  Katrinkles Mini-Tools have everything from Gauge Swatch Rulers to Needle/Hook Gauges (both pictured above), to keys for those knitting basics that we can't ever remember like M1R/M1L and German Short Rows (pictured below).  These Mini-Tools are $9 and can be hooked together to carry in your notions bag everywhere you go.  

    


We also love the variety of stitch markers available from Katrinkles (pictured below).  Ring Stitch Markers are printed with friendly reminders of increases and decreases, perfect for reminding you where to do what!  We also have a set perfect for sweater knitting, printed with instructions like "BOR" (beginning of row), "RS" (right side), "sleeve", "front", and "back" - indispensable tools for sweater knitting.  Stitch marker sets are $14 each and each comes with 6 stitch markers.

What's On Our Needles?  Let's Ask Sarah!


We all look up to Sarah as an awesome knitter: her years of experience and technical knitting expertise gives us all something to strive for.  When recently asked what's been on her needles, she gushed about her recently finished Bouquet Sweater (pictured above, pattern by Junko Okamoto) that she knit up using Blue Sky's Eco Cashmere.  When I asked Sarah about this project, she reported that Pioneer (the yarn the pattern calls for) is actually more like a DK-weight yarn, and that Eco Cashmere was a perfect match. As for Eco Cashmere, she loves it so much she needs to make another sweater out of it, and if she had her way - she'd sleep on sheets made of it! 

Eco Cashmere is a delightful blend of virgin and recycled cashmere.  As a dk-weight yarn, it's a great weight for sweaters and accessories that can be worn throughout the three seasons (or even in summer).  Because of the nature of it's production, it's also a relatively good deal (for cashmere!).  Each skein is 164 yards and $33.  Click here to learn more and buy online!
