Gift-Along With the Bee

Let's Knit Together

Posted by Jami Brynildson on

I've been crushing on Melanie Berg's fresh & modern wrap designs for quite some time. So when our newest staff member Kelly C. started gushing about the Drachenfels shawl she was working on, I knew it would be my next project. Turns out a couple other waggledancers around the shop also wanted to knit Drachenfels, one thing led to another and a knit-along was born!   Here's what you’ll need: Three different colors of fingering or sport weight yarn, about 350 yds each. We have oodles of wonderful yarn choices in stock including Tosh Merino Light, Black Trillium Fibres Lilt, Anzula Dreamy or Cloud, and...

Sasanqua Spa Set

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,...

Jingle & Jangle Photo Booth

Posted by Jami Brynildson on

Thanksgiving at the Brynildson's brought together four different families, lots of dogs and the biggest turkey I've ever seen. After dinner, everyone took a turn posing in our Week 9 KAL project: the Jingle & Jangle Elf Hat. We had a blast!   Big thank you's to Trisha Mitberg for bringing us another design that's quick & easy to knit, oh-so-cute to wear. You'll need two colors of Malabrigo Chunky (10% off in-store at the Bee through Dec. 4) and US size #11 - 16" circular and double pointed needles. We used a My Mountain faux fur pompom on the end, but you...

One to Crochet, One to Knit

Posted by Jami Brynildson on

Double your crafting pleasure! This week we have two designs for you, one to crochet and one to knit. Pictured above is Gigi, a very easy crochet scarf designed by Christina Peters. Gigi uses only two basic stitches, chain stitch and double crochet. It's Christina's selection of a beautiful color-shifting yarn that makes this scarf something very special. You'll love how Schoppel-Wolle Gradient slowly transitions from one color to the next, and how smoothly the merino wool glides over your hook. I'm sure there's somebody on your holiday gift list who would love to cozy up in colorful Gigi.   Our second pattern this week is inspired...
