Welcome to our monthly Fiber Flux Finds! So many of you lovely readers ask me about supplies and yarn...where to find things? What are knitters and crocheters using? What's new out there? I decided to create a fun new monthly feature by curating a list of what might be new, something we have not yet seen, or maybe just something I am loving and want to share with you! There are so many wonderful things for the yarn obsessed...enjoy checking out the list!

#1 Clover Takumi Crochet hooks are beautiful and have a soft and light touch in the hand. I have been a big fan of the Takumi knitting needles for years (especially the double pointed needles) so these hooks were exciting to see.
#2 Presencia Pearl Cotton Thread Box in "Pastel" gets me so excited for spring! I saw this thread and immediately thought of a stack of sweet little macaroons. So many possibilities for making...on the site it says it can be used for hand stitching or embroidery. So pretty!
#3 This lovely shawl is a full kit so you can make your own! Includes full written pattern, featuring a diamond lace motif, plus enough Schachenmayr Catania yarn to make it...lovely!
#4 I'm loving this sparkly yarn from Cascade, Cherub Aran Sparkle. A pretty metallic twist gives it a little something extra, plus the colors (see below) are fantastic!
#5 Have you seen Clover's Wonder Clips yet? These handy clips are perfect for holding items in place while you work, such as when you're seaming a sleeve for example. If you also sew, they come in multiple sizes too and even have little marks on them for the seam allowance. Be sure to check out the jumbo kit too.
#6 Learning to knit? Teaching someone to knit? These super cute knitting needles from Lion Brand are perfect to learn on. They are technically for kids, but I think anyone would love them. I have a set and they are great, not too big or small and one is blue and one is red, making it easy to visualize and have a better understanding of how the work passes from one side to the other. But, I think my favorite thing is the cute little (bear? cat?) faces on top.
#7 It's been out for a while, but I've had my eye on this pretty yarn for babies for quite some time. Have you tried it yet? Modern Baby yarn from Lion Brand comes in a fabulous palette of colors and it super soft.
#8 Isn't this Bobble Bag great? In this complete kit, you'll get the full written pattern, plus eleven skeins of 100% cotton Schachenmayr Catania Grande. I totally need this for summer!
#9 Have trouble threading yarn? The Clover Yarn Threader is one of those amazing gadgets that are so helpful when you need it. Made for even the bulkiest of yarn, plus a little loop the the top if you want to hang or wear it. Never used a threading tool? Check out my tutorial here.
#10 Oh my goodness, how fantastically beautiful is this yarn? This is one of those super special skeins that you save for a fabulous project. Artyarns Beaded Silk & Sequins Light is a fingering weight yarn in luxurious silk then spun with sparkly sequins. I can totally picture this for a shawl for a formal occasion. Do you know a lovey bride to-be? Check out the gorgeous ivory color way in the back in the image below. My Zinnia Flower Shawl pattern would look so pretty made with this yarn!
#11 I am so ready for spring! This beautiful ladies crochet top kit includes a full written pattern plus eight included skeins of Schachenmayr Catania. I love how versatile it is too. Wear with a tank top as pictured on warmer days or with a long sleeve shirt underneath on those chillier early spring days too.
#12 Have you tried Malabrigo yarn yet? It is one of my favorites! Although I have not used it in a while, it is one of those yarns that makes you slow down and savor each stitch. Malabrigo Arroyo yarn is a finer weight in 100% superwash merino. Check out those fantastic jewel tones too...they are hand dyed in small lots.
Happy stitching lovelies!
