Join us for 4 Fridays of beautiful little projects perfect for summer knitting!
We’ve chosen patterns from a fabulous book series with a literary twist. The Defarge Books are full of knit and crochet designs inspired by beloved characters from classic fiction. In the first book—What Would Madame Defarge Knit?—there are twenty-one knit and crochet designs each inspired by a character you know and love.
The second book—What (else) Would Madame Defarge Knit?—contains 27 new knit designs (including a weaving pattern with DIY loom instructions) all based on new characters. Whether it’s a knitted amigurumi Friend from The Secret Garden, a Smashing Cap and Cuffs from Somerset Maughm, or Ball Gloves for Jane Bennet, each design in the book will capture your imagination.
These books bring together a host of knitting (and weaving!) talent to imagine what their beloved fictional characters would knit and wear. From Tristan and Iseult to Jane Bennet to Miss Marple, characters from many of your favorite books finally get the knitwear they deserve.
Take a break from the kids and relax in the air-conditioning to learn the basics or try something a little more challenging. We’ll be here to help!

I must confess, I may be in love with the couch in this picture. But the tea towel and matching cozy are lovely projects with some nice “mindless knitting” in the middle.
Planning on knitting one of these new patterns? Let us know in the comments!
I-cord makes a nice round knit cording, used for edging or toggle strings. It can be a little daunting at first, but this video tutorial by Bridget McKenzie makes it easy.
The kitchner stitch produces a seamless, invisible join between two open ends of knit fabric. It can be tricky to learn, but if you dislike binding off and seaming it can be a wonderful option for shoulder seams and more.
Happy new year! We’ll be closed for inventory and restocking Thursday and Friday.
Because we’ll be closed on First Friday, we’re rescheduling our celebrations for Friday, January 10.
We hope you enjoyed your holidays, and we’ll see you when we reopen on Saturday January 4!
