Blended + Squish

The Blended Cowl from designer SknitsB is perfect for one of our store-favorite (and locally-dyed) yarns, Old Rusted Chair Squish DK. Blended is way easier than it appears; you'll only be working with one strand of yarn per round as the "color work" simply consists of slipped stitches! Cowl measures 45" and is shown worn doubled around the neck.

Each kit contains two skeins of Squish DK, one skein each of two colors: a speckle skein perfectly paired with a tonal. Our sample is worked up in Before Midnight + Your What!?, but you can't go wrong with any of the combos we've put together! Click here to see them all; you'll also need a 32" circular US7 needle (click here), and you'll need to grab the pattern here.



 Antarktis is a simple, slightly asymmetric triangle that's addictive to knit and easy to wear. If you find yourself knitting one Antarktis (and then another… and then another...) don’t say we didn’t warn you; we've knit this pattern too many times to count!

We've put together eight delicious combinations; our shop sample is worked up in elegant black and koi, but there's a combo for every mood!

Sweater Weather Cross Stitch Kit

You already know where we stand on this: all weather is sweater weather!


This adorable cross stitch kit is pretty close to our exact philosophy...just worked up in cross stitch! We featured several other cross stitch kits on Instagram last week and they quickly sold out. While we're working on replenishing them, we do still have a few Knitter's Sampler kits (click HERE) and Sock on the Line kits (click HERE) available! 


If you're looking for more cross stitch inspiration - or maybe you have loads of floss and fabric and want a new pattern - we have an amazing collection of October House patterns available right HERE if that sounds up your alley!
