The Gentle Cycle

Purl Soho wants your finished objects to look their best. The past week, the New York City-based yarn destination introduced Sweater Soap, an organic, plant-based, rinse-less soap designed to clean even the most delicate of hand knits. Use your favorite scent – Unscented and Ylang Ylang + Cedarwood – to either hand wash or machine wash your most deserving handknits.

Countdown to 2020

If you missed out on a yarn advent calendar this year, there is no shortage of online countdowns. Love Crafts is going beyond Christmas and is counting down to 2020 with a new treat each day through December 31st. The treat is available for 24-hours, giving you plenty of time to save it to your library. Today (behind e-door 16) is a classic hat and mitt set from Blue Sky Alpacas.

Retreat in 2020

Even though most of us are overwhelmed (with joy, of course!) by the holidays, it’s time to start planning your 2020 calendar. For your consideration, Webs Yarn’s Second Annual Spring Knitting Retreat happening April 30 – May 3 in Massachusetts’ Pioneer Valley. Save the date (registration opens on January 16, 2020) for this long weekend of shopping, classes, community, and, of course, yarn.

CAST ON: Comfort Zone by Espace Tricot

Sure there’s buzz about the Knives Out white sweater, but we’re smitten with this poncho just the same. Shown in classic winter white, this perfectly simple poncho features a twisted rib turtleneck and side details, a split hem, and a modern profile. Worked in lofty Aran weight yarn, this poncho is knit in the round from the top down.
