The team at Anzula Luxury Fibers has spearheaded a campaign to help fiber friends in need. Designer and podcaster Mary Beth Temple and LYS The Salty Sheep lost their homes and office/yarn shop when Hurricane Florence pummeled the North Carolina Coast. Through October 15th, 100% of sales of Anzula’s Camille Scarf will go directly to Marty Beth and The Salty Sheep. We’re humbled and proud to be a part of an industry that helps their own in the good times and the bad. Now excuse us while we go buy this cute one-skein pattern.

Florida-based Emma’s Yarn has just announced that they are adding a DK weight to their fingering weight lineup. Joining Beautifully Basic, Practically Perfect Sock, Super Silky, and Hella Hanks is Simply Spectacular DK, a DK weight, 4-ply made up of 75% Superwash Merino and 25% Nylon. The soft skeins hold color beautifully, which is a good thing when you have cool colorways with names like Wish You Were Beer and Nailed It.

With Halloween officially less than a month away it’s time to get started on your holiday knits. Thankfully, Susan B. Anderson already has our project planned. Meet Trick-Or-Treat Bear, a sweet little bear dressed up as a not-so-spooky cat. With worsted weight yarn and size US 6 double points, this project is all treat and no trick.  Give it to your favorite trick-or-treater or find a place for it next to the candy corn to make your decor just a bit sweeter.
