BT FOR LYS

In an effort to lend relief to LYS who are closing their doors to flatten the curve, Brooklyn Tweed has announced their Together Apart initiative. Through May 15, every skein of Brooklyn Tweed purchased on www.brooklyntweed.com or from a LYS will benefit the LYS of your choice. Choose from one of the discount codes to save up to 30% off and in return BT will donate up to 30% off to your LYS.

Quaranite Kits

Shit That I Knit has launched Quarantine Kits – a beginner level knitting kit for those wanting to keep their hands busy during their social distancing time. This limited time project kit is  perfect for newbie knitters and will not only deliver the tools to cast on a cowl, but the instruction, too. STIK founder Christina and her mom have created tutorial videos that will be available in the knitwear brands’s exclusive knitting Facebook group.

It’s In the Bag

Joji & Co has released a new bag and this time it’s for sock knitters. Made with hammered leather, the Box Bag has a no fuss, square shape to fit your sock or small project. Use the simple handle to tote the bag with you on-the-go or fold it down and use it as a yarn bowl. This bag’s first run is now available in black and yellow.

CAST ON: Happy Harvest Cowl by Elizabeth Smith

Elizabeth Smith has released her Happy Harvest cowl as a standalone pattern to help support LYS. Purchase a couple of skeins of bulky weight yarn from your favorite LYS (seriously – shop don’t stash) and cast on this free, patterned cowl that just so happens to match the designer’s Happy Harvest Poncho.
