Summer! Time for pools, ice cream, shorts, flip flops, cotton yarn, and easy breezy stitching! Welcome to our once a season Fiber Flux Finds! So many lovely readers ask me about supplies and yarn...where to find things? What are knitters and crocheters using? What's new out there? Here's 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! (Note: This post contains affiliate links)
I have always been a huge fan of Clover's stitch markers and when I found these I was definitely curious. They are the same locking stitch markers in fun colors, perfect for knitters and crocheters alike, but with a fun addition. A little clip allows you to leave a note on your work right where you need it. Keep track of your row, a particular stitch, when to make a change in your work, etc. Try clipping one to a yarn ball that has lost its label too!
This lovely cottony yarn is a perfect choice for summer stitching. Cascade Ultra Pima yarn is machine washable and has a beautiful sheen...check out those gorgeous bright colors!
Do you ever misplace your scissors when working on a project? It seems as if every time I need to make a snip, I spend far too much time digging around for my elusive scissors. The clover yarn cutter pendant can be worn around the neck to keep your yarn cutting at arm's length. Try putting one on a yarn tote zipper too!
Need a great yarn for dishcloths and other kitchen and bath projects? Lion Brand Kitchen Cotton yarn is 100% cotton and comes in 12 fabulous bright colors...machine washable too!
If you have an ever growing yarn stash like me, these super cute and modern stash baskets are a great way to keep everything organized. Included in this kit is a written pattern, plus the yarn you'll need to make a basket...two sizes to choose from too!
Have a light weight project on your stitchy to-do list? Lorna's Laces Soulmate is a luxurious fingering weight yarn that comes in a wide variety of variegated and total colors...simply lovely!
I have seen this fabulous own basket pattern before, but recently came across this kit! Generously sized and includes the pattern plus 2 skeins of your choice of colors of Cascade Ecological Wool, a beautiful 100% Natural Peruvian Wool.
If you're looking for an affordable yet luxurious satiny yarn with fantastic stitch definition, look no further! This worsted weight yarn is elegant and gives a gorgeous sheen to your projects.
Adding a beautiful decorative pillow is an easy and inexpensive way to spruce up a room. The Everyday Lace Pillow from Linda Perman includes the pillow pattern, plus 3 skeins of super soft Cloudborn Superwash Merino Sport Twist Yarn in the color of your choice!
Cascade 220 is a great worsted weight yarn to work with and has seemingly endless color options. I was delighted to learn that it is available in superwash too...awesome!
I use and simply adore these hooks (check out my very positive review here). Clover Amour hooks are comfy, colorful and fun to use...but not ready to commit to a whole set? No worries, purchase them individually here to check them out!
