Behind the Scenes: Fall Photoshoot

Ready to knit all the things?! It's become a Knitting Bee tradition to release a series of patterns in the weeks leading up to the winter holidays. Most are smaller projects, designed by our talented staff, perfect for gifting. They're the type of projects we enjoy knitting (and would enjoy receiving), worked up in yarns we love. This year, we decided to shine a light on some of our favorite designs from past seasons, giving them a new look and feel by changing up the yarn. Plus, Knitting Bee staffer and ravelry designer Trisha Mitberg has created a number of...

Posted by Jami Brynildson on

Did you notice today's date? It's 12/13/14, the last sequential date for at least the next twenty years. Doesn't have a thing to do with this week's quick & easy gift to knit, but I can't help but bring it to your attention. While we're talking numbers, there's only 12 knitting & crocheting days left until Christmas Eve and only 4 days until the start of Hannukah. Don't stress ... there's still plenty of time to craft a few gifts! Here's a sweet little project that you can knit in just a few evenings, the Sasanqua Spa Set. Designed by Nancy Hinsch,...

Henny Penny Trio

Posted by Jami Brynildson on

If you're looking for a quick gift or stocking stuffer to knit or crochet, we've got you covered! Meet the Henny Penny Trio. From left to right, there's the Mama Hen Headscarf, the Beyond Basic Chick Headband (both knit) and the To Shell With It Headscarf.
